SCD 3 [INPE]
The satellites of the SCD (Satelites de Coleta de Dados) series are equipped to collect and transmit meteorological and environmental data collected by automatic platforms (PCD) installed on land or on oceanic buoys. The data is relayed to one or more ground stations.
SCD 3 is a new design, which was to be launched into a higher orbit to enlarge the area covered by the satellite.
This mission has apparently been cancelled.
