CBERS-4 (China–Brazil Earth Resources Satellite 4), also known as Ziyuan I-04 or Ziyuan 1E, is a remote sensing satellite intended for operation as part of the China–Brazil Earth Resources Satellite programme between the China Centre for Resources Satellite Data and Application and Brazil's National Institute for Space Research. CBERS-4 carries four cameras to take pictures of Earth in visible and infrared wavelengths. Its orbit allows the satellite to observe the same location at least once every three days in low resolution, according to INPE. China and Brazil each led development of two cameras on CBERS 4. China was responsible for the [US]$250 million mission's spacecraft bus. The satellite's cameras will collect black-and-white imagery with a top resolution of about 5 meters, or about 16 feet. Its sensors included thermal and infrared imagers capable of distinguishing different types of vegetation and locations where water is stored and consumed. The joint satellite mission—expected to last at least three years—will track wildfires and deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, observe crop yields and trends in land use, manage water resources, and study urban development, according to INPE.
