AEL Sistemas strengthens Brazilian high-tech industry capacity at international fair
Company presents military and space electronic systems for defense and security, in Chile; among the highlights is the WAD for the Brazilian Gripen and the military multimission microsatellite
AEL Sistemas will attend the International Air and Space Fair (Feria Internacional del Aire y del Espacio- FIDAE), which will be held from April 3 to 8 in Santiago, Chile. The company´s stand at Pavilion Brazil, an ABIMDE / APEx partnership, will promote AEL´s products and services for the Brazilian Armed Forces and international delegations.
"Attending the 20th edition of FIDAE, the greater aerospace fair in Latin America, is an opportunity to demonstrate and strengthen the national capacity to develop innovative military and space technologies for defense and security areas. We are today one of the most specialized Brazilian companies in the defense sector and we want to take this Brazilian force to this leading international event", says Sergio Horta, president of AEL Sistemas.
Among the technologies to be exhibited by AEL at FIDAE 2018 is the Wide Area Display (WAD), which is part of the latest generation cockpit of the Brazilian Gripen, the new Brazilian Air Force fighter. This smart panoramic display is the main visual source of interaction with the pilot´s operational and tactical environment (flight and mission information, symbologies and images). With high dimensions and a sophisticated human-machine interface, the WAD increases situational awareness and enables better management of the combat environments.
Participants at the fair will also be able to closely check the Military Multimission Microsatellite (MMM), a small space platform for deployment in military missions with quick and low cost responses to defense demands; and the plate X-86, embedded computer module, VPX standard, with high performance for aeronautical and military applications, which is already in operation on the KC-390 aircraft. The X-86´s hardware, software and mechanical projects were developed by AEL Sistemas´ Brazilian engineers, enabling the increase of the mechanical design capacity and the production of printed circuit plates.
FIADE is an important event in Latin America for companies to show their advances in land, air and naval defense in front of representatives of the Armed Forces and national and international delegations. The fair has become the main business platform of the region. In the last edition, in 2016, 120 thousand visitors attended the event and nine conferences were held, with 4 thousand participants in total. Among the 46 exhibiting companies, 25% were from Chile and the rest from the rest of the world.
For this year, 580 exhibiting companies and 60 participating countries are expected, of which seven are unpublished. In addition, more than 600 delegations from 30 countries are expected to attend the event during the five-day fair. The Brazil Pavilion, inaugurated in the 2012 edition of FIDAE, will have about 80 companies and participating entities.
