The PION-BR 1 mission is a picosatellite developed by the PION Labs at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) to the 1P PocketQube form factor

PION-BR1 is an radio amateur mission combined with education mission with the aim to promote access to space technologies to students and interaction between students and the radioamateur community. The primary mission will be a digital store-and-forward messaging experiment using the NGHam protocol. The secondary mission is to compare and evaluate the performance of the store-and-forward experiment using GFSK and LoRa modulations. In order to support classroom and STEM activities, the project will also evaluate the attitude of a pocketqube in a space environment and evaluate the temperature environment the satellite is inserted in and perform data collection of a magnetorquer experiment.
