Green Plane, New Space, UAVs and satellite applications
The new industrial and service-related issues in the aerospace sector present major challenges in which we can help our clients to innovate.
- Consolidate the aeronautics-sector supply chain by promoting the emergence and development of intermediate-sized enterprises.
- Help intermediate-sized enterprises get to grips with new production technologies (composite, metallic and additive manufacturing) and the factory of the future.
- Support equipment suppliers to the space sector and help them negotiate successfully the emerging industrial challenges presented by NEW SPACE.
- Participate in the development of the Green Plane by coming up with eco-innovations that make a difference.
- Develop high added-value service activities based on satellite data in a wide range of application domains, and determine the best business models to have in place to ensure that all contributors to the value-added chain benefit from these usage innovations.
- Incorporate a UAV link in this value chain to develop further services.
Since our establishment in 2003, we have worked on more than 200 projects on behalf of manufacturers in the AEROSPACE sector, and our network – not just in France but throughout Europe – is second to none.
