“This Memorandum of Understanding signifies Raytheon’s commitment to establish a strategic partner in Sener, whose collaboration will support the delivery of key air and missile defense capabilities to Spain and NATO,” said Pete Bata, Vice President of Global Patriot programs for Raytheon, an RTX business. “And through this partnership, Sener has the opportunity to become part of the Global Patriot supply chain, supporting a network of customers who have chosen Patriot as the backbone of their air defense.”
Rafael Orbe, the Defense General Director at Sener, said: “this agreement reinforces Sener as international Centre of Excelence for the design and manufacturing of Control and Actuation Systems (CAS) for missiles.
