Embraer has delivered its fifth EMB 145 AEW&C aircraft, upgraded and designated as E-99M to the Brazilian Air Force. The aircraft has been updated to perform Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) functions, as well as participate in intelligence, surveillance, and airborne reconnaissance missions.

"The delivery of the fifth E-99 is an important milestone for the E-99M project. This is the first aircraft delivered in FOC (Full Operational Capability) configuration, with systems fully certified for use by the Brazilian Air Force for protecting the country and its national sovereignty," says Bosco da Costa Junior, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security. The executive further states, "The four aircraft previously delivered will be upgraded so that they can fully perform all the missions for which they were designed."
