The Alcantara base is one of the best strategically positioned in the world, not impacted by hurricanes or earthquakes, thus allowing for a reliable launch. The Alcantara launch base location saves 30% fuel to launch payloads into orbit. The Alcantara Launch Center currently has the necessary infrastructure to operate and launch satellites into low orbit. Brazil is very interested establishing commercial cooperation and increasing U.S. company participation in the Brazilian space sector.
