Brazilian Space Agency visits Saipher



The president of the Brazilian Space Agency (AEB), Marco Antonio Chamon, visited Saipher to learn about the company's activities in the space area. During the meeting, details of Saipher's recent actions in space sustainability and resilience were presented, especially within the scope of Space Situational Awareness (SSA), which includes the monitoring and cataloging of space objects (operational and non-operational), conjunction analysis, collision avoidance maneuvers and launch window calculations for artificial satellites. It is essential to highlight that Saipher is the only company in South America to develop systems and provide services to increase Space Situational Awareness (SSA), perform satellite conjunction analysis, and increase the security levels of civil and military space operations.


The Director of Innovation and New Business, Brigadier José Vagner Vital, described the visit as highly positive: "Welcoming the Brazilian Space Agency (AEB) to our company is a privilege. AEB plays a crucial role in Brazil's space development, and we are honored by the interest shown in our work. We had a unique opportunity to present our projects and the Holistic Risk and Uncertainty Reduction System (HORUS). We believe that the product will significantly contribute to the safety and efficiency of operations in space. We thank AEB for continued support of innovation in the space sector, and we hope this collaboration will continue to benefit our space program."

In addition to the Director of Innovation and New Business, the visit was attended by the Commercial Director, Jones Brandão, the Operations Director, Aline Buzato, as well as Dr. Wagner Mahler, and the Space Systems Analyst and Engineer, Matheus Pacheco.


About HORUS

The Holistic Risk and Uncertainty Reduction System (HORUS), developed by Saipher, aims to allow operators of civil and military space systems to have Situational Awareness tools in the Space Environment and the Space Combat Domain, aiming for safer space operations, including maneuvers related to intentional or unintentional conjunctions. Additionally, the system enables monitoring of space debris and provides support services to mitigate risks associated with debris density in the maneuvering environment of interest.
