A strike in French Guyana is the reason why  the launching of  the Brazilian Geostationary Satellite Defence and Strategic Communications (SGDC)  has been postponed from Tuesday (21) to Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications. The launch will be made at the space center of Kourou.

The SGDC will be Brazil’s first geostationary satellite for civilian and military purposes. Among the satellite’s objectives are to expand broadband internet supply in Brazil, focusing on areas of difficult access, and help the armed forces in border operations, and actions such as rescue at sea and the safety of the airspace.
