In order to facilitate the integration of mini-UAV systems in controlled airspace, CATUAV began several months ago the development of a complete TCAS system (Traffic Collision Avoidance System). This system is based on the same protocol and communications network used by general aviation and does...

CATUAV has developed an electric version of the ARGOS UAV platform designed specifically to meet the demands of CSIC's MESTRAL project. This new platform will permit to obtain simultaneously images in thermal, NIR and visible spectrums of the Alfacs Bay in a single flight of...

The month of June has been a month full of awards for CATUAV, here is a brief summary: On Monday 4 La Vanguardia published in the Entrepreneurs section a four columns report on CATUAV. In the same newspaper appears Jordi Santacana, director and founder of the...

The main goal of the project MESTRAL is to investigate the presence of small-scale transport processes in the Alfacs Bay, and how they affect the spatial patterns of optically active constituents (sediments, phytoplankton and dissolved organic matter) and the underwater light-field variability. Over three years the Marine...

The prestigious BBC corporation has recently published a report based on CATUAV experience in the control of European agricultural subsidies. This report describes the technological and economic advantages that make the ATMOS-6 mini-UAV an excellent tool for agricultural inspection. Read full BBC report >>...

Accurate and consistent calibration of the cameras used in photogrammetric flights is key to obtaining accurate results. CATUAV has recently acquired the capability to calibrate the cameras used on UAV platforms. The procedure is based on a high precision target and RapidCalPro software, which generates...

Vibrations aboard a UAV are especially harmful because they induce interference in accelerometers and gyroscopes in the inertial system and reduce the quality of captured images. CATUAV has developed the first mercury dynamic balancer for mini-UAV with a diameter of only 28 mm and a...

During the 14th and December 15 CATUAV has participated in the workshop organized by MosaicMill in Vantaa (Finland). The aim of this conference is to strengthen the training of distributors and share ideas and experiences on the use of EnsoMOSAIC software....
