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.

In order to present the opportunities of entrepreneurship and professional development offered by new technologies linked to the aerospace sector, our Center recently organized two informative days addressed to young students from different secondary education centers in Jaen and Seville.

The initiative was framed within the project "Aeroemprende", an initiative carried out by FADA-CATEC, in collaboration with the Regional Ministry of Economy and Knowledge of the Junta de Andalucia, which seeks to detect and analyze business opportunities in the aerospace industry and promote the approach to the entrepreneur of innovative technologies in this field.

Thus, on the one hand, more than 125 students from the SAFA Villacarrillo, Mercedarias Villacarrillo and IES Las Villas Villacarrillo centers visited the facilities of our ATLAS Center in Jaen, along with Center's director, Anastasio Sánchez, and other CATEC engineers. The students saw a flight demonstration of drones and participated in an informative talk about the opportunities that these technologies represent for entrepreneurship and their professional future.

On the other hand, the IES San Jose de la Rinconada (Seville) hosted another informative session with students of the last years of secondary education, who were equally interested in knowing in detail the possibilities of professional and business development in the aerospace field. The talk also served to encourage students to pursue engineering or technological studies.
