Akaer to show tech for civil, military aircraft at Dubai Airshow

DUBAI, November 12, 2023

Akaer, a Brazilian company, will bring to the Dubai Airshow its broad portfolio of technologies for civil and military aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), armoured ground vehicles, satellite cameras and missile subsystems.
"Dubai Airshow, from November 13 to 17, is one of the most important meeting points in the world for the Aerospace and Defence ecosystem. A great event, which strengthens Akaer's global presence," said the group's CEO, Cesar Silva.
Strategic weight
With a solid history of more than three decades of operation, Akaer has expanded its presence on the global scenario by establishing businesses in more than 20 countries.
The Middle East has strategic importance in the company's growth plans, with already consolidated partnerships in the UAE (Edge, Adasi and Calidus), Saudi Arabia (INTRA), Turkey (TAI) and Israel (Earth).
“The region brings together important countries with huge interest in developing technologies for the Aerospace and Defence sectors. A favorable environment for Akaer, which has innovation in its DNA,” noted Silva.
One of the most recent highlights in Akaer's portfolio was the development of the Hürjet fighter in partnership with TAI (Turkish Aerospace Industry). The aircraft, designed for advanced training and light attack actions by the Turkish Air Force, is capable of reaching supersonic speeds and made its first flight in April. The Brazilian company was responsible for the structural design and deployment of the Hürjet's fuselage and empennage systems.
Akaer also played an important role in the KC-390 cargo ship project, in cooperation with Embraer, and in the development of the Gripen E fighters for the Brazilian Air Force, in partnership with the Swedish Saab.
Furthermore, the company is involved in important national projects, such as the modernisation of the Cascavel armoured vehicle and the production of the OLHAR thermal imaging monocular, both for the Brazilian Army.
It also leads the development of a 'superdrone' with hybrid propulsion, the AKR-H2, a project that has a grant from FINEP (Studies and Projects Financier or acronym in Portuguese for Financiadora de Estudos e Projetos), a Brazilian government funding agency.
Akaer has its headquarters in São José dos Campos city (São Paulo state, Brazil) and two commercial offices outside Brazil, in Portugal and Turkey.--TradeArabia News Service
