On Tuesday (April 2), the Brazilian Navy (MB), represented by the Navy Technology Center in Rio de Janeiro (CTMRJ), and Embraer signed a Partnership Agreement for Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I), with the aim of promoting joint studies for the development of radars integrated with Command and Control Systems, for use in the MB’s main Strategic Programs.

Formalized during Latin America Aerospace and Defense (LAAD) Security & Defense 2024, considered the largest and most important defense and security fair in Latin America, held in São Paulo, the agreement was signed by the Director of CTMRJ, Rear Admiral Alexandre de Vasconcelos Siciliano.

The agreement establishes mutual cooperation with the aim of analyzing, from a technical and operational point of view, the increase in the level of technological maturity of the Gaivota X Radar, integrated with the Georeferenced Command and Control System (SisC2Geo), for surface search, and with the Unified Situational Awareness System for Maritime Information Acquisition (SCUA), for maritime surveillance tasks, using technologies developed by the participants.

It should be noted that the effort to develop independent technologies for defense products and cooperation to strengthen the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) are aligned with one of the National Defense Objectives, as set out in the National Defense Policy.

In this context, the nationalization of naval and Marine Corps equipment is one of the main tasks of the Brazilian Navy’s Science, Technology and Innovation Sector, in the light of the Navy’s Strategic Plan (PEM) 2040.
