Atlas Air Traffic Laboratory For Advanced Systems
ATLAS is located in Herrera, within the town of Villacarrillo (Jaen), a remarkable location with airspace whose climatology and orography are perfect for the development of experimental flights with unmanned aerial vehicles.

Furthermore, ATLAS facilities count with a segregated airspace that has an extension of 1,000 km2, which turns it into an ideal center for R&D and flying tests with this kind of platforms and aircrafts.

Therefore, ATLAS has the possibility of playing an important role in validating new technologies and implementations with UAS/RPAS, in the management of many different situations such as natural disasters, fires, environmental accidents, terrestrial surveillance or maritime traffic, communications, meteorology, environmental protection, support for agriculture and forestry applications, aerial photography, cinematography, cartography, and applications in defense, security and civil protection.
