The Brazilian Navy Marine Corps (Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais: CFN) plans to implement a new C4ISR suite purchased from Israel’s Elbit Systems, and expects to receive the system in second half on 2018, the navy told Jane’s .
It will be deployed at command sites; by dismounted troops; unarmoured command, communications, logistics support, and electronic warfare trucks; and armoured vehicles serving as a command platform such as the SK 105A2S Kürassier light tank.
The system, called SIC²CFN (Sistema Integrado de Comando e Controle para o CFN) was purchased on 31 March for USD40 million through the London-based Brazilian Naval Commission in Europe (CNBE). The deal includes training and maintenance services.
It is comprised of four main assets: a battle management module, artillery command-and-control module integrating the company’s Combat-NG fire control system, communication module, and electronic warfare module.
