Airbus is the leading aircraft manufacturer offering the most modern, comprehensive and efficient passenger aircraft family on the more than 100-seat market, while its military division is the global leader for transport, tanker and surveillance airlifters ranging from three to 45 tonnes of payload. Since its creation in 1970, Airbus has sold over 10,200 aircraft. Today, some 7,000 aircraft are in operation with more than 430 customers and operators. Airbus has acquired a large expertise and is continuously carrying out research and technical activities, in particular in the field of advanced avionics systems and software. In a context of strong competition in the aeronautics domain, the techniques, methods and tools supporting the critical embedded systems and software development are considered as key enablers. Thats why Airbus is involved in different European and national initiatives such as Artemis/EICOSE, IRT and in collaborative projects like TOPCASED, OPEES, CESAR, INTERESTED, Projet_P, in order to strongly push the emergence of new software architecture and techniques, of modelling approaches and integrated tools for avionics system development.
Airbus is an EADS company.

INCHRON offers design and test solutions for real-time critical software in embedded systems. The INCHRON Tool-Suite enables users to develop embedded systems in shorter time, at lower cost, achieving higher quality. Developers and architects model, simulate and validate the real-time behavior of networked embedded systems accomplishing early performance analysis. For years, INCHRON's methodologies and tools have been successfully used in numerous projects with major OEMs and suppliers across all industries. The real-time simulator chronSIM improves in-depth understanding of the temporal behavior by highlighting e.g. timing effects on system states and data flow in various diagrams. chronVAL validation software analyzes the best and worst case scenarios based on formal mathematical methods. The combination of simulation and validation gives keen insight into the real-time behavior of embedded systems and networks. Since 2010 INCHRON and IBM are Business Partners. IBM is offering the complete range of INCHRONs tools and services. By integrating INCHRONs solutions with the IBM Rational software development platform, INCHRON and IBM offer customers a unique tool suite for the development of embedded systems. The greatest improvements are with regards to model-based development where timing and performance considerations can now be taken into account at a much earlier stage of the development process.
Rational solutions help organizations achieve their business goals. Rational software enables organizations to automate and integrate the core business process of software development. Rational products, services, and best practices power the IBM Software Development Platform, the premier platform for teams who discover, develop, and deploy software assets in business applications, embedded systems, and software products. This modular and complete solution enables teams to adopt a business-driven, collaborative development approach based on open standards, including the Eclipse open source framework and Jazz.
Rational software helps you deliver greater value from your investments in software and systems. It enables organizations to seize business opportunities, achieve precision in desired business outcomes, and execute with reduced risk and cost.

ALTRAN is the European leader in innovation and high technology consulting. The Group employs 18,000 consultants worldwide (1,700 for ALTRAN Sud-Ouest) who represent the entire range of engineering disciplines, broken down into three major business lines: technology and R&D consulting; organisation and information systems consulting; and strategy and management consulting. ALTRAN works with companies throughout the innovation process, including technology intelligence, applied basic research, management consulting, industrial systems engineering and information systems. They operate in most industries, particularly the automotive, aeronautics, space and telecommunications sectors. ALTRAN is also involved in research activities and launched ALTRAN Research in January 2009 with the aim of strengthening ALTRAN's positioning in innovation consulting. Our cross-curricular and transverse research is based on three themes that we believe are essential in order to tackle complexity: Sustainable Development (SD), Advanced Products & Solutions (APS) and Management & Performance (M&P). http://www.altran-so.fr/
The French Space Agency, CNES, was founded in 1961 as a state-owned agency responsible for shaping and implementing French Space policy on national, european and international levels. The agencys expertise covers every aspect of space technology and its mission is to invent the space systems of the future. CNES deploys its resources for five types of programme: the Earth and the environment, civil applications, space sciences, security and defence and access to space. To accomplish its missions, CNES operates four centres which together employ more than 2400 people, engineers, technicians and administrative staff.
The Aerospace Valley World Competitiveness Cluster allies the Midi-Pyrenees & Aquitaine regions to constitute Europes leading pool of jobs in the field of aeronautics, space and embedded systems. The purpose of the Aerospace Valley cluster is to grow jobs in its regions in the aeronautics, space and embedded systems sectors. 11,000 new jobs have already been created in the last three years (INSEE figures).
In embedded systems, the clusters development priorities focus on:
- the dependability and reliability of embedded systems at all levels (software/hardware)
- performance, modularity and the quality of mechanical, electrical-IT parts and energy development
- systems diagnosis and prognosis
- new modes of human-system interaction and inter-systems communication
- the design of smaller, less expensive and more powerful components in conjunction with NanoInnov, a major program
Embedded systems also offer numerous opportunities for diversification, particularly in the areas of health, energy and home automation.
