Thales has renewed its partnership agreement with Colombia’s Cotecmar to cooperate on capabilities for the Colombian defence industry.

The deal, which continues a partnership originally established in 2015, will see the companies work together to evaluate new opportunities in the naval sector, including combat systems, command and control capabilities, communication and information systems, sonars and radars.

Cotecmar leads a number of scientific and technological development projects for the Colombian Navy. Working with Thales and the company’s naval equipment, systems and services portfolio, will allow the companies to develop requirements for the Colombian Navy and the wider Latin American market.

Jorge Enrique Carreño Moreno, Cotecmar, said: ‘This partnership with Thales is a great opportunity to reinforce the support to the Colombian Navy, promoting the development of new projects. Our mission, as a science and technology corporation, is to transfer knowledge in the offer of value represented and deliver high impact solutions to serve the country and the region.’
