On the second day of the event, the company will also launch the book O Voo da Akaer, which tells the story of its 30 years of existence and collaboration with the Defense sector
From December 6th to 8th, 2022, in Brasilia (DF), Akaer will be present as an exhibitor at the 7th BID Brazil Trade Show, the largest event of the Defense and Security Industrial Base in the country, organized by ABIMDE (Brazilian Association of Defense and Security Industries), in partnership with ApexBrasil.
During the show, Akaer will present some projects such as the Modernization of the Brazilian Army’s EE-9 Cascavel Medium Reconnaissance Armored Vehicle (VBR) and the Revitalization of the Brazilian Air Force’s P-3AM Orion wings, among other high-tech products and solutions.
One way for the company to keep up to date and abreast of market trends is by participating in the most important events in the segments in which it operates. “Trade fairs are great opportunities to exchange information and promote business”, says Aldo da Silva Junior, Akaer’s Vice-President of Marketing and Sales.
“We are always present to show our preparation and capability in the development of technological solutions, which include the complete cycle, from conception, design, systems integration, testing and certification,” says Aldo.
Combat Vehicle Modernization
The company shows its capabilities for modernizing armored vehicles, which increase the useful life of the vehicles and the combat force. Among the possible modernization packages are the implementation of a new motorization, revitalization of the suspension, installation of automated control towers to improve situational awareness, replacement of optical sights with last-generation optronics for searching and aiming targets, and installation of anti-tank missile launchers.
We highlight the possibility of installing modern shooting computers to perform all ballistic calculations and another command and control computer that will analyze in real time the environmental parameters that may interfere in the execution of missions.
Recently, Akaer won the tender opened by the Brazilian Army to upgrade the armored vehicle Cascavel. The program is already underway.
The company exposes its capacity of developing aircraft modifications – changes in structures, primary mechanisms, new interiors and installation of equipment and systems.
All these activities are fully applicable in commercial, VIP and military aircraft both rotary and fixed wing. For modernizations, we highlight the work done with the P3 Orion of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) destined to patrol the Brazilian coast, in which it underwent a complete revitalization process of its wings, thus extending the useful life of this important aerial surveillance platform.
In modifications, Akaer is developing for Turkish Aerospace Industries a special version of the ASOJ (Outstanding Jammer Aircraft). In this project Akaer is responsible for most of the modification, including structures, systems installation, aerodynamics, among other technology areas.
To celebrate its 30 years of history and participation in the Defense market, which will be completed in 2022, on the second day of the Show (Wednesday, 07th), at 5pm, the company will launch the book “O Voo da Akaer – Há 30 anos desenvolvendo tecnologia de ponta e inovação para o mercado global de aeroespaço e de defesa, gerando competências à soberania do Brasil”.
The book narrates the entire trajectory of the company, from its conception to the present day. Akaer has its headquarters in São José dos Campos (SP/Brazil), and commercial offices in two other countries.
Brazil BID Show
The BID Brazil Show is marked by constant technological innovations and brings together the biggest players in the market, promoting a business and networking agenda.

Akaer will be at stands 37 and 38 of the South Wing of the Ulysses Guimarães Convention Center.
