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 develops simulation systems for validating safely new systems and products aimed at critical applications
Using advanced simulation systems, with 3D visualization and integration of new devices (immersive systems, haptic, etc.), is one of the technologies that most are developed and implemented in recent years in various sectors, and in which CATEC has been working intensively through some projects and lines of research. One of these research lines is the development and modelling of virtual scenarios to validate in a safe and reliable way software for products or integrated systems for critical applications.
This technological approach allows the software or application that is developed can be validated in a secure simulated environment, so that does not involve unnecessary risks to people and facilities. It also makes possible to detect and correct design flaws, programming or operation before being put into service, as well as reduce development costs of any project or product.

CATEC develops customized models and simulation systems, adapted to the needs of businesses and customers. To learn more about this technology, please contact our center through this email:
