São José dos Campos: Embraer will promote its full portfolio for the Defense and Government segment at the seventh International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition – Aero India 2009, to be held at Air Force Station Yelahanka, in Bangalore, India, February 11-15.
“Due to its growth in recent years, the Indian market is very special to Embraer, in terms of its potential for Defense and Government aircraft,” said Sergio Bellato Alves, Embraer’s Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Asia – Defense and Government Market. “Our Asia Pacific efforts have found this strong, emerging market to have a particularly significant synergy with Embraer’s quality products.”
Embraer and the Indian Government signed a comprehensive deal for three EMB 145 AEW&C (Airborne Early Warning & Control) jets, in July 2008, that includes training, technical support, spare parts, and ground support equipment.
These aircraft will receive the advanced electronic systems currently under development by India’s Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO). The first delivery is scheduled for 2011, joining four Legacy 600 jets in operation by the Indian Air Force (IAF), which are used to transport Indian VIPs and foreign dignitaries. A fifth Legacy 600 belongs to the Border Security Force (BSF), under India’s Home Ministry. The EMB 145 AEW&C is part of the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) family, which also includes the EMB 145 RS/AGS (Remote Sensing/Air-to-Ground Surveillance) and the EMB 145 MP (Maritime Patrol).
