In the field of the Ministry of Defense, the implementation of the policy and planning of research, development and innovation (R + D + i), it has been carried out by two independent bodies, with a differential configuration in relation to purposes and also two administrative units integrated into the structure of that department. Indeed, on the one hand, the National Institute for Aerospace Technology "Esteban Terradas" (INTA), which is an autonomous agency attached to the Ministry of Defense and also holds the consideration of public research body (IPO) of the General State administration, in accordance with Article 47 of Law 14/2011, of 1 June, of the Science, Technology and Innovation, and the autonomous body Hydrodynamic Experiments Canal El Pardo (CEHIPAR) , which is attached to the ministry, but through the Directorate General of Armament and Material (DGAM); on the other hand, the Technological Institute "The Marañosa" (ITM), which depends on the said Directorate General, and the Laboratory of Engineers' General Marvá "(LABINGE), Army reports directly to the Directorate General of Infrastructure.

The aforementioned INTA was founded in 1942 and specializes in aerospace research and technological development, while the CEHIPAR, erected in 1933, focuses on hydrodynamics research to contribute to the progress of technology Spanish naval.

Meanwhile, the ITM, created in 2006, after a process of integration of six technology centers referred DGAM, some of them with more than a century old, has important technological areas for compliance the missions entrusted to counseling, testing, testing, testing and technological observations, technical project management research and development on issues of weapons, materials and equipment, and LABINGE, dating from 1897, provides technical support to the ministry in everything related, among other aspects, infrastructure, materials used in construction and military works.

Notwithstanding the INTA, as OPI specializes in aerospace research and technological development, has been performing the functions attributed the Law 13/1986, of 14 April, Promotion and General Coordination of Scientific Research and technique, and then the aforementioned Law 14/2011, of June 1, the purpose of all these centers was the implementation of activities that should give answer to the technological needs of the defense, present and future, in experimentation, in R + D + i, and maintenance of technological knowledge. In addition, its excess capacity have been devoting to support industrial agents and R & D + i, in dual technologies.

The reasons for claiming a need for rationalization were diverse, and emanating ultimately, the fact that these centers were established to serve different beneficiaries under different criteria. The result of all this was necessary to correct existing deficiencies and duplications and adapt its organization and structure.

On the other hand, in the process of rationalization of the structures of the General State Administration, conducted by the Government, in order to achieve better and more effective management of administrative agencies, and the reduction in this field of public expenditure, the Commission for the Reform of public Administration (CORA), established by agreement of the Council of Ministers of 26 October 2012, has produced studies in relation to the bodies and existing public bodies, assessing whether they meet the criteria which should justify their individualized existence of entities with legal personality.

As a result of this analysis CORA raised by the Council of Ministers on June 21, 2013 report, among other proposed measures it included the integration of the autonomous body INTA CEHIPAR.


Result of the above Article 2 of Law 15/2014, of September 16, streamlining the public sector and other measures of administrative reform, has come to pass integration at INTA, the autonomous body CEHIPAR, the ITM and LABINGE, stating in paragraph 2 that the INTA, as OPI, continue to carry out scientific and technical research, as well as technological services, and is specialized in research and technological development, dual character, in aerospace fields of aeronautics, hydrodynamics, and technologies of defense and security; It shall also be subrogated to the functions and the ownership of rights and obligations and all kinds of legal relations that correspond to them.

Through this integration puts an end to the existing dispersion between different agencies and research centers of the Ministry of Defence.

INTA, which, as previously stated, OPI retains the status of the General State Administration, in accordance with the aforementioned Law 14/2011, of June 1, and 15/2014, of September 16 , will aim at the implementation of activities of scientific and technical research, as well as technological services in the framework of the priorities of the aforementioned Law 14/2011, of June 1, the state plan of scientific and technical research and state plan for innovation, and the framework of the European Union programs, in line with the needs that might be required by the Ministry of Defence to meet the demands of national defense, but without this payment for other services are excluded in the scope of their functions and powers with corporations, entities or public, national, foreign or supranational bodies, which, in turn, will be capable and increase, more coordinated and more broadly fields of activity, participation of industry, university and national technology centers, according to the objectives of the said Law 14/2011, of June 1. In addition, greater efficiency in resource optimization, will make an important contribution to the Ministry of Defence to the knowledge society and the Spanish industrial and technological fabric.

This integration will be the appropriate channel to join efforts in management and also allow concentrate all implementation activities R & D + i MoD in a single institute, which entitles him to deploy their research, development and innovation, as well as technological services, promotion and dissemination of knowledge in the various fields of competence, through the facilities of the three technological scientific campus that have and will be based in Torrejon de Ardoz, El Pardo, and San Martin de la Vega, in the Autonomous Community of Madrid. In each of these three campuses different technology departments have to carry out the execution of the activities to deploy the body and have organic and functional dependence of the respective general subdirectorates be located. In addition, it will feature various scientific and technical centers distributed by the Spanish geography facilities.

The result of this integration is an organism, which allows simplification of administrative tasks, resulting from the merger of management units, the most efficient use of resources and economies of scale involved. Furthermore, it gives that body the capacity to generate resources, being consistent with the policy of financial sustainability and the public interest derived from strict compliance with the principles of effectiveness, efficiency, economy, sufficiency, adequacy of means to institutional purposes, rationalization and agility of administrative procedures for the best performance of the functions in the development of the activity entrusted to it.
