Oesía Group, a Spanish multinational industrial and digital engineering company and Indra, one of the leading global technology and consulting companies, have signed a strategic collaboration agreement by which they add key technological capabilities to improve the global offer of new generation systems and services for the Spanish armed forces and security forces, thereby strengthening national sovereignty while improving the positioning of both companies in the international market and European programs.
The signing took place on Tuesday, July 18, 2023 at the Teatro Real and was attended by José Vicente de los Mozos, Indra's CEO, and Luis Furnells, Executive Chairman of Oesía Group. The agreement encompasses the development of new systems and services related to command and control systems (C4I), air defence radars, electronic warfare, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and target acquisition systems (ISR and ISTAR), as well as on-board electronics.
Indra's CEO, José Vicente de los Mozos said that "by entering into this agreement with Oesía Group, a national and international benchmark in key capabilities based on hyper-specialization and disruptive technologies, we continue adding up national defence companies capabilities and take a new step forward in our agenda of traction in the industry. This transformation of the Spanish industry favors its competitiveness in the international ecosystem, fosters autonomy in the development of strategic technologies for our armed forces and results in a better positioning of the Spanish brand".
Luis Furnells believes that "this agreement ratifies our commitment to innovation, specialization and loyal collaboration of the Spanish industry. We are very proud to sign an agreement of this magnitude with Indra, which, since the new management team took over, has been working and forging loyal collaboration environments with a view to becoming a great driver of our industry. This agreement allows us to jointly and collaboratively advance and improve dual technologies and innovative and disruptive solutions."
The collaboration model between both parties will be based on principles such as technological specialization, complementarity, trust to offer the best products and solutions, cooperation, generation of technological capabilities, investments in disruptive technologies and the commitment to follow the investment plan linked to the capabilities and technologies that are the purpose of the collaboration, among others.
As the first Specific Agreement they have decided to work on photonic technology for electronic warfare. Photonics is a technology that affects a range of operating environments, significantly improving performance in terms of efficiency and effectiveness alike. Both organizations strive to generate high value-added solutions for clients in the domestic market with a view to improving their position in national and international programs and compete by providing differential and disruptive high-performance technology (photonics).
