About Us

IACIT was founded in 1986 and is now a world-renowned Brazilian company headquartered in the city of São José dos Campos, a crucial technological hub for the aerospace industry in Brazil, and a reference for professional quality in all of Latin America and beyond.

We provide a rich expertise in numerous technological fields, most notably in the areas of Air Traffic Control, NavAid (Navigation Aids), Defense and Public Security, Meteorology, and many, many others.

Proudly certified as a Strategic Defense Company (EED), IACIT is globally recognised for its vast scientific knowledge, its cutting-edge technological development, and its extensive array of state-of-the-art products and systems. But we are not satisfied. Instead, we are constantly driven by an ambition to not only be among the top companies in Brazil, but rather dominate our market through diligence, determination, and a desire to take our company and its products to the next level.  

Company milestones

From our inception in 1986, our primary focus was on providing exemplary engineering services - such as installation, maintenance, and turnkey supply for electronic systems - to airports and many other telecommunication servers.

In 2008, the company made many impressive advances, including the implementation of our Research, Development & Innovation Department (R&D); the construction of our own first factory unit; and the modernization of our Weather Radar project.

During the following successful years, the company actively worked on modernizing pre-existing equipment and developing inventive technologies, including the DME 0200, Weather Radars, and the RouteCAST and NeuralCAST air navigation software.

In 2012, IACIT was the honoured recipient of the esteemed Finep Innovation Award (Prêmio Finep de Inovação) in the ‘National Innovative Medium Company’ category, and in the following year, we were officially certified as EED.

A year later, we initiated the First OTH (Over The Horizon) Radar development project in South America. In 2016, after five years of development, we successfully finished our Ocean Radar project - a project which has both military and civil application, such as the mapping of ocean currents, the detection of environmental dangers, (tornadoes and tsunamis, for example), and the prediction of natural disasters. The radar also plays an essential role for coastal surveillance.

In 2016, we developed and produced the DRONEBlocker for the Brazilian Army, a robust and innovative system which was used to great effect in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The following year, we finally launched the OTH Radar, and it immediately received impressive maritime surveillance results.

In 2017, the highlight of our continued professional success was the implementation of the DME/DME navigation for the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) in Brazil by utilizing DME 0200, a radio navigation system certified by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization). A year later, we started the production of SGTAN (Integrated System for Management of Air Navigation Rates), also for FAB.

In 2019, we were delighted to officially obtain the CMMI level 3 version 2.0 certification - an international award that recognises the highest levels of corporate improvement and the integration of various new models and disciplines into a pre-existing system of internal processes. 

In 2020, we expanded our physical facilities to great success. This expansion tripled the total physical area of the company and increased our productive capacity to execute new projects. In addition, we are now able to house under one roof the manufacturing unit, our administrative area, and numerous R&D sectors.

But we will not stop there. We continue to be passionately committed to overcoming new challenges, to continue contributing to the worldwide technological evolution.
