Ascending Technologies will be present with a stand at #FITIC2015 which takes place in Madrid 30th June – 2nd July. Organised by Science & Research Association APLIC (Asociación para la innovación científica, ).

RPAS for Civil Engineering, Mapping & Surveying applications

This is the first Spanish congress specifically organized around the topic “RPAS for Civil Engineering and Mapping & Surveying applications”. All major international GeoPositioning brands will exhibit at the FITIC 2015, as well as the leading Spanish Research and Scientific Institutions, such as IGN, the National Geographic Institute (Instituto Geográfico Nacional).

FITIC 2015 – Civil RPAS Engineering & Surveying

To give a view of the big picture of the new technical possibilities in Civil Engineering & Surveying with the appropriate use of RPAS, and how the UAV technology enables quantum leaps in productivity in many traditional inspection and surveying tasks. FITIC 2015 wants to “open the eyes” to the many opportunities to improve management and workflows in inspection and maintenance tasks of infra-structures. The increased presence of UAVs in our lives becomes obvious, and by attending, the main players in the industry will learn:

  • Learn about the legal framework of operating a UAV commercially, and address safety concerns.
  • Learn about the most innovative applications which will help to optimize our day-to-day work in the field or on the construction site.
  • Learn, where to apply for R&D grants to promote further innovation projects.
  • Learn, which are the most important Spanish research institutions, and how they can support private industry in new projects.

FITIC 2015 – UAV-driven applications for Surveyers an Civil Engineers

High-level technical workshops will be held around new UAV-driven applications for surveyors an civil rngineers (see program attached: (, on days 1 and 2. On these two days (30th June & 1st July) the AscTec Falcon 8 will be doing demo-flights.

On day 3 (2nd July), group visits are organized to the cites of INTA the National Aeronautics Institute (Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial), as well as CEDEX, the National Center for Public Building experimentation (Centro de estudios y experimentación de obras públicas – Ministerio de Fomento).

SENASA RPAS pilot training for commercial operations in Spain

Also present is SENASA, Spain´s leading flight school that has chosen the AscTec Falcon 8 for their advanced RPAS Pilot instruction courses, the next one taking place in English in Barcelona 16-18 July. Inscriptions please check:
