Avibras and SMS will work together in the development of guided rocket and missile systems

The companies will collaborate to design joint solutions that combine their technologies and capabilities in precision guided weaponry, and that meet the needs of the Armed Forces of Brazil, Spain, and other allied countries.

The Brazilian company Avibras and Spanish company SMS (ESCRIBANO M&E, GMV, NAVANTIA Sistemas and SENER Aeroespacial) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding in which they join forces and establish a stable collaboration between both companies with the purpose of working on the development and promotion of joint solutions regarding guided rocket and missile systems. The signing took place during the FEINDEF International Defence and Security Fair in Madrid, and was attended by Brazilian and Spanish authorities as guests.

The agreement reinforces the position of both companies in a segment of high complexity and technological specialization such as precision guided weaponry, and seeks to combine the capabilities and experiences accumulated in this field by Avibras and SMS. Avibras has in its portfolio the ASTROS System, the most flexible system on the market due to its modularity and for being the only one in the world that launches ballistic rockets, guided rockets, and the MTC (Tactical Cruise Missile) from the same launcher. SMS, in turn, consolidates the main capabilities of the Spanish industry in missile systems, including technological areas such as guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) equipment and systems for rockets and missiles, actuation systems, command, control and communications systems, and the ability to integrate systems.

The agreement reached by Avibras and SMS encourages international technological collaboration in areas such as propulsion and GNC or communications in order to be prepared to present high value-added proposals that meet the requirements of different projects currently under definition, including the SILAM project of the Spanish Army or the evolutions of the MTC for the Brazilian Armed Forces. The agreement also contemplates exporting the joint solutions to allied countries.

According to Fernando Mato, CEO of SMS, “For SMS it is an honour and pride to be able to collaborate with a world leader in rocket and missile systems such as Avibras. With this agreement, we ratify our commitment to promoting international cooperation in systems of high strategic value.  We are sure that this agreement will be beneficial for both companies, which will contribute with their complementary technological and industrial capabilities, but above all, for our Armed Forces, which will have reliable solutions, fully adapted to their requirements and with national sovereignty throughout its life cycle”.

As for João Brasil Carvalho Leite, Director-President of Avibras, he has indicated that this agreement is of utmost importance for Avibras, which has found a strategic partner in Spain and SMS for two reasons.  “First, for its value as a Spanish industrial benchmark in missile systems and guided rockets.  Moreover, because its technological and industrial capacities are complementary to those of Avibras, and therefore do not limit the collaboration to one country. We will work together to offer the best solutions to our respective countries and other allied Armed Forces. We are confident that this long-term cooperation will result in great success with high value-added products to meet the customer needs".
