The Brazilian Marine Corps (Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais) is implementing its ambitious C4ISR system, the SIC2CFN (Sistema Integrado de Comando e Controle para o CFN), which was purchased from Elbit Systems via a USD40 million contract on 31 March 2017.
The Marines Material Command is responsible for the system and received initial components in August 2018. It is seeking full implementation by October 2019.
