                         very early in satellite development cycle. Mission requirements 
                         are analyzed taking into account power consumption and data rate 
                         each payload needs. Dealing with the limited power budget 
                         available in CubeSat-based missions is a challenge. In this paper 
                         we show the usage of the satellite simulator developed by Chagas 
                         [1] at INPEs Space Mission Integrated Design Center (CPRIME), in 
                         the analysis of the NanosatC-BR2 issues regarding operation 
                         concept of its payloads. NanosatCBR2 is INPEs second scientific 
                         CubeSat, expected to be launched by early 2019. The simulator 
                         encompasses orbital propagation, power generation and consumption, 
                         equipment usage, the use of mass memory for On Board Data Handling 
                         (OBDH) tasks, and communication with ground stations for science 
                         data download. The focus of the simulations was to verify 
                         plausible mission operation concept with regards to the power and 
                         data budgets considering the operation of the three physical 
                         payloads onboard the satellite. Each simulation scenario varied 
                         the individual operations of each payload relative to the orbital 
                         period and data generation limits. The simulation results 
                         highlight scenarios in which power and data budgets are balanced 
                         in order to meet the operation requirements of each payload. These 
                         scenarios were very useful to the NanosatC-BR2 team to make the 
                         decision concerning the feasible implementation.",
