São José dos Campos, Brazil, 2016/03/02 - Embraer Defense & Security will consolidate the operations of two of its subsidiaries, Savis Tecnologias e Sistemas S.A. and Bradar Indústria S.A - Embraer.com. NYSE: ERJ; Bovespa: EMBR3
The decision aims to maximize value for employees, customers and shareholders.
Savis is dedicated to developing, designing, integrating and deploying systems and services for border monitoring applications as well as for the protection of strategic structures. Bradar is a technology-based company specialized in the development and production of radars for applications in defense, security and remote sensing (SAR).

The union of these skills will offer integrated solutions with great potential for the domestic and foreign markets, contributing to the diversification of Embraer Defense & Security's customer base and the expansion of its products and services portfolio.
