  • 476 Kb  Unmanned commercial flights  (476 KB)
  • This consists of the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) both automatic and remotely flown to increase security and reduce manual labour intensity. The drones for civilian use have applications in multiple sectors such as industry (industrial facilities, power lines, wind turbines), transport (surveillance and inspections, rail, roads, rivers), construction (structural inspections), precision agriculture; the field of civil protection (security and civil emergencies); and audiovisual (professional photography and video).

  • 538 Kb  Air traffic management (ATM) systems  (538 KB)
  • This involves the installation of new communication systems and technologies between the airport, the aircraft and the control centre to increase the capacity of Air Navigation Services, the systems of which are expected to reach saturation in the short term due the growing volume of air traffic. Systems must follow the rules issued by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and Eurocontrol to operate under the new European standard for management of the Single European Sky, the implementation phase of which is in 2020. Among the new systems those specialising in communication and navigation that stand out are: the communication of digital voice, multichannel signal recorders; and in surveillance systems those that stand out are: primary and secondary surface radars.

  • 483 Kb  New materials: carbon fibre  (483 KB)
  • It consists of the design and production of pieces made of carbon fibre in place of heavier materials currently used in aeronautics. Reducing aircraft weight leads to a significant reduction in environmental impact (reduction of NO and CO2 of between 20% and 30%) and potential savings in terms of fuel consumption. Spain can play a key role in the construction of lightweight aerostructures due to having a strong supply chain with machinery manufacturers and engineering specialists in carbon fibre, to the detriment of aluminium, a material widely used in the construction of aircraft.

  • 539 Kb  Satellite application development  (539 KB)
  • This consists of convert the data from earth observation from a satellite to generate useful knowledge to plan, monitor and manage infrastructure, control health or agricultural work safety risks, environmental monitoring to warn, for example, farmers of threats such as as pests, drought, frost or monitoring of livestock. Currently the scientific community operates terrestrial observation data, however satellites collect information of great interest to other significant groups, such as agricultural or civil protection. The opportunity lies in opening processing centres for satellite data (public and/or private) and, also, in creating cloud solutions for computers and mobile devices.
