Lockheed Martin, the global aerospace and deterrence company, and Indra, one of the leading global technology and consulting companies, have signed a new collaboration agreement to jointly explore areas of co-operation in the air, land, sea and cyberdefence sectors, as well as in simulation and sustainment.

The agreement, signed by Ray Piselli, vice president International, Lockheed Martin and José Vicente de los Mozos, chief executive officer Indra, paves the way for engineers at the Spanish company to develop and manufacture defence and training systems for Spain and other world markets. 

Speaking at the signing event, Ray Piselli said: “Developing mutually beneficial relationships with Spanish industry is a key focus for our team. This new agreement with Indra will strengthen our enduring relationship with Spain. It shows Lockheed Martin is a corporate citizen that is here for the long-term to support Spanish security, its industry, and the national economy for decades to come.”

“Indra must play a leading role in the transformation the defence industry needs, and this agreement will contribute substantially to this purpose, making the industry more competitive and providing it with greater capabilities for the challenges ahead,” said Indra chairman Marc Murtra.

José Vicente de los Mozos added: “This agreement with Lockheed Martin highlights the value of the cutting-edge technology we're developing in Spain in areas such as air defence, radars, electronic defence, cyberdefence, simulation and sustainment, as well as our capacity to integrate, manufacture and market 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 through delivering highly capable systems for F-100 frigates, S-80 submarines, MH-60R and SH-60B helicopters.

Lockheed Martin’s partnerships across the world result in millions of dollars being invested with the international companies that are part of its global supply chain, creating security and prosperity for nations the company works with.

To date, through industrial partnerships, Lockheed Martin has delivered more than $1 billion of industrial benefits to Spain, with Spanish industry supporting a number of Lockheed Martin programmes around the world.
