National defence is a key sector of the economy ; in France this sector employs over 300 000 people (including indirect jobs), for a total turnover of 15 billion Euros. Source: DGA..

Within this sector, R & D and technological innovation are essential, especially to create ever more efficient electronic systems. These electronic systems can be found in conventional and deterrent weapons, in intelligence systems, in surveillance systems, in reconnaissance systems and finally in space programs.

A critical and severe environment, life equipment (30 years) and the high availability rate are the main technical specificities to consider. One must also keep in mind the need to reduce the overall cost of ownership for the armies.
