Customer challenges and needs

Our clients are faced with the challenge of managing the space environment and developing observation, intelligence, surveillance and control capacities in air space. To address these issues of national sovereignty, aviators need reliable partners in order to get reliable information and operational equipment and to act effectively.

A preferred partner of large government clients and industrial project managers, Equans, through its specialist subsidiary Ineo Defense, designs, implements and deploys information and communication systems appropriate to the needs of Defence and national security, from expression of the need through to operational maintenance and intelligence. We also help to implement availability contracts with performance agreements for aircraft (commitment to flight hours), equipment or combat systems, or even for the management of consumables and/or repairs.
