The agreement will see EDGE become a strategic partner of the Brazilian Navy by co-investing in long-range anti-ship missile development, as well as providing advanced solutions, such as anti-jamming technology, which is developed by EDGE in the UAE.
The Brazilian Navy will also utilise its fleet to support a full testing programme of the new missiles. The partnership underscores the two sides’ mutual ambition to be at the forefront of innovation and opens doors to export opportunities to key global markets, EDGE said in a statement.
“Following the initial signing of our partnership agreement at LAAD 2023, we are tremendously pleased to have now reached this significant milestone with the Brazilian Navy. As we embark on this innovation journey towards developing sovereign capabilities, this important partnership will reinforce EDGE’s commitment to developing advanced defence technologies through strategic cooperation, and we look forward to leveraging the Brazilian Navy’s unparalleled expertise in this field, and in the region. By combining our collective investment and knowledge, we aim to create superior world-class long-range anti-ship missiles that will add unique capabilities to EDGE’s portfolio of products,” said Mansour AlMulla, Managing Director and CEO of EDGE.
