Monday, June 04, 2012

Achieve deadlines of the CBERS satellites program and adopt an industrial policy for the suppliers’ qualification and new technologies diffusion were among the main challenges identified by Leonel Perondi during his inauguration ceremony as director of the Brazil’s National Institute for Space (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Epaciais – INPE), in São José dos Campos (SP), on Friday (06/01).

Perondi was inaugurated by the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Marco Antonio Raupp, during a ceremony attended by the Brazilian Space Agency’s President (Agência Espacial Brasileira – AEB), José Raimundo Braga Coelho, and by the former INPE’s Director, Gilberto Câmara.

In his speech, Perondi highlighted the activities of INPE, whose mission is “to be a national reference in space science and technology and its applications, maximizing direct returns to society in products and services, industrial polices and knowledge dissemination”. He believes that the maintenance of intellectual capital and knowledge in the institute is a major challenge.

The new Director hopes to expand the research and development programs, strengthen the infrastructure of the space program, and support the areas of space weather, climate change and weather forecasting. The collaboration with the National Center for Monitoring and Natural Disasters Warning (Centro Nacional de Monitoramento e Alertas de Desastres Naturais - CEMADEN) and the control of satellite attitude and orbit were also highlighted.

Perondi also mentioned the current set of factors that is considered in favor of the “good understanding, harmony, cohesion and effectiveness in the development of space activities,” as both Minister and AEB president have acted for many years at INPE. "They are connoisseurs of the space program and INPE needs. We have great conviction that this knowledge will bring a highly positive scenario for the Brazilian space program," the new director concluded.
