In the same week that we had the illustrious presence of CISCEA at IACIT, on July 13, we received the special visit of PAME’s members with the presence of Colonel Marques, Colonel Mauricio, Major Cléber and Captain Carla. During the visit we presented the timeline with the main contracts already executed in partnership with PAME, in addition to presenting our facilities, part of the IACIT’s team, new solutions in our portfolio and the main projects under development. IACIT is grateful for the honorable visit and we are always open to welcome you.  
Last Tuesday (11/07), we had the honor to receive the illustrious visits of Brigadier Sérgio Roberto de Almeida (President of CISCEA) and Colonel Rubem Muller Schneider (Vice-President of CISCEA). During the visit  was presented the main projects executed by IACIT, current capabilities and perspectives in the development of solutions focused on airspace control and safety,  in addition to a tour in IACIT headquarters and factory facilities. At the end of the visit, we honorably received a honor plaque prepared in recognition of the services provided by IACIT during those years of partnership
From May 29th to June 9th, the graduation of the 1stClass qualified to operate and maintain the New DME System of IACIT - DME 0200. The training, held at the IACIT headquarters in São José dos Campos, was given by IACIT instructors César Augusto, Euclides Pimenta and Marco Rodrigues. The first group of attendees was composed of official members of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), appointed by CISCEA (from CINDACTA I, DTCEA-BR,DTCEA-BQ, PAME-RJ and SRPV-SP) in addition to updating the IACIT operational technical team. Some of the topics covered during the course were: the DME System Concept, DME
FOREWORD There was a time when being in the middle of something, a position, a place or even an opinion, was not a bad place. Whether you were in the middle of your class ranking or if you were in the middle of a queue of people, was already better than being at the end, although not as good as being the first. In a great majority of situations, being in the middle is not necessarily a bad thing; however, today we seem to live in a world oriented to the edge of things; Our global context exposes a reality that pushes us to believe that extremes are the only paths available to achieve success
The ETEP Faculdades promoted from June 7 to 9, the third edition of the Week of Management, Technology and Innovation (in Portuguese SGTI) which  addressed new themes this year. IACIT was present and gave a lecture about the contribution of IACIT to technological innovation in Brazil. The lecture was given by Eng Pérsio Vitor de Sena Abrahão, member of the IACIT Board of Directors and Project Office Manager, responsible for analyzing, designing, capturing and managing financial resources for technology, development programs and new products. The SGTI emerged with the objective of involving
The DRONEBlocker, popularly known as Drone jammer, is intended to interfere with the communication link between one or more Drones and their operators, preventing them from penetrating a certain protected area. Interference occurs through the emission of radio frequency (RF) signals at a frequency or frequency range used for the control and navigation of the Drones. For the interference to be efficient, these signals must have specific characteristics, because a large part of the marketed Drones use spectral scattering broadband modulation techniques, such as Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum
  IACIT, honored with the invitation, was present in the 1st Cyber and SWIM Workshop held by the BAF (Brazilian Air Force) departments DECEA and ICEA. The objective of the Workshop, achieved with great success in IACIT’s opinion, was to consolidate the perspectives regarding the state of the art and the paths to be followed for each topic addressed in relation to the vast and complex universe that encompasses the concepts that surround SWIM. The event featured representatives from the Air Force, leading companies in the CNS / ATM sector, airlines and members of academies and universities. In
In April, IACIT participated in the 18th IGWG (International GBAS Working Group), Congress that took place in Atlanta, where it brought together aviation representatives from several countries to address the evolution and improvement of the GBAS system (GroundBased Augmentation System).  Continuing work on this GBAS technology, this Thursday (11/05), IACIT participated in the meeting promoted by DECEA (Air Space Control Department) in order to share the current status of the GBAS project and get to know the perspectives of the organs and companies of the aerial sector. In addition to the
Drone Neutralization As was explained in Part 1 of this article, we will prefer an automatic neutralization mechanism (without the need for a person involved). However, in the area of Drone neutralization, it appears that many solutions in the form of a “Gun” have appeared recently, so it is worth a thorough discussion. Let us use it as a test case, through which we will try to learn how to analyze the performance (efficiency and effectivity) of a neutralizing system, considering as much parameters as possible in our evaluation.    Several companies are offering a “Net Gun”, which is taking
Drone Detection As was explained during Part 1 of this article, we will prefer an automatic detection mechanism. We can distinguish between four (4) different detection technologies / means: Radar RF Receiver Camera Acoustic Sensor Following is a short explanation of each technology, with its advantages and disadvantages: 1. Radar Short description: The Radar transmits RF signals, and detects Drones by analyzing the small change in frequency of the return/reflected signal (echo). The signal reflected from the Drone’s propellers has a special “signature” (behavior), allowing the Radar to “
