With more than 66,500
employees worldwide, Safran is a top-tier supplier of high-tech systems and
equipment, with leading positions in the Aerospace, Defense and Security
Safran invests 12% of
her revenue in Research & Development to match the fast-pace of dynamic
markets. Thomson-Reuters ranked Safran one of the Top 100 Global Innovators
with an average of 750 patents per year. (Ranked number 3 in the top French
organizations to have patents granted)
SAFRAN is building a
state of the art corporate research center to develop out-of the box
innovations and disruptive technologies for the aerospace, defense and security
This facility will be
located in Paris-Saclay campus, the French world-class technology cluster of
research institutions and higher education.
research center will be comprised of ~300 multicultural aerospace physical, and
computer scientists and engineers organized into three main fields: advanced
aerospace systems (propulsion and energetics, electrical and electronic
systems); digital technologies (information and signal processing, modeling and
simulation); materials and sensors (materials and processes, test lab, sensor
technologies and applications).
