Brazilian Army Strategic Programs

21st Century

The Brazilian Army Strategic Programs (PEE) are the great vectors of Brazilian Army transformation, providing new capabilities to it, enabling the fulfillment of its constitutional mission, notably society defense, through the generation of power and the appreciation of the human dimension.

In order to achieve the established objectives, Brazilian Army created Army Projects Office (EPEx), in 2010, whose mission is to manage, supervise and coordinate the Army's Strategic Projects.
