The Brazilian Navy and Embraer have signed a partnership agreement for mutual support in research, development and innovation. The cooperation aims to develop on-board Surface Search and Coastal Surveillance Radars, with an increase in the maturity of the Gaivota X Radar. The signing ceremony took place on April 2 during LAAD in São Paulo, Brazil. Studies by the Brazilian Navy and Embraer cover the integration of the Gaivota X Radar with the Georeferenced Command and Control System (SisC2Geo) and with the Unified Situational Awareness System for Maritime Information Acquisition (SCUA). The cooperation is an important contribution to increasing both the high technological content of the Navy’s Strategic Programs and the development of the Defense Industrial Base, one of the main objectives of the Brazilian National Defense Strategy.

Rear Admiral Alexandre de Vasconcelos Siciliano said: “We are proud to partner again with Embraer. This agreement consolidates the continuity of a long-term collaboration with a global technology leader that will expand the range of capabilities for the Brazilian Navy to fulfill its missions. Our expertise in the Gaivota X Radar will be complemented by Embraer’s cutting-edge technologies and advanced capabilities, allowing us to share knowledge and cooperatively develop cutting-edge solutions for the global market.”

“We are very pleased to sign this new agreement with the Brazilian Navy, an institution with which we have a solid, long-term relationship. This cooperation will bring many advances, not only for the Brazilian Navy and Embraer but also for the Brazilian Defense Industrial Base,” says Fábio Caparica, Vice President Business Development, Latin America, at Embraer Defense & Security.
