Cobham do Brazil wins first major contract
Cobham’s Brazilian subsidiary has secured its first major contract in Brazil, to equip State Police helicopters with High Definition (HD) video surveillance downlinks which will be used on helicopters in 12 cities during the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
This procurement was made through the newly formed Extraordinary Secretariat for Security at Large Scale Events (SESGE), following a UKTI sponsored handover post the London Olympic Games 2012.
The solution transmits HD quality video that is sharper and clearer than ordinary standard definition, over long distances ensuring critical live operational information is available to keep cities safe.
David Ashton, VP Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance said “This is an exciting development for Cobham’s Brazilian business, following the opening of our office in Sao Paulo last year. We are proud to be working with our partner in Brazil on this important contract to provide enhanced surveillance capabilities for the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 World Cup, which are events that will be seen around the globe.”
