Atmos 6 portable system  Since 2003 CATUAV has been carrying on an I+D process that has led to a complete and functional UAV system. Some of our main developments are:
  • Design and production of 5 different UAV platforms.
  • Design and production of a ground control station.
  • Design of the communication protocol and control software.
  • Design of the communication modem and telemetry link.
  • Payload design and integration: multispectral cameras, atmosphere sensors...
  • Development of mission specific flight planning software.
All these developments allows us to know exactly how the full system works so we can operate it optimally. Furthermore, we are capable of integrating new payloads and designing new platforms in order to obtain mission specific UAV systems when a project requires it.


In order to satisfy the specific necessities of each client we perform a completely customized follow-up for each project. After identifying the main mission requirements and environment constraints, the optional operation chain is designed. This includes the selection of the most suitable UAV and onboard sensors, the flight planning and operation, and the image and data postprocessing, supplying a comprehensive and optimal solution to our client's necessities.


Chain value 


Our headquarters are located in Moià, very near to Barcelona, being our main area of work the European Community. However our systems can be easily packed and loaded into an airplane, so we offer our services worldwide. Furthermore, we are opened to negotiate with distributors to resell our services.
