Innovative solutions for the defense and security sector


Defense and Security Activity

GMV develops and integrates command and control systems (C4I) that  offer information in real time from the different units (land, air, maritime, or space) and from different sensors, providing command with suitable situational awareness.

GMV is  the preferred supplier of reference command and control systems for artillery and infantry for the Ministry of Defense, and it has been responsible for the maintenance and evolution of the EUCCIS C2 system of the European External Action Service (EEAS) since 2016.


Suite of tools for border surveillance

Integrated fire support coordination and execution

GMV has developed an innovative collection of ISR systems integrated into the SAPIIEM family of products.

SAPIIEM is a program developed by GMV for the Spanish Ministry of Defense, made up of the ATENEA, SEISMO, COLLECTOR and IRIS stations, and the database (CSD).

GMV has also developed the C2NEC command and control system.

GMV develops the system for NATO's NCIA to store and distribute products in the area of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance called CSD (coalition shared data services) Enduring Solution.



JISR product suite, compatible with the NATO interoperability initiatives (STANAG) and NATO doctrine

SISCAP (infantry system) develops technologies to equip soldiers with the resources necessary for effective combat operations.

GMV is responsible for integrating the CIS subsystem and developing the primary soldier computer responsible for the command and control capabilities, connectivity with the devices carried by the combatant, and energy management.

GMV is participating in the leading European infantry projects, such as the EDA’s CEDSS and STASS initiatives and the GOSSRA program funded by the EC.


GMV has solutions that make it possible to leverage the potential of the ICT infrastructures at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels.

GMV is the company responsible for the development of CDTEXP training and exercise, coordination, and support cyberdefense platform for the EDA.


GMV has a full range of high fidelity simulators and emulators for the L3HARRIS WESCAM MX™-Series EO/IR surveillance and targeting systems. These are training/integration capabilities in the family of electro-optical and infrared WESCAM MX cameras, the global leader in features, providing for example, the training required by the camera operator at a fraction of the cost of in-flight training. The emulator systems provide ICD-true hardware and software interfaces that enable development, integration and maintenance activities to be performed without the installation of an actual turret in the integration laboratory or on the vehicle platform.

GMV has developed innovative border surveillance system integration technology for both land and sea borders.

Especially relevant is that within the framework of the European Commission’s European Border Surveillance System, assigned to FRONTEX, GMV was selected to develop, evolve, and maintain the EUROSUR network.

GMV has also supplied the Spanish Civil Guard with control centers for the exterior surveillance system (SIVE) program and the satellite imagery exploitation systems.


Multi-application platform for port management and maritime traffic operations

GMV's solutions and projects include:

  • Maritime surveillance control centers (Socrates).

  • New software applications for the third phase of MARSUR (MARSURIII), a European Defence Agency project dedicated to maritime surveillance, which aims to set up a European network linking existing national systems.

  • GMV has developed the command and control system and network infrastructure for the Integrated Innovation Program for Maritime Rescue (iSAR) of Spain’s Maritime Rescue and Safety Society (SASEMAR). The system enables real-time communication between maritime and airborne resources at sea and land-based coordination centers through its "plug-and-play" network infrastructure.

  • GMV is the prime contractor for the development of the EUROSUR network for FRONTEX, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency.

  • A multi-application platform for port management and maritime traffic operations, Shiplocus®, which makes it possible to monitor and track vessels in real time and improves the optimization of port planning, integration in intermodal transport, management of port calls, operation of marinas, and monitoring and supervision of navigation aids.
  • Vessel detection systems using satellite imagery.

  • DGPS coastal networks.

  • GMV provides a variety of systems for Spanish ports, EMSA, SASEMAR, and the Spanish Navy’s Maritime Action Operations and Surveillance Center.

  • GMV also has a significant presence in the leading European cooperation programs: CLOSEYE (FP 7), EUCISE 2020 (H2020), MARISA (H2020), ANDROMEDA (H2020), and OCEAN2020 (PADR).

Suite of tools for border surveillance

GMV is an integrator of access control, presence, perimeter surveillance, and security systems.

GMV offers an integrated access, presence, and security control system (SCA) designed to control and oversee all access to different zones of multiple centers, allowing workday tracking and providing comprehensive security management.

The systems developed by GMV operate at noteworthy facilities such as the Ministry of Defense, Constitutional Court, on Spanish Navy ships, and in the entire network of MAPFRE buildings and offices.



Our Commitment to R&D

At GMV, we are aware that the only way to respond to the challenges presented by ever changing global threats is to commit firmly to R&D.

Our commitment to R&D has led GMV to become a European benchmark in international cooperation programs in the area of defense and security.
