Lockheed Martin, the global aerospace and deterrence company, and Indra, a leading global technology and consulting company, have signed a new collaboration agreement to jointly explore areas of cooperation in the land, sea, air and cyber defence domains, as well as in the fields of simulation and sustainment.

  1. Mutually beneficial relationship

The agreement, signed by Ray Piselli, Lockheed Martin's international vice-president, and José Vicente de los Mozos, Indra's CEO, paves the way for the Spanish company's engineers to develop and produce different defence and training systems for Spain and other international markets. 

Mutually beneficial relationship

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Ray Piselli said: "Developing mutually beneficial relationships with Spanish industry is a key objective for our team. This new agreement with Indra will strengthen our long-standing relationship with Spain. It shows that Lockheed Martin is a corporate citizen with a long-term commitment to supporting Spain's security, industry and economy for decades to come".

José Vicente de los Mozos highlighted: "This agreement with Lockheed Martin highlights the value of the cutting-edge technology we develop in Spain in areas such as air defence, radars, electronic defence, cyber defence, simulation or sustainment, as well as our capacity to integrate, manufacture and commercialise systems worldwide. Collaboration in these areas strengthens our position and that of the Spanish industry as a whole".

For more than 20 years, Lockheed Martin has supported the Spanish Navy in its missions by delivering high-capability systems for F-100 frigates, S-80 submarines and MH-60R and SH-60B helicopters.

Lockheed Martin's agreements around the world translate into millions of dollars invested with the international companies that are part of its global supply chain, creating security and prosperity for the nations with which the company works.

To date, through industrial partnerships, Lockheed Martin has brought more than 1 billion dollars of industrial benefits to Spain, with Spanish industry supporting numerous Lockheed Martin programmes around the world.
