The first major project of CATUAV was the development of a small and portable fixed-wing UAV system capable of performing real time surveillance tasks. The project was financed by Indra, that at that time was willing to get introduced in the emerging civilian drone market. During those years it was impossible to buy at an affordable price the basic drone systems. This lead CATUAV team to develop our own autopilot, mission control software, telemetry system, drone platform … covering the entire technology chain. That base has given us the independence and ability to develop custom systems that we now offer to all our customers.
