Ixion Industry and Aerospace is a highly technological Spanish SME working in the fields of aerospace, industry, robotics and systems integration. It is a spin-off of TCP Sistemas e Ingeniería which was founded in 1993. Ixion Industry and Aerospace was created in 2011, from the former Industry and Aerospace Division from TCP, and it has 35 employees at the moment.
Ixion is focused on the industry, aerospace and transport markets, and inherits the know-how and experience from the Industrial and Aerospace Div. of TCP Sistemas e Ingeniería, with more than fifteen years’ experience in that market. Its activities are organized in two departments: Ground Monitoring and Control systems and advanced HMIs, and Embedded systems for On Board Autonomous applications.
The company’s strength and experience in software engineering spans from requirements analysis and definition to validation and verification, simulation and testing. The company has extensive experience in autonomous robots, both aerial and terrestrial, having built control and navigation systems and ground stations in several projects in collaboration with companies like Boeing to ESA projects such as the Exomars Rover. Additionally, an automotive branch was lunched two years ago with the ambition to develop state-of-the-art ADAS. The On Board Division has a RT HW-SW Simulation Lab and an Autonomous Vehicles Lab with operational UAV, UGV, QR and ADAS prototypes.
The Company has always been based in leading edge technologies. For this reason, it has been involved from its inception in many R&D initiatives and projects, with a historical involvement with Universities, especially in the Madrid area, but also at international level. It has been leader of several Framework Programme projects, and currently participates in an FP7 project (REPARA, FP7-ICT-2013-10- 609666), in two Artemis projects (iFest -call 2010- and EMC2 –call 2013) and several national R&D initiatives.
