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.

Industrial collaboration support

As the new Managing Director of FADA CATEC, I have the opportunity of addressing you all taking advantage of this new digital newsletter, which has become one of our main ways to let everybody know about our projects and initiatives carried out from our Foundation and Technological Centre. It has become a very useful tool for the aerospace sector.

And I make it with a strong message of commitment and hard work to continue the support to R&D that our company has been developing for our Andalusian Aerospace Industry since 2008. I’m sure not only by the Innovation and technological development we will keep on contributing to the improvement and competitiveness of our companies. And what’s more important, to keep on positioning our company in the market, in areas of added value called to lead the technological innovation in the world aerospace sector, like unmanned air systems, avionics, robotics or new materials and manufacturing processes.

One sample of that collaboration with the industry can be recently found with the first “CATEC Industry Day”. A meeting to bring closer the latest technologies and improvements developed by our Centre and reinforce the relation with aerospace and technological enterprises, and without any doubt, it has been a complete success of participation and exchange of experiences and knowledge.

There are other examples such as the working day dedicated to new applications with unmanned air systems for inspections and maintenance works in different industrial sectors. Some of them have already been developed by our investigators and experts in the frame of the European Project ARCAS. They are opening the way for new civil uses with this kind of aircrafts.

All of them reflect our commitment in satisfying the requirements and technological needs of the industry, promote cooperation and synergies for the development of new projects and promote technology transfer. To this aim I’ll focus all my efforts as the new Director of FADA. Continuing this way is the key to strength the position of the aerospace andalusian sector as the third aerospace European hub. This way we will be able to aim future business opportunities.
