Airbus France

Participant : Yves Papegay.

To improve the production of numerical (flight) simulators from models of aerodynamics, Airbus France is interested in methods and tools like those described in 6.2.1 .

Following the contracts signed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 with the aircraft maker, and a consulting contract in 2008 to study the possible development of an industrial tool, we have initiated in 2009 a 2-years collaboration (extended in 2012) to enhanced the functionnalities and performances of the existing pieces of software belonging to Airbus and to turn them into a prototype that integrate and showcase our results. Final version of the resulting modeling and simulation environment has been licensed to Airbus through three successive transfer agreement signed in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Enhancements and extensions developed in 2013 have also been licensed to Airbus this year. Transfer of know-how for industrialization and maintenance has been covered by a consulting contract.
