Defense

Improving the operational performance and energy resilience of the armed forces for optimum defense

We live in a changing world where Defense and Marine are one of the mainstays of life in society. The climate of uncertainty and the threats that have hung over the international environment since 2001 have not lessened.

Today, it has become essential to adapt the armed forces to technological developments by integrating new capabilities: robotics, cyber, artificial intelligence, predictive maintenance, simulation, energy performance, etc.

Clients are faced with the challenge of equipping themselves with cutting-edge technological and human resources to protect the population and the sovereignty of their territories by adapting, modernising and optimising their defense mechanisms.

EQUANS France is able to offer players in the fields of Defense and Marine solutions to reconcile:

The performance challenges faced by the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of the Interior or industrial players in these sectors are real commercial levers for EQUANS France, which can offer all of its industrial or service sector services in a package of integrated offers.
