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.

The Centre opens a new technical advisor service to enterprises to make new flights with UAV
CATEC with more than six years of experience in the development of unmanned air systems (UAS/RPAS) and operation of this kind of aircraft, has launched a new service for those enterprises interested in the document processing of the paperwork required by the State Air Security Agency (AESA) to make flights with UAS in Spain according to the new regulation approved by the Ministry of development.

These are the offered services:
• Portfolio documentation preparation with all the needed information to fulfil the previous requirements of the operation which include:
-Aircraft characterization
-Aeronautical safety study of the operation or operations
-Technical management of the permissions for the execution of testing flights before the operation and certifying documentation of its completion.
-Operation manual and maintenance programme preparation for any kind of aircraft(fixed wing, rotary wing, multirotor)
-Technical assistance in the execution of testing flights to require to show that operations can be done in a safety way.
-Advising in insurance’s obtaining or in the preparation and management of any kind of additional information.

CATEC has specialized personal and wide experience in preparing permissions with AESA, having prepared for example permissions for flight UNVEX 2012 y 2014 and for the ATLAS Test Flight Center. In the same way it participated last year with this entity in the workshops of the Spanish Community of RPAS where the new regulation about UAS in Spain has been given shape.
