Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya

The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), or Technical University of Catalonia, is a university with a consolidated worldwide reputation and an international vision that generates technological innovation and attracts talent. It is also the Spanish university with more strategic research projects funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7).

In APACHE, the ICARUS research group, as part of the UPC, will be involved. ICARUS is a multidisciplinary research group focused in two research big areas: the automation and the integration of remotely piloted aerial systems (RPAS) into no-segregated airspace; and the improvement of air transportation efficiency, while reducing its environmental impact, focusing on optimisation strategies for aircraft operations and ATM processes.
