Brazil is ready to launch its first satellite for boosting broadband capacity and national security later this month.

The Geostationary Satellite Defense and Strategic Communications Satellite (SGDC) will be launched on March 21 from the Kourou Space Center in French Guiana.

SDGC is intended to protect the transfer of privileged national security information, and was approved by the government after revelations of the US National Security Agency spying on the country became public.

Alongside this, SGDC will reportedly improve the broadband internet services, providing them to remote areas across Brazil over approximately 15 years.
