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.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, unveiled a state-of-the-art demonstrator chip for high-performance computing applications at ISSCC 2020. The low-cost, energy-efficient processor is built on an innovative multi-core system that is both modular and expandable
A software suite to automate the optimization and validation of industrial process task scheduling was developed at FactoryLab.
A first-ever proof-of-concept of a 1 kW PEMFC stack made with printed components was recently completed. The technology is implemented using continuous processes, which reduces costs. However, it also promises to boost power densities.
A new computer-aided design tool will make battery packs safer by measuring the impact of dimensioning changes on the behavior of the battery packs. Specifically, the tool improves the evaluation of thermal runaway risk.
A smart Li-Fi orchestrator was presented at CES 2020. It automatically detects any interference between lamps and optimizes the data transmission rates for each device on the network.
