France’s defense industry must overcome fierce international competition to win additional market share. And the industry’s ability to compete will depend on how well it can leverage very advanced technologies while controlling production costs.
Today’s weapons must be able to perceive and analyze their environments, be interoperable, offer stealth capabilities, and provide their own energy supply.
CEA Tech offers market-ready technologies ranging from sensors of all types to energy harvesting, storage, and management systems. CEA Tech is also a source of robotized communicating systems and, finally, can provide key support on cybersecurity and cyberdefense, which now play a major role in national defense systems.
List recently reached a new milestone in cybersecurity, proving that its Frama-C formal verification software can be used to make sure that encryption software code is secure. The advance was part of research conducted under FormalLab, a joint List-Thales R&D initiative.
INAC and Leti, a CEA Tech institute, have built the first-ever qubit using a CMOS transistor. The transistor was used to code, manipulate, and store quantum information. The advance will pave the way to new developments in quantum computing.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, and Safran recently developed a new low-mass, high-energy-density hybrid energy source that can operate within a wide temperature range. The R&D was commissioned by the French Directorate General for Armaments.
