The global geopolitical context is currently in a very bad state. After two decades of counterterrorism, military powers are preparing for the return of inter-state ‘high intensity conflict’.

Benefiting from unprecedented budgetary efforts, the defense industry must accelerate the development of equipment programmes (air combat, naval, space and cyber, etc.) adapted to this new context.

At the same time, the sector must acquire new skills (data, robotisation, etc.) to anticipate technological breakthroughs.

Our Success Stories

In a highly competitive environment, a major combat aircraft manufacturer has won three export contracts with countries in Asia and the Middle East successively. ALTEN accompanies the client in customising the aircraft and in supporting industrial transfers.

With its experience acquired in the aeronautics and automotive sectors, ALTEN is supporting a world leader in naval defence systems in the deployment of a collaborative software platform (Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE).
This Cloud-based tool reduces the time required to design and build a new ship, by converging methods and tools between the various sites (design office, shipyard, etc.), but also with industrial partners.

One of the world leaders in naval defence systems has chosen MI-GSO (a specialised ALTEN Group subsidiary) to support industrial project management on PMO business lines for the international development of a new-generation submarine programme.
