GDELS-Santa Bárbara Sistemas and SENER Aeroespacial combine technologies to produce autonomous driving platforms10/06/2021
GDELS- Santa Bárbara Sistemas and SENER Aeroespacial have signed a partnership agreement in order to design and manufacture a series of modular and interoperable systems to produce platforms with autonomous driving capabilities.
These systems will provide remote and autonomous operation capabilities to both newly created and updated land platforms, transforming conventional manned platforms into unmanned platforms.
Autonomous, supervised and aided-driving mobility systems are a clear emerging requirement both within the European Union and NATO.
Although both companies had been collaborating previously, both Santa Bárbara Sistemas and SENER Aeroespacial wanted to sign this agreement to seal their commitment to relying on innovation and technology to provide a common response to a military need recognized by numerous nations.
This is yet another example of Spanish industrial cooperation in defense that is based on technological excellence, and whose purpose is to provide improved systems to our Armed Forces and, at the same time, position itself on the highly competitive international market as a driver of exports for Spain's defense industry.
