The IRT Saint Exupéry was present on the B92 booth, Hall 4 at the 2019 International Paris Air Show and unveiled its offer of technological platforms.

Visitors discovered on the IRT Saint Exupéry booth many samples from its four technological domains such as lattice structures realized in metal additive manufacturing, results of new coatings application for aircraft structures, presentation of innovative assembly means by laser or plasma for space, high performance functionalized thermoplastic tapes prepared on IRT’s impregnation line,  as well as demonstrators in the more electric aircraft field such as power converters.

In addition, the IRT Saint Exupéry was present on the IA & Big Data booth organized by Dassault Aviation and unveiled a new video and web site about Artificial Intelligence for Critical Systems, DEEL Project.

Numerous visitors and conferences keep our team and partners busy in developing new opportunities.
