Rohde & Schwarz Chosen by Brazilian Air Force

Brazilian Air Force (FAB) has recently been selected Rohde & Schwarz to equip its modernized Embraer E-99M aerial early warning and surveillance aircraft with modern and secure communications.

R&SFAB is modernizing five aircraft, each E 99M equipped with highly secure software defined radios and waveforms of the SOVERON family, widely used in the country. The modernization is part of an FAB project together with Embraer and international suppliers, such as Rohde & Schwarz.

The E-99M aircraft is vital for detecting, tracking, identifying and air traffic control. It complements ground radar signals, improves situational awareness, and transmits information via secure data links with Rohde & Schwarz waveforms. This allows FAB to participate in aerial surveillance missions to combat irregular traffic. The aircraft is interoperable thanks to secure communications with other aircraft and ground stations, equipped with Rohde & Schwarz products.

“We have a long history as a partner for secure communications with FAB, that started more than 20 years ago, having committed ourselves to deliver customized solutions that meet all needs of Brazil,” Alipio A. Teixeira, Managing Director CEO, Rohde & Schwarz do Brasil Ltda., explains. “Technology, local content, training and support are key and we have a proven track record to be a reliable partner with our strong local presence.”

FAB received the first modernized E-99M aircraft in a ceremony at Embraer Defense & Security facilities together with key suppliers. Rohde & Schwarz was honored to participate.
