ISIS South America is based in Brazil and is focused on the realization of small satellite missions and the development of technologies for small satellites. ISIS and its partner LUNUS have realized the first CubeSat mission in Brazil, NanosatC-BR-1, in close cooperation with INPE and UFSM after several years of intense collaboration. In 2011 the flight hardware was delivered to Santa Maria Brazil and the various teams in Brazil, with the support of ISIS engineers in the Netherlands and South Africa are now moving forward to complete the spacecraft for launch. A second project, NanosatC-BR-2 is currently awarded to the team and the first hardware is to be delivered in 2012.
These first activities are part of a long term plan to establish a region nanosatellite expertise center in South America and to be the focus of nanosatellite activities in the region as ISIS South America.
