Indra has been appointed by the Spanish government as the national industrial coordinator of the European Future Combat Air System (FCAS) programme, the company announced on 6 September.

Indra will work with the industrial leaders designated by France and Germany (Dassault and Airbus respectively), and the Spanish Ministry of Defense.

Within the framework of the programme’s industrial development plan Indra will work to ensure that Spanish industry participates as actively as possible and facilitate its access to opportunities for knowledge generation, business development, export capacity, and the creation of technologies that can also be used in the civil field and high-value employment generation.

The FCAS will generate high levels of knowledge and added value for Spanish companies and provide them with opportunities to develop exportable products beyond the programme.

For Indra, its designation as the national coordinator represents a significant boost, as it enhances its credibility and increases its competitive capacity and its access to major international programmes.
