What is it?

The SIRIUS Program is the Aeronautics Command’s (COMAER) instrument aimed at the evolution of the Brazilian Airspace Control System (SISCEAB), in response to the demands arising from the growth and increase in the diversity of air traffic foreseen for the coming decades and the technological evolutions in the field of aviation.

Using high-tech solutions, innovative operating procedures, and emphasis on continuously improving the performance of human resources, the Program has allowed Brazilian society to enjoy an agile, safe, environmentally sustainable, and high-performance air traffic system, compliant with world’s interoperability levels, as well as to provide an infrastructure that meets our airspace defense needs.

Conducted by the Department of Airspace Control (DECEA), SIRIUS has ensured a continuous elevation of Operational Safety levels and the capacity to Defend, Control, and Integrate the airspace covering the 22 million km² area under the Brazilian jurisdiction.


SISCEAB safety indexes improvement.

Cost reduction for aircraft operators.

Improvement of airspace control infrastructure.

Increased capacity to access and use airspace.

Increased efficiency in the management of air navigation resources.

Reduction in emissions of harmful gases into the atmosphere.

Better service to airspace users under the jurisdiction of Brazil.
