AEROSPACE COOPERATION: FIRST MEETING AMONG ARGENTINE AND US COMPTIA MEMBER COMPANIES 🇦🇷️🇺🇸

We held the first virtual meeting among Argentine companies and U.S. CompTIA - The Computing Technology Industry Association-Sec (Space Enterprise Council) members from the aerospace industry. Held within the MOU framework signed the past July, the meeting aimed to facilitate the exchange, cooperation, and mapping of commercial opportunities among both countries' industries.

Argentina and U.S. aerospace industry have a longstanding development and a robust collection of cumulative technology knowledge, characterized by its high complexity and capital intensive. The industrial complex has many spills over different areas of the economy. Its applications have a strong social impact that improves the quality of life of the population.

This first meeting is the first step of a new chapter of cooperation and commercial exchange among Argentina and the U.S. Thank you CONAE (oficial) Veng SA INVAP Arsultra DTA-SA y CARAE Satellogic for participating in this initiative.
