Embraer Defense & Security to Take Part in SITDEF, in Peru
São Paulo, May 10, 2013 – Embraer Defense & Security will be present at the 4th edition of the IV International Defense Technology Exhibition & Prevention of Natural Disasters (SITDEF), which will be held May 15-19, in Lima, Peru.
“We are interested in taking part in the main defense programs in Peru in the areas of surveillance and monitoring, internal security, and border patrol,” said Geraldo Gomes, International Marketing and Sales Director, Embraer Defense & Security. “Our purpose is to establish wide-ranging cooperation with the local government by promoting the technological capability of Peru’s industry.”
The Company will have a stand located in the Inka Pavilion (no. 170-171) and it will offer a broad spectrum of integrated solutions that combine high technology and operational efficiency at competitive acquisition and operating costs. This includes the A-29 Super Tucano light attack and advanced training airplane, the family of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft, and the KC-390 military transport and refueling jet.
The Super Tucano is now in operation with nine air forces in Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia, and it was recently chosen for the Light Air Support (LAS) program of the United States Air Force, for the purpose of performing counter-insurgency missions in Afghanistan. The ISR aircraft family consists of three models: Early Warning and Control (AEW&C), Multi Intel system (Remote Sensing and Surveillance), and Maritime Patrol (MP). All of the aircraft are capable of operating in an integrated manner with the Super Tucano, via a data link system. The KC-390, which is in the development stage, has 60 letters of intent to purchase and will set a new standard for medium-sized military transport aircraft, in terms of performance and payload capacity. The first flight is planned for 2014 and deliveries should begin in 2016.
The portfolio of Embraer Defense & Security also includes state-of-the-art radar technologies, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and advanced information and communications systems, such as Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications.
