The aeronautics industry is under pressure to reduce its environmental footprint while continuing to meet the most stringent safety requirements. And safety standards are getting tougher, creating new certifications that aircraft builders and parts manufacturers must obtain to get their products approved.
CEA Tech is helping aeronautics- and space-industry companies rise to these challenges by developing real-time diagnostics technologies from embedded sensors to structural health monitoring systems, rounded out by extensive know-how in software security.
CEA Tech is also making advances for more energy-efficient on-board systems and more fuel-efficient combustion in aircraft engines. Specifically, CEA Tech’s materials R&D is helping make aircraft structures and assemblies lighter in weight.
Aeronautics-industry leaders like Safran and Airbus turn to CEA Tech for their R&D needs.
Integrating gallium nitride(gan) - on-silicon power components into converters. With Exagan’s GaN-on-silicon technology,tomorrow’s electric power converters will be smaller, more efficient, and less expensive.
Absolute pressure sensors are crucial to measuring a helicopter’s altitude and flight speed. And Thales has developed a new sensor that offers revolutionary precision of 0.05% no matter what you throw at it....
Switches are important components on board a satellite, performing a range of crucial functions. For example, if there is an incident on a circuit, a switch is used to transfer the load to a working circuit.
A nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) magnetometer was used in 1987 to search the North Atlantic for the sunken Titanic...
Among the three state-of-the-art instruments on board the ESA’s 2009 Herschel satellite mission was an extraordinarily precise infrared camera which, if used on Earth,...
