Artillery Saturation Rocket System - ASTROS II

The ASTROS II is today the world's most complete Artillery Saturation Rocket System, and with the hightest degree of operational employment flexibility. The ASTROS II system has been proved in combat and it has been increasingly adopted by armies in several countries. ASTROS II features also enable the system to be employed in Littoral Warface operations with extraordinary success.

The ASTROS II was developed to present a long life span through the constant introduction of new technology modules, especially on its ammunitions and even on its launcher platforms. One of such new technology modules for the ASTROS II System is the TM (Tactical Missile), with a range of up to 300 kilometers.

DEFENCE - Rockets & Missiles

Based on its extensive experience with the SBAT 70 (Air-to-Ground Brazilian System) AVIBRAS developed and started to produce and export to its clients the most advanced 70mm rocket system, the SKYFIRE, a high performance air-to-ground rocket system for employment in any type of combat aircraft or helicopter. The SKYFIRE presents superior characteristics when compared to the conventional 70mm systems, specially due to its longer standoff range (resulting in a higher aircraft survivability rate), and better accuracy.

The SKYFIRE system has three options of rocket-motors, for different ranges, with several different types of warheads. The SKYFIRE can also be employed as area saturation artillery rockets, for ranges up to 12 kilometers, or a sub caliber ammunition for the ASTORS II SYSTEM for training purpose.

In testing stage, the new generation FOG-MPM (Fiber Optics Guided Multi Purpose Missile), uses fiber optics to permit the operator, from a non line of sight of the enemy, to guide the missile to the acquisition and desctruction of the target. The use of fiber optics for guidance also makes the missile immune to enemy ECM (Electronic Counter Measures). With the present range of up to 20 kilometers, and a possibility to be further extended to over 100 kilometers, the FOG-MPM may also to be employed as an additional ammunition for the ASTROS II System. Today its employment is against tanks, helicopters and fortifications.

DEFENCE - Armored Vehicles

The AV-VBL (AVIBRAS Armoured Vehicle) is a new member in the AVIBRAS's ever-growing family of military vehicles. Based on a UNIMOG 4x4 off-road platform, the AV-VBL is a 7- to 12-ton multitask armoured vehicle. The AV-VBL shows excellent performance in cross-country, desert, sand or mud, as well as under extreme environmental conditions. Internal space is the best in its class, and its modular approach allows the vehicle to be configured to perform multiple tasks such as support, police patrol, ambulance, and C4IR (command, control, computer, intelligence and surveillance). The AV-VBL can be easily transported by C-130 cargo aircraft. TheAV-VBLis the standard platform for the support and C4I vehicles of the renowned AVIBRAS ASTROS II System.
