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. 

Rogerio  Salvador,  SIATT  Commercial  Director,  added: “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.

“The  MoU  between  SEA  and  SIATT  gives  us  the opportunity to  expand our existing  capabilities within the Brazilian defence  market,  which as a  whollyBrazilian-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.”
