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.

Service vocation to SMEs

Rate it

The main purpose of FADA-CATEC, which directs our course and the reason of the creation of our entity, is promoting and developing the creation of knowledge and new technologies and transfer it to the aerospace industrial structure, boosting R&D as a key element in the development of our sector and also contributes to improving the competitiveness of our companies.

In addition, there is another important aspect, the service vocation and the support to small and medium-sized enterprises. This enterprises constitute the hundred percent of aeronautic auxiliary industry in Andalusia and more than 90% in the whole community sector. This percentage also could be extrapolated to the aeronautic and spatial industry in Spain and it shows the good position of this sector, its experience and specialization in different areas, but with companies which need more muscle and size to compete internationally with the advent of new business opportunities.

Also in the case of R&D, because it is necessary a biggest investment in this field, both in public sphere (which it has done significantly in recent years) and private sphere, to situate our aerospace industry in the leading position. For this reason in FADA-CATED we have always been clear in our major aim which is to promote this culture of innovation in business. We offer innovative and pioneering services and technologies, in many cases, for the companies, which otherwise it could be impossible to access. It helps them with the process of continue improvement, betting on knowledge and developing of technology as the bases for it develop and growth.

In this way we will continuous working and moving forwards all the professionals and people who are a member of FADA-CATEC. We are aware of our successes, as the participation of companies in R&D projects and technology pools, but there is some way to go. As was evident in the recent meeting about the programmes CIEN and Innterconecta, organizated by our Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI), we should not miss the opportunity and we should continuous promoting the presence of our aeronautic SMEs in projects and R&D initiatives. Only thus we will continue implementing this culture of innovation and technological development in our industry, especially, in auxiliary companies. It can make us an aeronautic international referent in major technological areas with more projection in recent years. Thus, for any initiative or consultation relative to R&D, all the professionals of FADA-CATEC are at the disposal of the companies in the sector.
