Lockheed Martin and Oesia Group sign an industrial cooperation agreement in Spain


  • Companies partner to produce PAC-3 MSE components in Spain


Madrid, April 17, 2024 – Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Grupo Oesía for the future production in Spain of Patriot Advanced Capability – 3 (PAC-3) missile segment enhancement components.

The Memorandum of Understanding offers Grupo Oesia the opportunity to manufacture PAC-3 MSE parts for customers all over the world and paves the way for Spain to join the worldwide community of PAC-3 users.

After a successful transfer of know-how and assistance, Grupo Oesía will manufacture highly specialized PAC-3 MSE electronic cables and harnesses for the PAC-3 MSE global supply chain.

“Our collaboration with Grupo Oesía will bring critical industrial competencies to Spain, boosting its Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) capabilities against growing threats,” said Brenda Davidson, vice president of PAC-3 Programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “We look forward to collaborating with the Spanish industrial base and strengthening our existing relationships.”

The PAC-3 MSE will provide increased capability for Spanish Patriot battalions to defend against tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, advanced threats and aircraft.

Lockheed Martin’s PAC-3 MSE interceptor is an advanced missile interceptor that protects against incoming threats through melee contact, which provides exponentially more kinetic energy on target than can be achieved with blast fragmentation mechanisms. 15 countries have chosen the PAC-3 for air and missile defense capabilities to defend against modern threats.

“This agreement, the first one based on the Strategic Collaboration Framework Agreement signed during the Paris Air Show last year, focuses on new opportunities to participate in new and important national and international technological deterrence programs,” said Héctor Roldán, COO of Grupo Oesía. “This new agreement confirms Lockheed Martin’s satisfaction with our operational performance as a recognized elite supplier.”


Family of SATCOM On The Move (SOTM) terminals for vehicular installation and stable mobile connection

SGoSat is a family of high-tech SOTM (Satellite Comms On The Move) terminals that are installed in a vehicle, providing the ability to target and maintain a stable connection to the satellite when the vehicle is in motion in any type of conditions.

The SGoSat family is composed of versatile terminals, which can be installed on any type of platform: trains and buses, military and/or government vehicles, aircraft, ships, etc. Originally designed for the military sector, SGoSat terminals are extremely reliable and robust, integrating high-performance components that comply with the most stringent environmental and EMI/EMC regulations. The product uses low-profile, high-efficiency antennas and a high-performance positioning and tracking unit, allowing the terminal to be operated anywhere in the world.

In order to meet the diverse needs of its customers, INSTER has developed single band and dual band terminals in X, Ka and Ku frequencies.

The SGoSat family of terminals can also be configured with a wide range of radomes (including ballistic options) to suit customer requirements.
