With steady pace to Le Bourget

We are practically in the half-way point of the year fulfilling with a firm step the strategic line that marks the course of our team, that is none other than to continue driving the R&D in the aerospace sector, for its real application in the industry, and to help our business to increase its technological competitiveness that is so important in a global market, like aviation is. In these months we have started new projects of national and international state-of-the-art, we have worked with companies to move forward in the improvement of its technological innovation, we have participated in conferences and meetings with companies and organizations in the sector and we have even supported administrations to help diagnose and define strategic plans for the development of the aerospace industry and the economy for the next few years.

With this good work, and backed by our trajectory in the last decade, FADA-CATEC is attended Paris Air Show Le Bourget, the largest aerospace world meeting in which big companies, contractors and agents involved in the development of new technologies in this field meet together in just a few days. And we have participated in the Andalusian official delegation that travelled to the neighbouring country in order to bring value to the evolution and growth of our industry, but also to project the great potential for the future.

As we have been doing in recent years, we went to Le Bourget with the aim of presenting our latest technologies, services and advances in R&D for the sector, to strengthen our ties with the companies and assisting organizations (partners or potentials), as well as to detect and analyze opportunities for technological collaboration that they can capture in new projects for our team, but also involving the participation of Andalusian and Spanish companies.

The work and cooperation between research institutes and companies continues to be fundamental in order to contribute greater added value to our products and services, and that is why we must not neglect to take advantage of this type of events in order to reinforce our position as a point of reference in the international aerospace outlook, and, above all, continue to be the driving force.

CATEC and ATLAS, the best service for flights and tests with aircraft and unmanned systems
Our Centre offers to companies, organizations and individuals linked to the sector of unmanned aircraft and airborne systems (UAS/RPAS) a wide range of services so that they can develop flight operations and validation tests of these aircraft in the ATLAS Experimental Flight Center facilities located in Villacarrillo (Jaen).

Thus, from our Avionics and Systems Department and the ATLAS Center itself, we complete the preparation of documentation that contains the necessary information to fulfill the prerequisites for the operation in the UAS/RPAS required to comply with the guidelines of the airline regulations today. This documentation includes:

• Characterization of the aircraft
• The aeronautical study of safety of the operation or operations
• The technical management of the permits for the execution of the pre-flight test flights and a document certifying their completion
• The preparation of the operations manual and the maintenance program for any type of aircraft (fixed wing, rotary wing, multirotor)
• Technical assistance in the execution of the test flights required to demonstrate that the operations to be carried out can be done so safely
• Advice in obtaining insurance or in the preparation and management of any supplementary information

In addition, the ATLAS Center makes available its facilities of excellence to develop this type of flights and tests, between runways and take-off (main and auxiliary), a building that houses the control tower and radar to monitor air operations, and two hangars for parking and maintenance of aircraft. It also has a reserve of segregated airspace of more than 1,000 km2, and a climate with more than 300 days of sunshine per year, making it a unique space in Europe for UAS / RPAS operations.

If you want to know more in details about these services, you can contact us through the mail info@atlascenter.aero.
