In good health

We reached the middle of the year and it’s time to take stock of the path of the Andalusian aerospace sector, just after the celebration a few weeks ago of the largest business event in the industry in our country, the Aerospace & Defense Meetings 2018. An event that once again made Seville the epicenter of national and international aerospace industry, attended by the main actors of the sector, both the large tractors as Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, as the main contractors and national and international Tier 1 , with, whom the attending companies could maintain business contacts and explore ways of collaboration or contracts for the future.

The numbers of this fourth edition of ADM Sevilla showed that it is a fully consolidated event, and that, in part, reflect the good health of the aerospace industry in Spain and Andalusia: more than 1,100 professionals from 350 companies from 28 countries attended the fair. In the country, more than 8,000 business meetings were held among the attendees, and some 70 companies and technological infrastructures were visited. In CATEC we witnessed this, contributing to strengthen the ties of technological development that our community has in some of the areas that are called to lead the future of the sector, such as advanced robotics or Industry 4.0.

Beyond these quantitative figures it also should be noted the announcement by the President of Andalusia, Susana Diaz, on the development and implementation in the short term of the new Strategic Plan for the aerospace sector. It will focus on aspects such as innovation, development, research, talent and the competitiveness and productivity of our industry. This new plan it will allow us to take a new leap and face the great challenges of the sector in a global context, that is always difficult and that can generate uncertainties.

After ADM Sevilla, the Andalusian industry is reinforced and sets course for new markets to continue promoting its internationalization, competitiveness and know-how in the sector. The next stop is the Farnborough fair, where I am convinced that our companies will continue advancing in that goal to position and reaffirm ourselves in the top positions of the global aerospace industry.

CATEC attended the international Space Tech Expo Europe 2017, held in Bremen (Germany) from November 19 to 21, where it has participated as part of the technological alliance STAR3, which our Center maintains with the CTA (Aeronautics Technology Center) and TECNALIA.
 
CATEC attended this important event in order to present and promote its services and technological capabilities in the space sector and attract new business opportunities to the industry. It also presented some of the technological milestones developed for the sector, such as the successful production of aerospace components for satellites through the additive manufacturing process (3D printing).
 
STAR3, formerly known as TRISPACE, is an alliance whose main objective is to unite resources and offer a more complete and attractive technological and service capacity, which allows generating and developing new business opportunities for the Space industry in Europe and the international arena, through applied research.  

It is the first and only alliance that is promoted in this field in Spain and aims to promote the strengthening and improvement of the coordination of innovation capabilities in materials, manufacturing processes, systems and testing for the space sector. It also seeks to stimulate technology transfer towards uses in other industrial sectors, and, ultimately, to reinforce the positioning and innovative capacity of the Spanish space industry.
