The industrial sector of the state of Santa Catarina is on the radar of the Brazilian Armed Forces. Recognized for its diversity and high competence, it has drawn the attention of military leaders for its great potential to contribute to new projects. In this sense, COMDEFESA - Defense Industry Committee of Santa Catarina was formed within the Federation of Industries of the State of Santa Catarina - FIESC, in which Rodrigues Koller Legal Solucions has active participation.

We highlight some ongoing projects:


  1. PROSUB - Submarine Development Program, a project with a total investment of 6.7 billion euros, involving the development and production of four conventional submarines, the construction of the Nuclear Propulsion Submarine, the purchase of torpedoes and screeners, design and construction. a shipyard and a naval base in the municipality of Itaguaí (RJ), in addition to technology transfer and offset;

  2. SISFRON - Integrated Border Monitoring System, a project whose purpose is to implement and integrate the sensing system, decision support and support the integrated operational performance of various defense agents in the country's land borders, is budgeted. R$ 839,664,954.32, being the contract holder the Tepro consortium formed by the companies Savis Tecnologia e Sistemas S/A and OrbiSat Indústria e Aerolevantamento S/A, controlled by Embraer Defense and Security;
