EU: ”Indra, One of the Main Partners of Ocean2020, the First Major Project Financed with the New European Defense Fund”

MADRID — The European consortium Ocean2020, in which Indra is one of the main partners, has landed a contract worth €36 million for the largest defense R&D initiative to date backed by the European Union’s new European Defense Fund.

Conceived for research in technologies that reinforce situational awareness in extensive naval environments, the project is part of the EU’s Preparatory Action on Defense Research (PADR), which will lay the foundation for a much more ambitious future R&D program running from 2021 to 2027.

The Ocean2020 consortium is led by Leonardo with the participation of 42 partners from 15 Member States, including large companies, SMEs, universities, research centers and defense ministries in their roles as end users.

Rusland: ”Rosoboronexport: Russia to focus on “small and ultra-small submarine” exports”

Russia’s defense industry agency Rosoboronexport will work with the country’s largest shipbuilding company in 2018 to boost worldwide export prospects for what the agency termed as small and ultra-small submarines.

Rosoboronexport said this focus was in response to a growing interest for these vessels in the countries of Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

The agency’s lead industry partner will be the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

“The Russian shipbuilding industry and the Russian Navy have significant experience in their development and operation, which gives us reason to count on the successful promotion of such boats to the world market. According to preliminary estimates, the capacity of this segment of the arms market for the next five years is about $4 billion,” Igor Sevastyanov, deputy general director of Rosoboronexport, said.
