  • 1 At ONERA, a CNRS researcher involved with the Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2011

    The Nobel Prize for Chemistry 2011 was awarded to Dan Shechtman (Technion Institute, Israel) for his discovery of quasicrystals in 1982. The publication that made this discovery public, proposing the description of a type of structure that was considered impossible at the time, dates back to 1984 and was written by D Shetchman and three co- authors
  • 2 Nightglow - The light of the night

    Researchers at Onera now plan to: develop a camera that is sufficiently sensitive, light, manageable, uncooled and capable of exploiting the advantage of near infrared around 1 6 m. This first campaign devoted to the characterization of near-infrared nightglow will therefore have attained the first scientific objectives of this REI (a second campaign and modeling work are still planned)
  • 3 Reversed Time

    Today, researchers at Onera are using it to improve their testing systems in the electromagnetics field. With the increasing number of items of electronic equipment in civil and military equipment, checking the electromagnetic compatibility of the different systems is essential
  • 4 "Two in One" Calculations

    "Unfortunately, there is no universal calculation software", regrets François Xavier Roux, researcher at the ONERA" Modeling and Information Processing" Department (DTIM). "The fluid and mechanical structure calculations are already complex, and the same language isn't used in these fields, nor the same meshing (dividing space into small volumes, or elements) and it would thus be very complicated to create a new calculation code integrating both branches of physics"
  • 5 The ice hunt starts here

    "When the forms of ice are reproduced on reduced scale mockups, the aerodynamic degradations that are obtained are much greater than those observed at scale 1" explains Didier Gufford, researcher in the Physics and Instrumentation Department at Onera... Therefore, the researchers have had to find correspondences between the forms of ice at reduced scale and those at scale 1. In other words, find at what size the patterns of ice at reduced scale have the same effect as those at scale 1. To do this, the researchers at Onera, working with those at Nasa, have used the icing wind tunnel of the Glenn Center in Cleveland USA, and they have obtained scale 1 results on smaller aircraft profiles, which they were able to compare with the results on reduced scale profiles, and so establish correspondences
  • 6 Is there a pilot on board the plane?

    Researchers at ONERA are thinking about what an air transport system with no pilot and with no controller would be like. Their goal: to see what level of automation could be achieved in the future
  • 7 Alexandre Sauvage / Leosphere

    This relationship took on a new dimension when Jean Pierre Cariou, a researcher at Onera, joined us. It was a perfect transfer, as Onera has real client vision and knows how to put together a project
  • 8 An integrated team for nanotechnology research

    Details of this original approach that makes it possible to develop innovative new technologies, with Riad Haidar, researcher at ONERA (Palaiseau) and Jean Luc Pelouard, head of" the Device Physics" group at the CNRS / LPN (Marcoussis). Interview
  • 9 Death of Emmanuel Rosencher, ONERA's Scientific Director

    Physicist born in 1952 and died on 15 June 2013, Emmanuel Rosencher had been ONERA's Scientific Director since October 2010 and a professor at the École Polytechnique. Former student of the Ecole Polytechnique (1972) and the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications, he completed a PhD in applied mathematics in 1978. Researcher at the Laboratory of Solid State Physics of the Ecole Normale Supérieure from 1978 to 1979, he joined CNET in Grenoble (1979) first as a researcher and then as head of the Laboratory" Physics of microelectronic components." Thereafter, he joined Thomson-CSF (now Thales) as Head of the Laboratory of Physics
  • 10 ONERA and NASA co-publish a book on materials

    The book, co- edited by ONERA, NASA and Georgia Tech, contains four articles by ONERA researchers; this is the strongest representation... The articles written by ONERA researchers address issues such as fatigue, titanium aluminides, additive manufacturing, and thermal protection. The special issue of the international journal" Materials at High Temperature" with the title" High Temperature Materials for Aerospace Applications" has just been published
