The strategic agreement was signed by FAB Department of Aerospace Science and Technology general director Air Force General Maurício Augusto de Medeiros and EDGE senior management in São José dos Campos, Brazil late last month.
Under the agreement, both organisations will explore opportunities in air and space, smart weapons, unmanned and autonomous platform domains.
“The visits will enable EDGE to pave the way for greater collaboration on knowledge exchange, research and development cooperation, and the co-development of advanced defence systems, among others,” an EDGE spokesperson said.
“The agreement is in line with EDGE’s strategy of building mutually beneficial partnerships supporting defence capability development in the UAE and Latin America, where EDGE recently established its first international office, located in Brasilia.”
The company previously announced a strategic partnership agreement with the Brazilian Navy in June this year, to co-develop a long-range anti-ship missile and advanced solutions such as anti-jamming technology.
