- Who we are
ONERA is the French aeronautics, space and defense research lab.
A multi-disciplinary organization with experimental means unique in Europe,
ONERA brings expertise to government programs, both institutional and industrial.
- What we do
Research at ONERA meets the major challenges of the aerospace and defense industries.
It is the only organization in France gathering all the knowledge and skills in these areas.
ONERA Gives Today’s Innovative Small and Medium-Size Enterprises (SME) Access to its Store of Knowledge and Test Facilities
Furthermore, the scientific discoveries made by ONERA that have translated into successful aerospace programs, can be applied to other sectors as well. A number of leading companies know this. They have what we call the “ONERA reflex”, meaning that whenever a new need arises, they first check to see if the solution is not already available in ONERA toolbox!
Our task now is to let SMEs know that we may have just the solution they need. We are taking a very proactive stance to spread the word, based on a carefully thought-out initiative.
