Published 3rd April 2019
UK defence and security electronics system specialist, SEA has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the wholly Brazilian-owned defence company, SIATT, a specialist in intelligent weapons and integration of high technology systems.
Agreement of the MoU provides a basis for the two companies to work together to develop a strategically important relationship to pursue routes to market for defence equipment and services in Brazil.
SEA provides an extensive product and service range, engineering solutions and in-service support to the defence sector both within the United Kingdom and to markets worldwide, including Asia, South America and Australia.
“SEA intends to bring the best of the industry’s technology to Brazil, transferring its knowledge to SIATT’s personnel to expand manufacturing, assembly and test capability in the local market,” said Steve Hill, Managing Director, SEA. “This strategically important partnership will help us expand our operations in Brazil, providing mutual benefits for SEA, SIATT and the Brazilian defence industry, which will have access to SEA’s leading products, including agnostic torpedo launcher systems, decoy launcher systems simulation and training services, and thin line arrays. As a company focused on the high-tech market, SIATT’s knowledge in the design, development, manufacturing and installation of hardware and software systems will be invaluable to SEA. There are many synergies between our companies in terms of expertise and innovation, and we are looking forward to what will be a mutually-beneficial partnership”.
Rogerio Salvador, SIATT Commercial Director, added,
“The MoU between SEA and SIATT gives us the opportunity to expand our existing capabilities within the Brazilian defence market, which as a wholly Brazilian-owned company, is extremely important to us. SEA’s global presence and links to the worldwide defence market can only be beneficial for SIATT, while our complex high technology focus and speciality defence products will enhance SEA’s offering.”
