Safran is an international high-technology group, operating in the aircraft propulsion and equipment, space and defense markets.

Safran has a global presence, with more than 58,000 employees worldwide, and logged sales of 16.5 billion euros in 2017. Comprising a number of companies, Safran holds, alone or in partnership, world or European leadership positions in its markets. Safran undertakes extensive Research & Development programs to keep pace with its fast-evolving markets, including expenditures of 1.4 billion euros in 2017.
In February 2018, Safran took control of Zodiac Aerospace, significantly expanding its aircraft equipment activities. Together with Zodiac Aerospace, Safran has more than 91,000 employees and would have around €21 billion in adjusted revenue (pro forma 2016).


Safran develops, produces and sells engines and propulsion systems for civil and military fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, as well as a wide range of aircraft equipment.


Operating in the optronic, inertial guidance, tactical drone, electronics and safety-critical software markets, Safran offers today’s armed forces a complete range of optronic, navigation and optical systems and equipment for use in the air, on land and at sea.


Safran is a world leader in the space industry. It offers systems and equipment for launch vehicles and satellites, while ArianeGroup - a 50/50 joint company between Safran and Airbus - designs and produces the European launchers Ariane 5 and Ariane 6, marketed by its subsidiary Arianespace. Safran is also producing high-performance optics.


High Performance Computing is a major tool for Safran to solve the most challenging problems for systems:

  • to reduce design cycle time and development/production costs
  • to grant safe behavior
  • to  improve architectures
  • to optimize performance
  • to reduce environmental impact

TERATEC gives opportunities to communicate with most important actors of HPC, educational or research institutes, techno-providers or user companies and to prepare future evolutions into a coordinated approach.

Several Safran companies are also partners of CCRT (Research and Technology Computing Centre).
