original article translated from https://www.mar.mil.br/peamb.html The National Defense Strategy (END), formulated in 2008, was organized around three main structuring. The first concerns the organization and orientation of the military to better fulfill their constitutional and their duties in peace and war. The second refers to the reorganization of the domestic defense equipment to ensure that the care needs of the military equipment to support technology in the national domain. The third deals with the composition of the troops of the Armed Forces and the future of the Draft. Regarding the first measure, was given to the armed forces drawing up their plans for Articulation and equipment, which should include a proposal for a spatial distribution of military installations and quantifying the resources needed to care effectively Chance of Employment. Furthermore, should review, from a policy of optimizing the use of human resources, the composition of the troops in order to scale them to adequately meet the requirements of NDT. As a result, the Command of the Navy has established a "Joint Plan and Equipment of the Navy of Brazil (PEAMB), establishing projects and goals for the modernization, expansion and relocation of its Military Organizations (OM), and increasing training and their effective, depending on their mission. CARE OF THE END OF THE GUIDELINES In preparing PEAMB, aimed to get all the actions to be implemented to provide the MB military organizations, naval, naval air and marines, systems, weapons, ammunition and effective staff required to meet the guidelines established in the END. Whereas the task of "denying the use of the sea to the enemy" should guide, predominantly in the strategy for maritime defense of the country, the Navy will continue the construction of conventional submarines and the development project of nuclear-powered submarine, and build a base and a Shipyard in Itaguaí (RJ), in order to build and support for its submarines. Furthermore, based on the premise that force should be organized under the auspices of the trinomial monitoring / control, mobility and presence, the Navy will expand the Management System of the Amazon Blue (SisGAAz), including aircraft, fixed speed cameras and unmanned aerial unmanned (UAV), and modernize its military communications capabilities. To ensure greater action in the vicinity of the mouth of the Amazon River Basin in the Amazon and Paraguay-Paraná and greater control of the coastal strip between Santos (SP) and Vitoria (ES), will deploy a 2nd Squadron and the 2nd Amphibious Division in the Region N / NE of the country, expand or create new OM Operating System, Maritime Traffic Safety (SSTA) and logistical support, which will be strategically distributed throughout the country, and renew its fleet by obtaining naval, naval air and Marine resources. In pursuing these steps, you are also ensuring increased its capacity to render force of peacekeepers, to carry out humanitarian actions and rescue non-combatants abroad, of carrying out search and rescue (SAR) and to contribute to ensuring law and order. Given the need to review, from a policy of optimizing the use of human resources, the actual composition of the three forces, so scaling them to adequately meet the requirements of END, the MB will enhance their ability to raise , training of human resources through the expansion, modernization and construction of new schools and Education Centers. In addition, improve the care of the Naval Family, providing a high level of job satisfaction of its people, through the construction of National Equity Residential (PNR) and the expansion, modernization and construction of hospitals and centers of Integrated Care System. The establishment of the set of actions and their physical and financial targets was not conditioned on questions of budget and training of the industrial park - home and abroad. In studies on the design, we tried to meet the strategic needs of the Navy, to make it able to protect the interests of the country Highlights mention that is not included in the Plan project to equip the strength of the space itself, given that the need for satellite coverage, both for monitoring / control and communications must be integrated and formulated by the Ministry of Defense, because it involves the three Armed Forces. It was thought in a Navy believable, making it clear to potential opponents of our ability to overcome the opposing forces. ORGANIZATION PEAMB The PEAMB is divided into two volumes, as specified below: Volume I - Equipment and Articulation Understands the PEAMB itself, divided into three distinct parts. Parts I and II show, in summary form, all Individualized Projects (IP) necessary for the adequacy of MB to the END. Part III deals with the necessary changes in the composition of the troops of the MB, to cope with the demand of personnel due to the implementation of the plan contained in the two previous parts: Part I - Equipment; Part II - Relationship, and Part III - Human Resources. In order to facilitate understanding, Projects, Part I - Equipment - are grouped into five broad and organized into chapters, a total of 72 Individualized Projects: Chapter 1 - Media Corps; Chapter 2 - aviation resources; Chapter 3 - Means of Marines; Chapter 4 - Ammunition, and Chapter 5 - Dry System for Maritime Traffic Safety (SSTA) and Support Vessels. Similarly, Part II - Relationship - is organized into the following chapters, a total of 138 Individualized Projects: Chapter 1 - Naval Complex Precinct 2 / 2 Amphibious Division; Chapter 2 - Marine Corps Forces, Forces District Directors and Support; Chapter 3 - Logistics Support; Chapter 4 - Management System of the Amazon Blue (SisGAAz) Military and Communications; Chapter 5 - Organs of the Education System Naval Support of Health and Welfare and National Equity Residential (PNR), and Chapter 6 - System Security Maritime Traffic. In turn, in Part III - Human Resources - the personal matter is subdivided into chapters which are presented the actions to be implemented to meet the needs imposed by the Joint Equipment and detailed in Parts I and II, respectively: Chapter 1 - Military Personnel; Chapter 2 - Civilian Personnel; Chapter 3 - Training, and Chapter 4 - Costing. Chapter 1 includes measures related to the military, which detailed the actions of adequacy of manpower, procurement, training and selection. Chapter 2 identifies the measures relating to civil servants, and also described the actions of the adequacy and effective production. Chapter 3 describes the actions to be developed for training of staff and by the academia, focused on the domain knowledge of areas of defense. Chapter 4 details the reflections in the budget plan. Annexes to Volume I are the "Statement of Costs" with the summary of the resources needed for each IP (Annex A), intended to "Breakdown of naval, aircraft and Marines" for the various agencies operating in Navy (Annex B) and the "Priorities for Individualized Service Projects" (Annex C). Volume II - Detailed This volume presents the details of the internal actions of each of the projects listed in the Individualized Parts I and II of Volume I. Is divided into two parts, whose chapters keep homonomia with the corresponding Volume I. Part I - Equipment, for each type of entity to be acquired or upgraded are detailed in the concept of employment and the strategic rationale of the medium, quantitative history and current status of inventory, a summary of low planning, modernization and procurement, budget data and schedule of physical targets. Part II - Relationship to each OM to be established, modernized or expanded are detailed the purpose, location, who commanded the subject, concept of employment, reasons for the design and all the internal actions related to their achievement, with their physical and financial schedule. IMPLEMENTATION PEAMB The deadline for implementation of PEAMB is 2030, divided into short-term actions (2010-2014), medium term (2015-2022) and long-term (2023-2030). Given the complexity and magnitude of the project, to obtain some means to the achievement of the Strategic Quantity Required only be completed after 2030. Likewise, a military career lasts for thirty years. Obtaining all the required effective PEAMB in timeline of twenty years, would create an undesirable distortion in the flow of career. Thus, it is necessary to consider the long-term actions have a duration exceeding the year during 2030. ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL CONSIDERATIONS Notwithstanding the strategic considerations related to national security, worth, too, the imprint of economic and social. Achieving PEAMB unique way to boost the domestic industry. Shipbuilding is considered a basic industry and its increase implies the growth of other segments, with intense reflection in the supply chain of many other fields of economic activity, such as electronics, metallurgy, heavy machinery, marine propulsion engines, weapons and information technology, among others, such is the diversity of equipment on board the warships. The high technology used in the construction and maintenance of ships and the need for self-sufficiency to keep the military operating make the country look for its technological independence in several areas. On the social side, it is estimated to create 30,000 new direct jobs and 100,000 indirect jobs, in addition to opportunities created due to the increase of the actual suit brought by about 70,000 new positions of civilian and military. Such increase will mean the annual generation of significant direct job opportunities, promoting inclusion and improving the training of thousands of citizens coming from different social classes, contributing substantially to the advancement of the country All this represents also an increase in tax revenue of R $ 7.5 billion per year. CURRENT SITUATION Currently, the PEAMB is under consideration by the Ministry of Defense, to form, together with the plans of the other services, the Plan Coordination and equipment of the Armed Forces. South America is going through a time of transition. As it grows its importance in the world, mainly due to their large reserves of oil and gas, its immense biodiversity, both on the continent, and in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and, above all, plenty of drinking water has caused the interest the "United Central" to turn to our region. Today, you can see a movement of "United Central" to create spheres of influence in the region. Russia, in recent years went to Venezuela and try to expand its area of influence also to Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay. The United States maintains strong ties with Colombia and Chile, and try getting closer with Peru. For some time, China attempts a rapprochement with Argentina and Uruguay. Brazil, which has its own vision for the future of the continent, with greater independence for the country, has sought not to enter into any of these areas of influence. Thus, we sought a strategic partnership that would allow the nation to counter this new geopolitics. As a result of this view, the agreement was signed with the French Government. To maintain their autonomy and representation not only in the South American region, as also the rest of the world, the Brazilian government understood the need to maintain armed forces equipped and trained, with sufficient amount of resources to enforce their interests. In this context, the Ministry of Defense asked the Armed Forces, the development of their plans and Networking Equipment (PEA). Each plan should include the needs of media for the coming years and the actions of articulation with the defense industry. The SAP Navy of Brazil, known as PEAMB, presents the need for resources for the next 30 years. Budgeted at about $ 250 billion, is quite ambitious, it presented the MB your needs to face this new context. The PEAMB, envisages the need for 2 aircraft carriers with about 40,000 tons; LHD 4 with about 20,000 tonnes, 30 escort ships, 15 S-BR, 5 BR-SN, in addition to 62 patrol vessels. These figures ambitious aim to end the dangerous power vacuum existing in the South Atlantic The MB is aware of the need to fill the strategic vacuum ostensibly in our theater, because if you do not, surely someone will.
