Digital continuity at the heart of aeronautics and space

Digital continuity at the heart of aeronautics and space

Every 15 years, international air traffic doubles and by 2035, China's needs will equal those of all European countries. The needs for new aircrafts is increasingly pressing but industrial capacity and supply chains are limited. The civil aviation sector is under pressure. Geostrategic uncertainty is also reviving military equipment programmes and exports. Industry players need to be able to ramp up their capacity and design and rapidly market solutions.

Sopra Steria helps you to address aerospace market challenges:

  • efficiency: faster, lower-cost production is vital, while maintaining the highest quality and safety levels. These challenges must also be addressed while maintaining an appropriate level of after-sales service and profitable financial performance.
  • adaptive maintenance: Airlines need to adjust their services and maintenance to the increasing number of flights.
  • air traffic management: managing passenger and aircraft flows, taking into account increasing traffic. Anticipating integration of Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft (VTOL) and drones into the urban landscape.
  • from product to services: offer services that can be monetised, stand out from the competition, and enable greater flexibility (e.g. offer aircraft leasing by flight time not by fleet).
