Accompanied by the managing director of FADA-CATEC, Joaquin Rodriguez, and the Head of the ATLAS Center, Francisco Alarcon, they saw first-hand the state-of-the-art infrastructures of a unique complex in Europe for testing and operations with unmanned aerial systems.

In a few days the ATLAS center will celebrate seven year from its opening, and along these years it has established itself as a benchmark flight center for drones, unmanned systems and High Altitude Pseudosatellites (HAPS), thanks to its excellent facilities and a segregated airspace of more than 1,000 square kilometers.
