Brazilian planemaker Embraer and the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) signed an agreement on Tuesday for the future development of defense and dual-use products and services in the air, maritime, land, and space domains. The memorandum of understanding also includes joint research, technology development, and innovation processes.

The Brazilian giant said the agreement aims to extend and deepen long-term commercial relations between both parties for the research and development of key defense technologies, which can be applied to existing Embraer platforms or new aircraft and systems.

“We see a great synergy between TNO and Embraer, related to the complementary experience of our company in defense and security,” wrote Jackson Schneider, CEO of Embraer Defense & Security, in a statement to the press.
