FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW 2018

Visit Altran at Hall 1 Stand 1512

ABOUT THE SHOW

The Farnborough International Airshow is an unmissable event for aerospace and defence sector stakeholders, on a global scale. Featuring more than 1500 exhibitors from 52 countries, the show provides a major opportunity for businesses to engage with industry and showcase the latest products and services before an international, target audience.

This year, organisers will unveil the new, state-of-the-art Hall One exhibition space – an area in which Altran has secured a stand to exhibit its key offers to the industry.

ADVANCED AIRCRAFT DEVELOPMENT

Societal and commercial demands are driving the factors that will constitute a successful aircraft of the future. Improved capacity, efficiency and customer experience are just a few challenges facing manufacturers today.Above all, the ability to innovate will ultimately determine which companies will prosper in industry tomorrow.

Altran’s multidisciplinary, multi-sector teams can support this process with a wealth of experience in high-technology engineering – from designing hybrid-electric systems to developing next-generation HMIs.

Altran’s experts in fields as diverse as vehicle systems engineering, aircraft aerodynamics, safety-critical systems and software development, cyber security, advanced manufacturing and design will be at Farnborough to showcase how Altran’s leading-edge expertise can contribute to aircraft development programmes via a dynamic schedule of flash workshops and talks – the Altran UK Twitter account will provide up-to-the-minute details on show week.

PRODUCTION RAMP-UP AND AEROSPACE 4.0

In order to address significant production challenges, the aerospace industry’s leading players must embrace the technologies that will make their manufacturing processes agile, intelligent and fast. The next industrial revolution is here, characterised by ‘smart’ factories marrying previous advances in technology with the advent of cyber-physical systems. The potential offered by this new era of advanced manufacturing is truly game changing: more efficiency, flexibility and productivity from a product’s conception to its launch, delivering all-important faster time-to-market in an industry that is moving at an unprecedented speed.

The Altran team will be on hand at Farnborough to provide insight into the technologies making the difference – automation, latest-generation capital equipment, augmented reality, machine learning, IoT technologies, data mining and advanced analytics to name a few.

Altran’s experts in Aerospace 4.0 have developed proven methodologies to drive manufacturing efficiency, with quantified improvements made for customers including figures as impressive as a 30% increase in work force productivity, 20% reduction in maintenance costs and 40% reduction in inventory.

Stand visitors will be able to see an example of recent work undertaken for Airbus, with the opportunity to navigate a digital twin of the manufacturer’s Puerto Real factory using thought alone!

DIGITAL SERVICES AND CONNECTIVITY

Disruptive digital technologies are exerting such an impact on modern civilization that late adopters are risking nothing short of disappearance. Business models are evolving as companies realise that digital disruptions are not only essential for survival, but present an opportunity to rethink the ways in which they deliver value to the market.

Altran’s advanced HMI, asset tracking and digital modelling specialists will be at the air show to share how Altran is helping to reshape businesses in the digital age.

In addition, experts in two domains that are critical to digital transformation programmes – data science and cyber security – will be showcasing aerospace-focused solutions via live demonstrations on stand.

Check the Altran UK Twitter account for details from Monday 16th July.

A RESPONSIBLE PLAYER: FUTURES DAY AND WEEKEND ACTIVITIES

Altran is a sponsor of Futures Day, an initiative established to encourage young people aged 11–21 to consider a career in the exciting aerospace and defence sectors. The team will be holding two activities on the Altran stand on Friday, Saturday and Sunday:

  • Who says that creativity and STEM don’t go together? At the Altran stand we’ll be holding a photography challenge, in which you will be given ten aircraft-related themes. As you explore the airshow, we’ll be asking you to look for original and creative ways to interpret and capture each theme in a single snapshot. We’ll display the best entries at the Altran stand, with one lucky winner receiving each day’s grand prize!

  • Join us for a unique workshop to teach you how HTML and JavaScript can be used to animate images, or, more specifically, emojis! Most of us use them every day, but few of us can bring them to life. This session is suitable for all – from complete beginners to programming pros. We look forward to seeing you at FIA 2018
