In addition to manufacturing Dragoon vehicles, SDLE has positioned itself as a supplier to the military sector in more than 25 countries for supplying spare parts, maintenance and modernization for many different types of armoured vehicles, including the M-1A1, T-54, T-62, M-60A3, YPR-765, M-113; BMP-1 and BMP-2 and the BMR-600. About to reach 10 years since its founding, the Spanish company has achieved leadership as an independent distributor in the sector, and is an official supplier of NATO and the United Nations.

SDLE will be showing at EDEX its Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for defense and security missions and its anti-drone system, one of the few in the market that has demonstrated its effectiveness and capacity to neutralize UAVs.
