Safety and defense
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.
The Epicool project is investigating the use of optics to cool epileptogenic areas in the brains of epilepsy patients resistant to other treatments. A prototype implantable device is currently being developed and will be miniaturized before animal testing begins.
Coriolis Nano, commercialized by Bertin Technologies, was developed by Leti, a CEA Tech institute. The device, which can detect airborne viruses, could help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
At a time when artificial intelligence is making inroads into our everyday lives, List, a CEA Tech institute, is driving advances in cybersecurity that could result in more robust neural networks. CES 2020 provided an opportunity to showcase two demonstrator systems.
NuVISION, commercialized by NUVIA, is the world’s first four-in-one gamma camera. It was recently approved by the 2024 Paris Olympics security committee.
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.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
