Aeronautics & Space

In a context of high-growth, companies in the aeronautics sector are faced with a large number of challenges. In the space sector, competition between the United States and Europe fosters innovation and investment.

The ALTEN Group’s product and service supply is particularly well suited to the major challenges facing the industry. Aircraft manufacturers and OEM’s are transforming their production tool and logistics chain by integrating new technologies: robots, augmented reality, big data, 3D printing, etc. mobilising ALTEN know-how in lean manufacturing, supply chain and digitalization.

The MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) market follows the development of the sector. ALTEN supports airlines, on behalf of its client manufacturers with the challenges related to technical documentation, Integrated Logistics, maintainability and aircraft upgrading.

The drop in launch costs promise the steady growth of launches in the coming years. Widespread access to satellite data has encouraged the arrival of new private and institutional players on this market.
