O Sistema de Defesa Aeroespacial Brasileiro e a Estratégia Nacional de Defesa
AbstractThe article analyzes the changes that occurred within the Brazilian Aerospace Defense System (SISDABRA), with a view to the National Defense Policies and National Defense Strategies in the period 2008-2020. The 2008 National Defense Strategy established changes in the Armed Forces, taking into account the Brazilian Aerospace Defense Command (COMDABRA), in charge of leading and integrating surveillance and communications equipment and means for airspace control. That vision resulted in changes in the Air Force, but not in the way visualized by this document in 2008, since, in the originally implemented structure, there are two systems working together: sisdabra and the Brazilian Airspace Control System (SISCEAB). Both systems were kept with their original concepts: SISCEAB is the infrastructure manager and the aerospace command is currently responsible for aerospace defense. Bibliographic and documentary research techniques were used, having as theoretical reference the general theory of systems and those dealing with the concepts of security and defense, due to the integration of air defense with traffic control. The reorganization of the Air Force did not take place as foreseen in the 2008 National Defense Strategy, despite the fact that the reorganization of the Armed Forces was one of the objectives of this document.
