The MoU is signed by Adi Sasongko as Infoglobal CEO and Gita Amperiawan as Director of Commerce, Technology, and Development of PTDI, at Kawasan Produksi II PTDI, Bandung
With the cooperation, N219 aircraft will be developed with special design as Maritime Surveillance Aircraft or MSA. Infoglobal Mission System that has previously installed on NC212 MPA will be developed further to be used on N219 MSA produced by PTDI.
According to Gita Amperiawan, the purpose of the cooperation is to collaborate the national aerospace industry.
