  Reduce weight... and streamline operations!
Tomorrow’s low-carbon aircraft will have to go on
a diet, and also incorporate electrical systems optimized for lower power consumption. Safran provides a broad portfolio of aircraft systems and equipment to meet
these challenges.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE MATERIALS
■ The need to reduce aircraft weight means greater use of composite materials, which combine high strength with low weight.
■ Safran’s engines and equipment, whether nacelles, landing gear, brakes or even cabin interiors, are subject to heavy loads and sometimes very high temperatures. To develop the high-performance solutions needed, Safran has set up dedicated research entities in these key areas. For instance, Safran Composites for organic matrix composites, and Safran Ceramics for higher- temperature ceramic matrix composites, both integrated into the Group’s Research & Technology Center, Safran Tech.
■ Other priority areas of research include new metallic alloys and higher performance coatings.
