The signing took place within the framework of FEINDEF, the most important defence and security fair in Spain, and was attended by Luis Furnells, executive chairman of Grupo Oesia, and Jesús Sánchez Bargos, President and CEO of Thales Spain.
The agreement is carried out with the aim of integrating part of the portfolio of products and services of Grupo Oesia and Thales, and thus improve the solutions offered to the customers of both companies in the sectors and technologies of defence, security, aerospace, naval, digital transformation and cybersecurity.
Some of the collaborations already being considered include coordination in the development and commercialisation of avionics systems, secure communications, mission systems, simulation, air defence missile systems, optronics, SATCOM and electronic warfare. The agreement also opens the way for cooperation between the two companies in the joint development of defence equipment and systems, the maintenance of military systems, as well as collaboration in digital transformation and cybersecurity initiatives.
“We are very pleased to sign this collaboration agreement with a reference company such as Thales. With this collaboration agreement we complete and improve our portfolio of products and services, and we will be able to offer our customers even more cutting-edge and competitive solutions,” said Luis Furnells, Executive President of Grupo Oesia.
“This collaboration agreement is excellent news for the Spanish and European defence industry. The cooperation between the two companies will allow us to expand our capabilities and offer highly technological and innovative products and services to compete in an increasingly complex environment, meeting our customers’ expectations,” stressed Jesús Sánchez Bargos, President and CEO of Thales in Spain.
