Embraer to focus investment in disruptive technologies with new division

Embraer is to invest in a new division to develop disruptive technologies to ensure its leading place in the industry.

The aircraft manufacturer is set to expand its Embraer X division by developing new technologies such as innovations based on automation.

Embraer X was established a year ago and teams in Boston and Silicon Valley in California are working on a number of innovative concepts, some of which were unveiled at a recent Uber Elevate summit.

The French company unveiled a number of eVTOL concept vehicles it is currently developing, marking a shift into investment in disruptive technologies that are currently a large part of the technology landscape in the world.

Embraer stated it is embracing automation and electric power as trends as it looks towards the future of its innovation as a leading aircraft manufacturer.
