The Junta de Andalucía, through the Regional Ministry of University, Research and Innovation, is working to turn the community into the first innovative node in defense matters in Spain.

Defense constitutes a key segment of the economy, since it promotes progress and generates business traction, directly or indirectly, in other sectors, while promoting qualified employment and territorial cohesion. For all these reasons, the regional Executive has begun to develop a series of initiatives aimed at reinforcing this line of work. Among them, not only the presence in FEINDEF stands out, but also the elaboration of a knowledge map that will allow the identification of all the actors involved in Andalusia in matters related to Research, Innovation and Technology in the fields of Defense and Security. This action has a clear objective: Connect all the specialized knowledge in this matter with the productive fabric and carry out innovative actions and ideas.

Andalusia is the region of Spain in which this sector is fully developed at three levels: experimental, business and military.

The community has experimental centers, companies, universities and agents of the Andalusian knowledge system, which, together with different military units, make innovation and the defense industry a backbone. In the business sphere, there is an important network established in provinces such as Cádiz, (with Navantia, among other companies), Seville (where Airbus, Santa Bárbara Sistemas or Iturri are among others), Málaga (with MADES or AERTEC) or Granada (where, among others, the Granada Ammunition Factory of the Slovak company MSM GROUP is located). Together with them, the maritime-naval cluster in Cádiz and the Andalucía Aerospace cluster in Seville carry out their work.

Similarly, this business strength is complemented by the prominence of other agents such as experimental centers, including the Center for Experimental Flights of Unmanned Vehicles in Villacarrillo (Jaén), the four centers of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA): the Center for Experimentation of Aerospace Vehicles and Atmospheric Research in Arenosillo (Huelva), the one related to the development work of the Airbus A400 (Seville), the Torregorda Test Center (Cádiz) and the experimentation tests in aircraft certification flight (Granada); which will be joined by CETEDEX in Jaén, soon to be built.

This framework is completed with the location in the region of experimental military units such as Brigade 2035 in Almería and the future Army Logistics Base in Córdoba.
