Paper Abstract

The study of the space plasma environment is the goal of the experiments named: PLASMEX, ORCAS, MAGNEX and PHOTO. They constitute the payload of the first small Brazilian satellite for scientific applications (SACI-1). The SACI-1 is a low earth polar orbit satellite which shall be launched as China- Brazil Earth Resource Satellite (CBERS) piggyback, by the Chinese launcher Long March IV, in the beginning of 1998. All the space plasma data measured by the SACI-1 payload will be received and archived in the SACI-1 Ground Station by a software system which uses the relational data modeling to build the system database. Focusing on the space plasma data base, this article describes the Ground Station software facilities such as: quick-looks of the SACI-1 remote sensing data and the data access in raw form from the investigators, via Internet.
