Aganova's R&D department mainly develops our star product, Nautilus, a system for detecting leaks in large-diameter water pipelines, working on several lines of work for its improvement:
-Optimisation of the sphere and its functions
-New insertion/extraction techniques
-Improved hardware and software
-New functionalities of the Nautilus system for application in other sectors.
Since the beginnings, all Nautilus innovation and development work was carried out with the company's own funds. Currently, own investment in R&D&i is subsidised by grants, refundable loans, etc., obtained by presenting R&D&i projects to different initiatives. By seeking these subsidies, we aim to have our product market-ready faster and more efficiently, thereby increasing our competitiveness in the sector.
Aganova has obtained the EIBT certificate as an Innovative Technology-Based Company. The EIBT certificate recognises Aganova as a company that undertakes R&D&i processes systematically and continually, the results of which have been brought to the market through our star product, the Nautilus, the main core of our business activity.
The certificate attests to Aganova's capacity as a driving force of radical and disruptive innovation, having had direct repercussions on its business fabric of action, recording high rates of growth in production and job creation, which have been echoed in the rest of the companies involved in the development of its product.
Furthermore, because Aganova is a small-sized business, it has optimised its R&D expenditure, enabling it to develop a product such as Nautilus and market it across the globe in a very short time.
This certificate is a mark of distinction for Technology Based Innovators and is recognised by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism managed by ANCES, and is evaluated by the CDTI, CEEI and OTRI.
TÃTULO DEL PROYECTO: NAUTILUS4WORLD
OBJETIVOS DEL PROYECTO: El objetivo general del proyecto es rediseÃ±ar el sistema Nautilus para que pueda ser utilizado de forma segura, eficiente y simple en cualquier tuberÃa a nivel mundial. De esta manera, el sistema serÃ¡ estÃ¡ndar para su uso internacional. AdemÃ¡s, se desarrollarÃ¡ una Plataforma WEB a travÃ©s de la cual podrÃ¡n ser gestionadas las inspecciones, y donde el cliente podrÃ¡ consultar toda su informaciÃ³n. La Plataforma procesarÃ¡ los datos obtenidos de forma segura, y realizarÃ¡ interpretaciÃ³n de datos de gran interÃ©s para el sector del agua.
