Flying the future

Dassault Aviation can draw on its many strengths in order to map out its long-term future in an extremely competitive economic environment.

Customer satisfaction is at the core of our strategy. Dassault Aviation can offer its customers, from design through to operation, a massive panoply of know-how fed by the cross-fertilization of its civil and military activities, underpinned by a solid set of values and a strong enterprise culture.

We are steering towards the future by launching new programs:

  • research into a new business jet;
  • preliminary projects on environmentally-friendly, high-performance executive aircraft;
  • a range of unmanned combat aircraft and observation drones.

We shall make sure to maintain the efficiency of the Rafale faced with the challenge of future operational environments. The Group is bringing to maturity its unmanned combat aircraft concepts in extending its work on the nEUROn.

As an architect of complex airborne systems, and expert in the main sovereignty technologies, Dassault Aviation is renowned for its design and industrialization offices. Thanks to our unique experience, we develop pragmatic and innovative cooperation paradigms that are applicable to the entire aerospace industry.

Dassault Aviation is becoming the digital business par excellence. The progressive spread of the sixth version of the product lifecycle management process (PLM V6) and of its Systems component has generated new collaborative processes. PLM V6 offers unparalleled collaboration perspectives through the coordination of protagonists (either in-house or external to the company), projects, processes (whatever the location), employee, program and product. Configured to match production to the market cycles, Dassault Aviation is able to draw on its flexible industrial facilities.

For Dassault Aviation, the protection of the environment is a global issue requiring a collective effort. We believe that the major developments to come in the field of aerospace will be measured against the yardstick of the initiatives launched in this domain. The Group is to pursue and develop its initiatives, in particular via the European Clean Sky research project, so that its activities and its products may contribute to the preservation of our planet.
