Abstract


This article is focused on the space sector, mainly due to the devices developed and marketed that require high investments in research, development and technological innovation, supported by a permanent need to meet the standard requirement to guarantee their effectiveness, among all the correct certification. In such scenario, this article has examined, highlighting technological innovation, which are the context and elements involved in the certification of the Vehicle Survey Booster – 30 (VSB-30). The research is characterized as a case study, conducted in the first semester of 2011, and it consisted of reviewing the literature on technological innovation and certification as well as information available in various reports, some of which were public, and interviews. The article presents a brief description of the development of the VSB-30, its importance to the market and the relevant aspects of the certification and the Certification Body of Brazil. The conclusion is that the certification is a contribution to technological innovation for it provides benefits in process improvement, especially regarding the question of documentation, creating conditions for the industry to adapt to formal established and qualified processes and, in return, to become restricted to trade companies unable to adjust to these requirements.
