Drone technology at the service of research on the Moncloa Campus

The Universidad Complutense de Madrid has been recently authorized by the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA) as an operator of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), commonly known as drones.


The Microdrone MD4-1000 system was previously acquired by the university on a call for scientific infrastructure for the Campus Moncloa: Campus of International Excellence funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.

The equipment is jointly operated by the CAI de Arqueometría y Análisis Arqueológico and the Departmental Section of Astronomy and Geodesy of School of Mathematics UCM.

Being authorized as drone operators with qualified pilots of radio-controlled aircraft is a remarkable fact since only a few numbers of companies and public organisms are authorized in Spain to carry out research using this technology.
