  • 1 SONDRA: a successful radar cooperation between France and Singapore

    SONDRA is a joint laboratory involving ONERA Supelec (Ecole Supérieure d' Electricité -France), National University of Singapore (NUS) and DSO a Singapore's national defense R&D organization... This workshop has vividly demonstrated that Singapore is progressing well on topics related to new concepts of radar, thanks to its French partners, not only in terms of research but also in terms of transition to R&D, as shown by the completion of the CARGESE antenna (see photo)
  • 2 Death of Emmanuel Rosencher: one year already

    Despite having joined Onera only a few weeks ago, I feel how intact the memory of the man who placed his scientific excellence and incredible enthusiasm at the service of our organization remains a year later. This is why I feel that it is important to pay tribute to the great scientist and man that he was
  • 3 Which role Research & Technology must play to ensure France's continued stance as a major aerospace power ?

    Thirdly, it is a highly paradoxical situation for ONERA to have only this single guaranteed source of funds, from defense, when both national (National Research Agency funding, for instance) and European rules mandate that an organization such as ONERA self finance part of the civil research relevant to these agencies
  • 4 Alexandre Sauvage / Leosphere

    This collaboration is so close that a researcher from the organization has joined the SME... The fact that lidar takes measurements in real-time gives it a considerable advantage over weather balloons, which are released only twice per day... "There is no competition in this niche yet, but it is only a matter of time, and we must continue to innovate", he stresses
  • 5 Graphene, a Material of Great Promise

    Onera is also working on infrared detection, which involves optics work at the nanometric scale 1. Graphene may be able to play a role here, but we have only just started this work... Then there is the fastidious work of sorting, under the microscope, to only keep the single layers... "This group has created a real solid international scientific community, with a lot of added value in comparison with standard partnerships: the training of researchers, help for joint work and exchanges between teams, sharing of knowledge, thorough discussions at conferences, the organization of thematic schools for young researchers, international conferences and workshops, help for students so they can attend conferences and promote their work, etc." according to those running it
  • 6 Graphene, carbon nanotubes, microstructure research ... Spotlight on an eminent French scientist, Annick Loiseau

    Annick is one of only two women on the committee, along with a Spanish colleague... The group comprises a broad range of members, including university labs, CNRS research units, major research organizations such as Onera and CEA (French atomic energy commission) and industry
  • 7 Drones: en route for autonomy

    But a number of research organizations, including Onera, are trying to make them more autonomous, in order to increase their operational effectiveness... Doesn't the autonomy issue only apply to military or armed drones?... If drones are to become more autonomous, they have to be capable of gathering information on their environment, understanding this information, and then reacting to what they understand, even if it's only to decide that they still need more information before acting!
