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 will develop new products for the aerospace sector through the PHASE project

Collaborates with the company CiTD in the creation of strategic components that can be integrated into space missions taking advantage of the possibilities of additive manufacturing

CATEC will collaborate with the Spanish engineering company CiTD in the development of the FASE project, a new initiative aimed at the design, development and manufacture of new space components.

Concretely CiTD and CATEC will develop strategic components that can be integrated in the future in space missions taking advantage of 100% of the possibilities offered by additive manufacturing. The objective components will be part of launchers and satellites, as well as manufacturing and assembly tools.

The project began in early 2018 and is currently working on the design and manufacture of part of the new solutions. The project has been financed by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities and the State Research Agency.
