The Brazilian Navy and Embraer have signed a partnership agreement for mutual support in research, development and innovation aimed at developing onboard surface search and coastal surveillance radars.

The accord was signed on 2 April 2024 at the LAAD defence exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil.

“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,” Brazilian Navy Rear Admiral Alexandre de Vasconcelos Siciliano was quoted as saying in an Embraer press release. “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 co-operatively 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,” added Fábio Caparica, vice president for business development in Latin America for Embraer Defense & Security. “This co-operation will bring many advances, not only for the Brazilian Navy and Embraer but also for the Brazilian defence-industrial base,” he added.

Studies by the Brazilian Navy and Embraer cover the integration of the Gaivota X Radar with the Georeferenced Command and Control System (SisC2Geo) and the Unified Situational Awareness System for Maritime Information Acquisition (SCUA). The co-operation, according to Embraer, “is an important contribution to increasing both the high technological content of the navy’s Strategic Programs and the development of the defence-industrial base: one of the main objectives of the Brazilian National Defense Strategy”.
