Facilities & Services

The “Centro de Investigación Aeroportada de Rozas” (CIAR), is located in Castro de Rei (Lugo). This Centre is a joint initiative of the INTA, the “Xunta de Galicia” through the “Axencia Galega de Innovación”  (GAIN) an the “Instituto Galego de Promoción Económica” (IGAPE), and the actual “Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades (MICIU).

The CIAR is an innovative Testing Center, whose objective is the integration of both Aerial Research Platforms (ARP) and new Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) developments, in a centre that offers the necessary infrastructure and equipment for the aircraft development and the evaluation of the campaigns needed, in order to have the possibility to test the systems in a safe and efficient way.

 

Control center

Control center

The control center will be conceived as the operative core of the CIAR. Three basic and essential aspects converge in it for each operation: safety, instrumentation, supervision of the operation by INTA. READ MORE

Communications Systems

Communications Systems

This system has 5 modules (with the possibility to expand them) with basic voice communication capacities with: air traffic control, other control centers and air and surface. This system can evolve to an extended communication air-to-surface and surface-to-air net, with a system which will permit the access to shared radio resources, but with privilege control. In addition, the system has a communication subsystem to connect all the CIAR locations considered essential to make the center operative.

On-site meteorological service

On-site meteorological service

The necessity of a meteorological service for a center of this kind is something essential for the planning of the different tests that the CIAR can carry out. For a correct long term planning, it is necessary to know accurately the meteorological conditions for each season, making it possible to determine which are the best test windows. To achieve this goal, the CIAR has access to all the meteorological data stored through years. With this data it is possible to make an accurate analysis to know better how the weather works in this region. Visualization and reception of this data are monitored by the Control Center, but also in other interesting locations for the people making their tests campaigns.

Security Systems (Secondary Radar)

Security Systems (Secondary Radar)

In order to grant aircraft safety during the tests, it is necessary to have a surveillance system that offers information of the air activity at all times, both of the center and external to it. The objective is to make those aircraft work in a cooperative way, identifying and tracking them.
