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.

Successful completion of the FEDER Innterconecta CEMTAURO project
This ambitious project, which was approved in the call for applications in 2015, comes to an end after almost three years of work, and after reaching the objectives set initially. CEMTAURO has the participation of Aernnova Andalucia, as leader of the consortium, in addition to Sofitec and Airgrup, companies with a significant presence in the aeronautical sector, both regionally and nationally. FADA-CATEC, who has participated as a research organization, has worked closely with the consortium companies in the implementation of activities developed in the project.

The main activities of CEMTAURO have been: flexible manufacturing cells for drilling and aeronautical sealing operations; Automation of cutting and welding processes in aeronautical conduits for the transport of fluids; and finally, assistance to the operator in the assurance of aeronautical processes.

We have reached remarkable results following the development and validation of the technologies used in the project, mainly related to automation of processes in the aeronautical sector.

The Feder Innterconecta CEMTAURO Project has been funded by the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) and supported by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
