To strengthen the long-standing collaboration between the two nations, Embraer has signed an agreement with Portuguese aerospace businesses to create the Technological and Industrial Defense Base and strengthen Portugal’s defense capabilities.
Embraer, a Brazilian aerospace company, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Portuguese aerospace companies to develop Portugal’s Technological and Industrial Defense Base. The aim of the agreement is to enhance Portugal’s research, engineering, and development related to defense capabilities. Industry partners to the agreement include CEiiA, Empordef, and GMVIS Skysoft. The collaboration also supports the production and operation of Embraer’s latest Super Tucano light attack aircraft variant and reinforces the company’s long-standing relationship with Portugal in developing defense and aerospace capabilities for its warfighters. This agreement is seen as a new phase in the relationship between Embraer and the Portuguese State, following the successful partnership on the KC-390 Millenium transport aircraft training provided to the Portuguese Air Force.
