CTA Aerospace and Production Processes
Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía / CTA
CTA is a public-private partnership made up of more than 165 companies to promote innovation and technology transfer.
The Andalusian aeronautical industry is the second most important in Spain in terms of turnover and employment. It has become a significant player at an international level and is the site of the final assembly line for the A400M, the new military transport aircraft being built by Airbus Military. A wide variety of CTA members are operating in the sector, including Airbus, as well as highly specialised spin-off university projects and sub-contractors of various types.
We also help to finance numerous R&D initiatives associated with this important programme as well as others linked to the development of new materials, the investigation of new assembly technology, RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems), very light jets, etc.
In terms of other areas of production, CTA supports various projects aimed at increasing competitiveness in the Andalusian industrial sector by researching new products, industrial processes and management formulas which can offer added value. There has been special focus on projects related to the development of industry 4.0 and cyber-industry, which will help companies to optimise their processes and become more flexible, efficient and competitive.
