Good forecasts

For the year ended 2018 we are proud of having developed a good job and having achieved new milestones for the Andalusian aerospace and technology sector, but more importantly, it starts a new one, 2019, with the feeling that we have a very promising future ahead. Not only for our center, but for all those who participate in the aeronautical industry and the innovation environment and technological development linked to this sector, which boosts the economy in our community.

In our specific case, new horizons are opened with the participation in new European projects such as SAFEDRONE, DOMUS, RIB-AM or RIMA, all of them linked with the development and application of new technologies of unmanned systems (drones) for their integration in airspace or implementation of new advanced manufacturing systems (such as 3D printing) for the aerospace industry. Also with the organization of important events like the hosting of the II International Tournament on Emergency Service Robots of the European Robots League (ERL), which will take place in our facilities in Seville next February.

We must highlight another unprecedented milestone in Andalusia, such as the Presidency of Seville of the Community of Ariane cities for 2019, an event in which FADA-CATEC collaborates and which will mean that the city of Seville becomes the ideal showcase to demonstrate the potential of our sector and the focus of attracting investment and business opportunities to boost our companies and technology activities in the field of space, through the environment offered by the so-called New Space. This event will have a program full of activities that will also serve for the scientific dissemination of what the Space sector represents and the applications that the whole society enjoys today thanks to the development in this field.

We have, therefore, an exciting year ahead, full of good forecasts and new challenges and illusions for both the Andalusian and Spanish aerospace sector. Let us take advantage of this to continue working among all of us - industry, administrations, technological agents and social agents - to keep on growing and positioning it as one of the most relevant in the European and international environment.

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.
