The managers and technicians in the Design offices and test centers
- develop design technologies and baselines of use for current and future programs
- prepare and justify product definitions (aircraft and systems) and their future upgrades.
- contribute to steering product strategy.
Extensive modeling, simulation and testing is carried out to define the airframe and on-board systems (auxiliaries, avionics, flight controls) and the support products (those which enable the aircraft to be deployed and maintained at the customer).
