NanosatC-Br 1 is planned to launch on a Dnepr rocket from Dombarovsky near Yasny in May/June 2014.

The 1U CubeSat carries an ISIS U/V transceiver with 1200 bps FM AX.25 UHF command uplink and a 9600 bps BPSK downlink on 145.865 MHz.

NanosatC-Br 1 is the first Brazilian CubeSat project, developed at the Southern Regional Space Research Center (CRS/CCR/INPE-MCT) in collaboration with the Space Science Laboratory of the Federal University of Santa Maria (LACESM/CT – UFSM).

The payload instruments of the NanosatC-Br 1 consists of:
• A magnetometer to measure the intensity of the Earth Magnetic Field at the South Atlantic Magnetic Anomaly (SAMA) region and on the Brazilian sector of the Ionosphere Equatorial Electrojet (EEJ)
• A particle precipitation chip dosimeter

In 2011 Pirajá PS8RF reported on the AMSAT Bulletin Board that the project is receiving support from the Amateur Radio Association Santamariense (ASRA) and the call sign of the control station will be PY3EB.
