Solar impulse

Altran, official engineering partner of the first aircraft capable of flying all day and night using only solar energy.

Few projects can match the engineering and technology challenges of Solar Impulse, which achieved the world’s first

round-the-world flight in a solar-powered airplane. As one of the project’s founding partners, Altran has contributed mainly in two critical areas: flight routing and autopilot.

4D visualization

An innovative systems to manage peak air traffic management and ensure safety




NATS provides 4D visualization, an innovative system developed by Altran. This system is a totally immersive version using Oculus Rift technology. The Altran 4D visualization system enabled the user to examine an air traffic incident in four dimensions and identify its root cause and be sure to learn the right lessons.

SARISTU (Smart Intelligent Aircraft Structures)

The development of the future intelligent composite structures for aircraf

European Union

SARISTU is a large-scale integrating project which aims at achieving reductions in aircraft weight and operational costs, as well as an improvement in the flight profile specific aerodynamic performance. In this context, Altran participated in Application Scenario 7 with a focus on the development of a prediction method capable of assessing the airworthiness of aeronautic structures in the presence of barely visible multisite damage. The working team developed a damage assessment tool capable of providing decision-making support for further pilot actions.

Digital Control Room

A new aggregation and data capitalization tool enhancing time optimization, flexibility and simplicity

Aeronautics OEM

Our client needed a visual interface centralizing the key performance indicators (KPIs) of one of its aircraft programs in order to improve time management and information sharing. Altran developed a Digital Control Room, which is an aggregation and data capitalization tool. This solution provides a new visual interface for KPI centralization, enhancing time optimization, flexibility and simplicity.

Secure Communication Interface

Securing the gateway between the avionics world and the open world

Aeronautics OEM

The Secure Communication Interface (SCI) is a basic element of the aircraft network as a whole, ensuring the security of the information exchanged between the cabin, the cockpit and the avionics systems, as well as the information exchanged with ground. The mission of the Altran team was to ensure the development, industrialization and delivery of all the components, as well as airlines’ serial support for NSS and FSA-NG programs.

Digital framework for the manufacturing of the future

An end-to-end digital framework to improve manufacturing operations

The project concerned the development of an end-to-end Digital framework to improve manufacturing operations. The goal was to use the potential offered by digital technologies to increase productivity in the production line, through a user-centric digital approach for transformation of manufacturing operations that accommodates operational improvements defined through a 6-dimension (6D) assessment. The dimensions covered was: planning & programming, work stations, organization and human resources, suppliers, logistics, digital  landscape.
