For over thirty years of existence, FUNCATE has been playing its role in the management of research and technological development projects, with funds from national and international funding agencies, in a joint venture with supported institutions. Due to the close relationship with the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), it also offers to society a remote sensing service, aimed at the study of natural mineral resources, as well as lightning alert services with national coverage through the Lightning Monitoring and Warning Centre.
