Logo AEDS Astrium

In August 2013, EADS-Astrium Space and Transport, EADS Innovation Works and INRIA signed a partnership agreement covering high-performance computing (HPC) and the optimisation of modelling and simulation in the design of EADS products including the new Ariane 6 launchers.

Economic and scientific challenges

To improve the economic and technical performance of space systems, including the future Ariane 6 launcher and space vehicle.

Research topics and projects

  • Simulation (or ‘virtualisation’) of the performance of future systems using advanced processing resources.
  • Control of the uncertainties to be taken into account in the design of the various sub-systems.
  • Virtual reality techniques covering all the assembly and construction constraints relating to the systems.
