  • 1 ONERA lifts the veil on 70 years of its history: 1996 to the present day - A period of major changes

    To address these new challenges, the French government sought to initiate new collaborative modes between public research and businesses, which in 2005 began to be manifested in the form of competitive clusters. Study and research would receive less funding from the major national agencies, which implied thematic collaborations combining different partners
  • 2 Which role Research & Technology must play to ensure France's continued stance as a major aerospace power ?

    On September 8 and 9, ONERA participate in the Summer Defense Conference, with Chairman and CEO Bruno Sainjon taking advantage of this opportunity to discuss the role that Research & Technology must play to ensure France's continued stance as a major aerospace power. The French (and European) aerospace industry is one of the increasingly rare industry sectors in which we still enjoy global status, with all that entails in terms of scientific, technological, industrial, economic and of course human challenges
  • 3 Onera Provides a Breakthrough in New Generation Aircraft Burner Operability

    The Tosca][ 1 program of the Astech 2 center, completed in late 2012, has led to major advances in the development of a new Snecma burner architecture; a technology that must replace conventional burners to comply with future emission standards for aircraft engines. It was a case of improving the operability of a TAPS (Twin Annular Pre Swirl) type chamber injection system developed by Snecma, designed to reduce cruising flight NOx emissions by 50 to 60 %. Research engineers at ONERA had a double challenge: on one hand, combustion stability and quality when idling and, on other hand, reigniting the engine at high altitude
  • 4 After the Velib', the Planelib'?

    The challenge: supplementing the multimodal transport of the future with an air link to provide greater flexibility and speed... "It must therefore be electrical." The other major issue is the degree of automation of this plane
