RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil --- Savis and Bradar, affiliated companies to Embraer Defense & Security, and Rockwell Collins announced today at LAAD Defence & Security a cooperation agreement to jointly evaluate business opportunities in defense applications.
This initiative will enhance Savis and Bradar activities in the international market, working in conjunction with Rockwell Collins, and also search for existing complementary capabilities in the companies’ product lines.
The first opportunity identified is the radar technology integration into the Rockwell Collins FireStorm system, the most precise portable solution available in the market to assure call for fire precision. The new capabilities offered by Savis and Bradar have the potential to extend the protection and situational awareness of the troops providing early warning of potential threats.
This integrated solution provides an option to augment the capability to offer both close air support and troops call for fire, being capable in the future to operate integrated with attack aircraft, such as the A-29 Super Tucano.
“This Savis, Bradar and Rockwell Collins agreement will open opportunities to integrate existing capabilities in these companies and offer better integrated solutions not only for the Brazilian Armed Forces, but for the global market,” said Jackson Schneider, Embraer Defense and Security CEO.
“Combining both Rockwell Collins´ and Savis and Bradar´s suite of technologies and capabilities will result in groundbreaking offerings for our local and international customers”, said Colin Mahoney, Senior Vice President of International & Services Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
