BRADAR is part of Embraer Defense and Security group, established in early 2011 to lead the process of strengthening the Brazilian defense industry and security. Benefiting from the large experience accumulated by Embraer S / A during its 42 years of existence, Embraer Defense and Security holds great management training and systems integration technology and is accredited to diversify and invest in other areas of the defense industry, focusing on the Brazilian priorities.
Therefore, the Embraer Defense and Security group has implemented a strategy through its partners around the world in critical areas of knowledge, such as command and control, radar and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
On March 15th, 2011, Embraer Defense and Security signed a contract to purchase 64.7% and later 90% of the share capital of the radar division of OrbiSat Amazonia S / A, implying the breakup of OrbiSat in two companies: BRADAR Industry S / A, focused on defense and radar remote sensing; and the other operating in the electronics segment, headquartered in Manaus (AM), which remained under the former owners controls. For details, read the Embraer Press Release published in March 2011.
