The company will demonstrate its portfolio, highlighting UAS solutions such as the Albatross, and aircraft and combat vehicle modernization capabilities.

Between November 2 and 5, 2022, the Brazilian company Akaer will participate in the “Indo Defence Expo & Forum”, considered the largest Defense fair in Southeast Asia and one of the most relevant in the sector in the world.

Held concurrently with Indo Aerospace Expo & Forum and Indo Marine Expo & Forum, the exhibition will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia. In its last edition, in 2018, it received more than 30 thousand visitors, including 217 foreign delegations.

“Always keeping an eye on national and international market trends, Akaer is present at important fairs to demonstrate its technological capabilities, foster business and stay on top of news and demands in the segment”, says Aldo da Silva Junior, Vice President of Marketing and Akaer Sales.

At Indo Defence, the company’s highlights will be the “Cascavel” armored fighting vehicle modernization program, the Albatross – UAS design for land and naval reconnaissance, which can be configured for other types of missions, and the capability of aircraft modernizations and modifications.

“We are prepared to provide solutions on air or land platforms, covering the entire development cycle, from conception, design, systems integration, testing and certification”, says Aldo.

  • Modernization of combat vehicles

The company showcases its capabilities for modernizing armored vehicles, increasing vehicle life and combat strength.

Among the possible modernization packages, we highlight the implementation of a new engine, revitalization of the suspension, installation of automated control towers to improve situational awareness, replacement of optical sights with state-of-the-art optronics for target search and aiming and installation of anti-tank missile launchers.

Of note is the possibility of installing modern shooting computers to perform all ballistic calculations and another command and control computer which will analyze in real time the environmental parameters that may interfere with the execution of missions.

Recently, Akaer won the competition opened by the Brazilian Army to upgrade the Cascavel armored vehicle. The program is already underway.

  • UAS

Another capability presented by Akaer is the UAS “Albatross” for land and naval reconnaissance, which can be suitable for other purposes such as ground attack. The platform has large internal compartments which, added to its hard points, allow the transport of a payload that can be composed of sensors and attack systems.

Through its innovative design and long flight autonomy, this system stays on the operating area for many hours, fully meeting the multiple needs of its operator.

  • Aircraft Modification and Modernization

The company showcases its ability to develop modifications for aircraft – alterations to structures, primary mechanisms, new interiors and installation of equipment and systems. All these activities are fully applicable to commercial, VIP and military aircraft, both rotary and fixed wing.

For the modernizations, we highlight the work done with the P3 Orion of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) destined to the patrol of the Brazilian coast, in which it underwent a complete process of revitalization of its wings, thus prolonging the useful life of this important platform of aerial surveillance.

In modifications Akaer is developing for the Turkish Turkish company Aerospace Industries an aircraft of the ASOJ special version ( Outstanding jammer Aircraft ). In this project, Akaer is responsible for most of the modification, including the structures, installation of systems, aerodynamics, among other areas of technology.
