From ISR Systems to Vehicle Upgrades to Space Engineering
Exhibiting at Eurosatory in the ABIMDE (Brazilian Association of Defence & Security Materiel Industries), Akaer will showcase a variety of ertinent solutions, ranging from UAS and thermal monoculars to satellite components and armoured vehicle modernisation projects. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the company has undergone a recent period of rapid growth, signing new contracts, launching new projects and hiring new talent.
Demonstrating its objective – to develop a portfolio of solutions appropriate to the modern battlefield – Akaer offers a wide range of missile subsystems, from imaging IR sensors and laser proximity fuzes to laser guidance systems and dual laser/imaging sensors. In the UAS sector, Akaer will show the Albatross, which features a large radius of action for ISR mission tasking. In addition, the OLHAR Multipurpose Thermal Monocular provides qualitative performance advantages for users, enabling them to conduct surveillance in conditions of restricted visibility, to support tactical engagement or patrolling activities.
The company will also display its 3UCAM lens, a generator of high-resolution imagery for remote sensing and observation satellites. Akaer also develops optical heads and payloads, signal processing and payload control equipment and provides conception and design services for complete space missions, space systems engineering, power and mass balance, design and thermal analysis, radiation analysis, reliability, availability, maintainability and safety studies, as well as battery and control unit and power distribution for space use.
In the field of armoured vehicle modernization, Akaer is engaged in upgrading the EE-9 Cascavel wheeled reconnaissance vehicle for the Brazilian Army. It is providing a comprehensive package of improvements, including a new engine, revitalized suspension, automated fire control for optimizing firing choices and situational awareness, air conditioning, new optronics to replace existing optical sights to detect, locate and identify threats, an anti-tank missile launcher in the main turret, a ballistic computer and an additional C2 computer to analyse onboard sensor inputs in real time.
