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.

More than one hundred professionals, researchers and students of the aerospace field gather at the Seminar SINASA 2017
The Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Seville hosted for the twelfth consecutive year the National Seminar of Avionics and Air Navigation Systems (SINASA), which during three days brought together more than 100 professionals, researchers and students of the aerospace sector. The event, which was held from April 19th to the 21st in the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Seville (ETSI), counted again with the sponsorship and support of CATEC, given the great interest that this conference awakens every year, both amongst students of different degrees of engineering, as well as amongst teachers, researchers and entrepreneurs of the sector, which has allowed it to become one of the national conferences organized with greater prestige within the aerospace sector.

The opening ceremony was chaired by the Director of Foreign Affairs of the ETSI, Mª Ángeles Martín Prats (M.A.), and featured the presence of Francisco Sanchez Secure, Director of Manufacturing Engineering and Industrial Innovation of Airbus Defence & Space; and Joaquín Rodríguez Grau, director of FADA-CATEC. The opening ceremony also featured a lecture by George Schmidt, Fellow Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Distinguished Lecturer of AESS and Lecturer in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

As in previous editions, the seminar was developed in order to integrate the knowledge and practical experiences of large companies in the industry, the research teams, public management and universities in the field of avionics and air navigation. In addition, this year students, engineers and professors with their master's degree in air systems piloted remotely provided by the University of Seville, the University of Huelva and INTA, and in collaboration with FADA-CATEC. Also, during the seminar there were oral presentations and posters of the work carried out by students who have excelled in the subjects of avionics and navigation systems, and there was a technology visit to the Center of Experimentation of the National Institute of Aerospace Technology of the Arenosillo in Huelva.
