paris air show | JUNE 19-25

Bring your vision into focus.

Capgemini is excited to participate in the 54th edition of the Paris International Air Show. Connect with aerospace and defense industry leaders from around the globe and learn about the latest technological innovations.

Where can you get the best view of the airfield? Reserve your space at the Capgemini Chalet.

Aerospace and defense leaders are facing a future that is both uncertain and constrained. Geopolitical conflicts and ongoing effects of the pandemic are destabilizing markets end to end. However, we at Capgemini believe that a future of uncertainty is a future of opportunity.

We see a future where executives can be visionaries, tapping into today’s innovations and technologies to utilize the convergence of products, software, data, and services. At Capgemini, we call this Intelligent Industry – the next phase of business transformation cutting across all facets of customer interaction, business operations, R&D, engineering, manufacturing, and supply chains.

We have selected five themes for the five days of Paris Air Show:

Monday June 19

Intelligent support and services

Explore Intelligent Industry through the lens of intelligent support and services. Smart supply chain and intelligent manufacturing affect the very foundation of aerospace and defense – if you only attend one day, make it this one.

  • Smart supply chain
  • Intelligent new plant

Tuesday June 20

Explore our demos

During the week, our experts will present our latest innovations for the aerospace and defense industry, including:

Explore the digital twin of a medical delivery drone, from specification to initial prototype.

Our research & innovation teams have been collaborating for 2 years alongside EuroAirship to take up an unprecedented challenge: circumnavigating the world in a rigid airship powered by sustainable energy.
Tracking of objects (geolocation of goods, logistics, traceability of physical flows, automatic inventory) and people, for security (geolocation, evacuation procedure, isolated worker tracking, access control and gas detection).

Our Lab in India helps our customers achieve 30% energy savings by monitoring and managing their energy performance.

Experience our virtual chalet, a true replica and digital twin of our physical chalet at the Paris Air Show 2023.

    Aerospace and defense

    We bring together the capabilities to reimagine the way A&D leaders design, engineer, manufacture, and service complex products – harnessing today’s technologies to launch into a successful tomorrow.

    Digital twins in aerospace and defense

    Of the technological advancements on the digital frontier in recent years, digital twin technology has been one of the most talked about.
