march 13 2012

The Boeing Company and Elbit Systems of America have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that supports the development of advanced avionics capabilities in Brazil.

Boeing has selected Elbit to provide the Large Area Display system that will be part of an advanced cockpit system to be offered on Boeing fighter aircraft, including the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and the F-15 family of aircraft, including the Silent Eagle. As a key supplier to Boeing fighter aircraft programs, Elbit has committed to investing in the development of advanced cockpit avionics capabilities at its subsidiary in Brazil, AEL Sistemas S.A. of Porto Alegre.

"Boeing and its Tier 1 supplier-partners are committed to bringing key technologies to Brazil," said Boeing Military Aircraft President Chris Chadwick. "Through the projects identified for AEL Sistemas, Boeing and Elbit support Brazil's objective of developing the aerospace capabilities of local industry for the sustainment of its current and future military aircraft fleet. At the same time, we're focused on building long-lasting opportunities for Brazilian industry in the development and production of key technologies as Boeing continues to enhance its family of tactical fighter aircraft to meet the emerging needs of our customers around the globe."

The MOU outlines opportunities for AEL Sistemas to participate in the design, development, production and support of some Large Area Display software and hardware. The knowledge and capabilities gained from this work also will support Elbit and AEL Sistemas' efforts to establish an Advanced Cockpit Technology Center of Excellence in Brazil, which will position AEL Sistemas to expand its advanced cockpit avionics market reach to other fixed-wing platforms, as well as rotorcraft.
