Spanish MoD signs development protocol for NGWS

17th June 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Spanish MoD on 16 June signed a General Action Protocol with national defence industry partners which establishes the mechanisms needed to protect industrial assets. The involved parties will work on technology demonstrations of the Spanish Next Generation Weapon System (NGWS).

The NGWS will arm the multinational European Future Air Combat System (FCAS) but it will be designed to ensure national sovereignty over the technology developed by the Spanish defence industry.

Angel Olivares, Secretary of State for Defence, said: ‘Spain must have the necessary financing to provide the Armed Forces with sufficient capacities to meet their commitments.’

Representatives from the following companies signed the protocol alongside Olivares: Airbus, GMV, Indra, ITP Aero, Satnus Consortium, SimLab, Sener and Tecnobit – Grupo Oesia.
