This domain covers systems and what is usually designated as Information and Communication Science and Technology (ICST), the main components of which are automation, signal and image processing, robotics, numerical simulation, design and automation of systems and processes, information systems engineering, and knowledge and cognitive engineering.
A large proportion of the research work targets the design of aeronautical and aerospace systems, on the one hand, of defense, surveillance and security systems, on the other hand, and the deployment of these systems in complex missions; the processing of large data volumes from onboard sensors; and generating know-how about large-scale phenomena. The generic character of the research work gives it major diversification potential, particularly in general transport and production systems.
This work targets - by way of innovative digital methods and techniques and convergences between modeling, simulation and data - progress for attaining new levels of intrinsic performance in the systems under consideration. It also relates to issues pertaining to the integration of the research work in information and communication systems, to the needs for interactivity with users, as well as to the security, safety, autonomy and coordination of systems.
Much of this research work gives rise to experimental developments (mini-drones and UAVs, terrestrial and underwater robots, piloting aid interfaces, smart sensor networks, etc.). Others are the subject of software platform developments (air traffic, battle lab, MDO design, etc.) for producing digital mockups and assessing operational performance through physical simulation.
