Our ambition: design innovative high-performance solutions to respond to the challenges of the civil and defense aviation sector.
Contribute to defining future platforms
ARESIA has established itself as an aeronautics operator of the future. Our active innovation policy aims to tackle the major challenges of tomorrow, such as decarbonization in civil aviation or the design of more connected, more electric aircraft.
ARESIA has adopted an innovation roadmap based on four main areas:
- Digital technologies onboard and on the ground through the use of embedded electronic and IT systems in order to digitize the systems and gather, process and use data, making use of embedded artificial intelligence and augmented reality.
- The technologies for the carriage equipment of the future, developing new electromechanical and pneumatic functions, innovating in terms of materials and improving the industrial processes, with the emphasis on automation, robotization and the digital integration of the entire production chain (factory of the future)
- Energy storage technologies to address the challenge of decarbonization in the aviation sector, to enable increased autonomy and design the future energy storage and distribution systems, particularly of bio-fuels and liquid hydrogen.
- Complex assembly technologies, defining new assembly solutions from the concept to the end product via our industrial skills and thus satisfy our customers thanks to more reliable, more robust and more environmentally friendly equipment.
This roadmap will be added to over the years to reflect our vision of the major innovation challenges in civil and defense aeronautics.
To deploy its innovation strategy, the group relies on a multi-disciplinary team of employees equipped with industrial and digital test means. ARESIA has adopted an Open innovation approach, with the incubation of innovations in-house and a Lab’innovation. We are developing a very dense network of partnerships, both with regard to research laboratories, engineering schools and startups, several competitiveness hubs such as ASTECH, STARBUST/PÔLE EMC2 and the IRT Jules Verne, and with all the other key operators in the civil and defense aeronautical ecosystems in which the company is fully involved.
ARESIA is Research Tax Credit approved – recognition of sufficient R&D potential to be a service provider on behalf of third parties.
