Tests and analyses for the aeronautics industry
Your needs: to design reliable and efficient aeronautical equipment
As major players or subcontractors in the aeronautics or space industries, the quality and reliability of your materials and equipment are paramount to ensure the security of the goods or the comfort the people being transported.
Studying your materials and aeronautical equipment will allow you to increase the performance of your materials (lifespan, weight, noise output) and to optimize your costs (price of materials, maintenance) all while complying with environmental norms.
These challenges prompt you to seek help from a responsive and reliable laboratory offering high added technical value.
