Gaptek delivers a UAV hangar, support buildings and communication towers to the NSPA

Apr 29, 2019

We are proud to announce the finalization of the first project contracted through the NSPA, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency.


The project consists of the delivery of deployable support buildings for the new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) of the Air Force of the Spanish Ministry of Defense. The buildings are located at the Talavera la Real Air Base (Badajoz) and are used by the Air Force unit Ala 23.

The set of buildings consists of a hangar for two unmanned aircrafts (UAV), which is 27m wide, 38m long and 8m high, support buildings (modules) and two 15-meters high communication towers.

We would like to emphasize that the project has been carried out in a record time, with a total assembly time of the whole project of less than two months.

The buildings delivered to the Ministry of Defense are prepared in all their details to give support during the maintenance and use of these unmanned aerial vehicles. They are provided with European and American currents, bridge cranes, air conditioning, power generation and fuel tanks.

In addition, it is an infrastructure designed to be located in all climatic conditions, in terms of wind, snow and earthquake loads and the control of thermal insulation, minimizing weights and volumes to be easily transported in all scenarios.

The design and engineering of the Gaptek System allows these buildings to be transported in 20-foot ISO containers in the aircrafts used by the Spanish Air Force, such as the C-130 and A400M.

As for the construction of the buildings, the military personnel have been instructed so that they can autonomously assemble all the buildings.

These buildings are added to the aircraft shelter that Gaptek delivered at the same Talavera la Real Air Base, also designed and built based on our own construction system.

We appreciate the support of the NSPA and the Logistical Support Command of the Spanish Air Force and the Ala 23 for their trust throughout the execution of the project.
