The Chief of Staff of the Spanish Army, Mr. Francisco Javier Varela Salas, along with the Lieutenant General Chief of the Army Logistic Support Command (MALE), Mr. Fernando Miguel García y García de las Hijas, have visited the Tecnobit - Oesía Group headquarters, located in Valdepeñas, to know first hand the technological capabilities developed by the Spanish industrial and aerospace engineering company, an international reference in innovation in the fields of optronics, simulation and tactical communications.
Among these developments, the ORISON thermal camera and the TGOR software defined radio (SDR), manufactured in the facilities of Tecnobit - Oesía Group, stand out for their state-of-the-art technology. The latter involves an industrial plan that involves different national suppliers distributed in 10 locations and the direct generation of 280 jobs and indirect generation of more than 120 at national level. The main points of impact of the industrial plan are located in Galicia, the Basque Country, Aragon, Catalonia, Madrid, Castilla la Mancha (Valdepeñas), Valencia and Andalusia.
Other important projects that have been presented to the authorities were those of CIFRA and encryption of communications. During the visit to the TGOR Laboratory, the company's advances in the integration of encryption solutions in the TGOR V radio, a differential value contribution of the solution proposed for the VCR 8x8 (Wheeled Combat Vehicle) and SCRT programs, were demonstrated.
During his visit, the executive president of Grupo Oesía, Luis Furnells, has held a meeting with the authorities of the Spanish Army in which the high capacities of the products designed and manufactured in Tecnobit - Grupo Oesía, which are integrated in big national and international Defense projects, such as the VCR 8x8 and the FCAS (Future Air Combat System), have been exposed.
The authorities received detailed information about the possibilities offered by the technological company in the whole life cycle of its products, from their design to their maintenance, including and assuring the associated supply chain and including their manufacturing and certification.
In the case of TGOR radio, this coverage of the whole life cycle includes additionally the capacity to generate different waveforms to support both national and European needs.
Tecnobit - Oesia Group concentrates all the necessary technical capabilities through the possession of the Design Authority and the Transfer of Technology and Production, with the aim of providing National Technological, Operational and Sustainable Sovereignty to our country.
