Focused on the development of new technologies and markets, Avibras is presenting its capacity for developing military systems at Locked Shields, the largest cyber defence simulation exercise in the world, to the countries that compose The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other invited nations.
The annual event, organized by the Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE), started on April 13 and will continue until the April 16 in Tallinn, Estonia, considered the most digital country in the globe.

The invitation for this important event occurred during the International Conference on Cyber Conflict (CyCon), organized by CCDCOE, at which Avibras accompanied a committee of the Brazilian Army (EB) Command of Cyber Defence.
A group of Avibras engineers is allocated at the Avibras Innovation and Technology Space (EATI) to focus on the competition.
Potential – Engineer Fernando Arantes believes this to be a great opportunity to show Avibras’ skills to develop systems in a prominent international context. “The success obtained up to this point is the result of a team focused on the concept of Security by Design and exclusively dedicated to this Project”, Fernando declared.
