May 29, 2009 – São José dos Campos, May 29, 2009 – Embraer has finalized the delivery of the protocol it developed for the datalink system called Link-BR2 to Brazil’s Aeronautics Command. In close interaction with the Committee for Implementing the Airspace Control System (Comissão de
Implantação do Sistema de Controle do Espaço Aéreo – CISCEA) of the Aeronautics Command, after signing a contract in 2006, the protocol will allow the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira – FAB) to run its operations with a modern data exchange system. It can also be adapted for interoperability with the Brazilian Navy and Army, on joint missions.
“It is with a great sense of satisfaction that we have participated in this important project of the Aeronautics Command,” said Orlando José Ferreira Neto, Embraer Executive vice-president, Defense Market. “This product will make the Link-BR2 system operational, thus equipping the FAB with a top-quality datalink protocol, which is on the same level as the most modern datalink systems in the world.”
In recent years, Embraer has invested in developing onboard software for combat aircraft, so as to supply not only aircraft platforms, but also services for integrating the sensorial and mission systems. Among its most recent projects, the highlight goes to the Super Tucano aircraft, the modernization of the FAB’s F-5 and A-1 (AMX) jets, and the Intelligence, Surveillance and
Reconnaissance (ISR) family.
The Company also offers ground-based solutions for the Communication, Computer, Command, Control, and Intelligence (C4I) system, and it is involved with the training area, by developing the Training Operational Support System (TOSS) for the Super Tucano, an integrated computational tool comprised of four systems: the CBT (Computer-Based Training) that improves pilot learning; the FS (Flight Simulator); the MPS (Mission Planning Stations);
and the MDS (Mission Debriefing Station) to analyze mission data and results.
