Safran’s electronic equipment and systems are used in most modern military aircraft, especially our inertial navigation systems. These systems, consisting of a series of gyroscopes and accelerometers, are used to accurately calculate the speed and height of the aircraft, and thus the flight path and position.
Today’s leading military aircraft manufacturers rely on Safran’s technological expertise: Airbus Defense and Space, Dassault, Sukhoi, Lockheed Martin, Aermacchi, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL), etc. Safran can also provide full avionics upgrades as part of fighter aircraft modernization programs. In addition to providing flight management assistance, flexibility and precision for pilots, these state-of-the-art systems are important from a strategic point of view.
