ENAER and its subsidiary DTS will present their upcoming training aircraft PILLAN II at FIDAE 2022

Over the course of the exhibition, both companies will present the peripheral subsystems underlying PILLAN II, including the SIM (Flight Simulator). The SIM subsystem consists of a cockpit, a station for the instructor, and a mixed-reality visual system. Not only it allows for procedure instruction, but also planned mission practices, for military pilots to be trained under Visual Flight Rules.

This aircraft has been conceived as an evolved version of the T-35 PILLAN, that prioritizes the safety of occupants. It is a two-seater single-engine aircraft in tandem mode. The cabin resembles a combat aircraft equipped with the latest in avionics, enabling IFR flight, new wing design, retractable tricycle gear, and an air conditioning system. Optional night and day surveillance systems can be added with real-time data transmission.

The PILLAN II project will enable the implementation of state-of-the-art aeronautical technology and engineering in the national industry and, in turn, reinvigorate the manufacturing capacities currently available in ENAER and in other companies in the country to resume aircraft manufacturing in Chile after 8 years. And this is precisely why ENAER will be present at the new Air and Space Fair FIDAE 2022 to showcase their upcoming instruction aircraft.

Embraer and the Brazilian Army sign contract for four additional SABER M60 radars

Acquiring the SABER M60 radars is part of the Strategic Planning of the Brazilian Army 2020-2023 and expands the Land Forces’ operational capacity. It shows the commitment to the constitutional mission of homeland defense and contributes to the expansion of partnerships between the public sector, academia and industry in order to seek mastery of critical technologies in the defense area.

As a result of the partnership between Embraer and the Brazilian Army in developing a low-altitude anti-aircraft artillery radar, the SABER M60 Radar is 100% developed in Brazil, having entered operation in 2010 when the first units were delivered to the Army. In 2019, the technological update phase was completed, resulting in version 2.0 which has already been exported.

The SABER M60 is a search radar that integrates a low-altitude anti-aircraft defense system to protect strategic points and areas, such as factories, power plants, and government facilities. With 3D technology, it has a range of 32 nautical miles and an altitude of up to 16,400 feet, with the ability to track up to 60 targets simultaneously, including automatic target detection and classification. Easy to assemble and transport, it can be assembled in 15 minutes and includes Low Probability Interception (LPI) technology, which allows it to identify targets without being easily identified.

The SABER M60 can be integrated into missile-based weapons systems or anti-aircraft cannons and can be customized to be integrated into any other air defense system, such as the Brazilian Aerospace Defense System.

Embraer and the Brazilian Army Sign Contract for Phase Two of the SISFRON Program

“We are very pleased to sign the SISFRON Phase Two contract with Embraer, in continuation of the successful partnership and significant results already proven with the implementation of the Pilot Phase and complementing the operational capabilities of the Western Military Command,” said Army Science and Technology Department Chief, General Guido Amin Naves. “The SISFRON is technologically complex and of a strategic nature, which is why it is one of the Land Force’s structuring projects in partnership with Embraer, in the role of integrator, endowing the Brazilian Army with capabilities to execute its mission. Additionally, the program will enhance action taken by other government entities in the border area.”

The SISFRON implements a sensing and command and control structure in support of Land Forces’ operation, acting in an integrated way to strengthen the State’s presence and capacity to monitor and act on its borders, while enhancing the performance of other government entities with responsibilities over this area.

“The signing of the SISFRON Phase Two contract is an important recognition of Embraer’s investment and effort in the implementation of the Pilot Phase, making use of the company’s main competencies applied to land systems. We are sure that the continuity of the implementation with the next phase will enable us to retain and further develop knowledge and technologies that are critical to Brazil’s border surveillance area,” said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security.

The implementation of the program has contributed to the increase of technological capacity, as well autonomy and sustainability of the industrial defense base, by means of the acquisition of high added value solutions and with the diversification of national exports. These actions contribute to the generation of jobs and income in the technology and infrastructure sectors.

THE A220 LANDS AT FIDAE FOR ITS FIRST VISIT TO SOUTH AMERICA

Airbus Aerospace & Military chose the longest standing and most recognized exhibition in Latin America to premiere the newest aircraft in its portfolio, jointly with Swiss Air International Air Lines.

It is worth mentioning its performance, being the only aircraft specially designed for the 100-150 seat market that includes state-of-the-art aerodynamics, the Pratt & Whitney PW1500G geared turbofan engine.  This allows for a 50% reduction in noise footprint, and up to 25% lower fuel consumption and up to 25% lower CO2 emissions in comparison with previous generation aircraft.

Thus, Airbus strengthens its already consolidated ties with Latin America, placing its commitment and trust in the 22nd International Air and Space Fair, FIDAE 2022.

F-22 RAPTOR AT FIDAE 2022

Thus, on Saturday, April 2nd, the world’s most advanced combat aircraft landed on the Santiago Airport runway to deploy its full potential during FIDAE 2022.

It should be noted that the F-22 Raptor is the first 5th gen fighter to start service worldwide. In addition, it has multirole features that combine power, agility, and advanced avionics, giving it outstanding capability in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat, and making it one of the most powerful fighters in the world.

Lockheed Martin developed this work of aeronautical engineering together with Boeing for it to become a strategic deterrent continuously upgraded, given the nature of constantly evolving environments and threats. Some of its upgrades are related to interoperability systems, radar, and data link stability.

Thus, FIDAE 2022 will be the only instance this year for Latin America to enjoy and admire the incredible performance this technological marvel will exhibit, as the United States Air Force choose and trusted the prestige of the International Air and Space Fair as the opportunity to present their air show in the region.
