Defence

The microelectronics competence centre offers a comprehensive range of services and expertises to address the industrial issues of a fast-changing industry in a highly-competitive global environment.

A lasting commitment
Maintaining long-term programmes is a basic requirement for serving our customers. Thanks to our industrial capabilities, we are in a position to ensure the MRO of products over several decades.
Our customer support services also cover product developments over time: obsolescence tracking and monitoring, storage, re-design or even reverse engineering.

A commitment to competitiveness and a customised support
Our in-house design office assists customers in optimising their specifications so as to ensure the maintainability and manufacturability of their equipment. Our multi-technology industrial tooling is adapted to the specific requirements of defense industry applications. From the active component right up to the integration of sub-systems and systems, the service is modular and adapted to customer requirements: mock-ups, prototypes, small production runs.

Our in-house Supply Chain and our engineering teams work closely with our customers to meet the challenges of competitiveness and specifications' evolutions throughout the product's full life cycle.
Knowledge of the mechanisms governing major international defence programmes enables us to provide our customers with a clear and shared overview of the technical issues, and suggest technological breakthroughs to meet their requirements.

A commitment to reliability
Reliability of products and of data is intrinsically linked to meeting the requirements of the Defence markets. The microelectronics competence centre is committed to an ongoing reliability process when it comes to securing its processes and its products but also its classified premises and authorised defence personnel.
Addressed systems:
  • Combat aircraft: radar equipment and systems, electronic warfare
  • Missile electronics: automatic steering, active decoys, proximity fuses, guidance and propulsion controls
  • Land and naval equipment: surface radars, electronic warfare
 

Aeronautics & Space

The microelectronics competence centre supplies to 1st rank industrial companies, equipment and aircraft manufacturers, as well as integrators of the space sectors reliable and sustainable electronic solutions meeting security, longevity and sector performance challenges.
A specialist in harsh environments and a forerunner in high-temperature electronic technologies, we are developing innovative high-density energy conversion solutions meeting the new shift of the industry towards the "all electric" aircraft.
We support our customers in defining and implementing "zero defects" manufacturing procedures in order to deliver function modules which can be directly integrated in the payload of satellites or space launchers.
Reliability and traceability
In order to guarantee to our customers that our modules are reliable and robust, we provide:
  • Full management of industrial processes and sector constraints
