       We developed an integrated set of tracking algorithms for a multi-function radar.


        We created a complete interactive replica of a real aeronautic factory which can be monitored and controlled in a virtual reality environment.

          CEDA earth observation

          Capgemini Engineering (Tessella) developed a new visualization service for CEDA (Center for Environmental Data Archival), to bring Earth observation data to life.

            Sun Cloud

            We designed and developed a solar-powered, multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle, the Sun Cloud.

              The challenge

              With security concerns and investments occupying center-stage across the world, the defense industry is under strong pressure to modernize its capabilities. Meanwhile, the space industry is undergoing an industrial reorganization, while space exploration, debris recycling and tourism open up new perspectives. Together with new client needs – like protection from cyber attacks – and the emergence of non-traditional competitors, these developments are putting intense pressure on existing players in the global defense and space value chain.
