SMART
INDUSTRY

Technology now allows manufacturers to offer complex, connected and high-performance products and systems, such as critical or embedded systems, integrating, for example, interconnectivity or “smart product” type capabilities. They equip themselves with advanced technologies such as AI or edge computing to develop their own diagnosis and know how to take into account strong constraints in terms of space or weight gain, improved performance or environmental impact, increase in strength and durability or safety in use.

It is thus possible to ensure both a minimal response time and the accuracy of the information transmitted by a complex sensor, while optimizing energy consumption, physical and thermal resistance, volume, external accessibility, safety, maintenance, reliability, precision. and availability.

Modeling and design address “systems of systems”, a set of components and reliable bricks whose reusability rate is as optimal as possible in order to reduce recovery and adaptation costs. This is facilitated by the deployment of design and production tools and processes providing this system approach, collaborative work and modularity of test systems and strategies.

Operating such systems is made possible by the simultaneous development of tools capable of simulating their production, operation, uses or pre- or post-development wear, testing and validating them, supervising them in nominal or disturbed operation. , and to analyze the renderings precisely and quickly. In particular, they allow developments that are more respectful of our planet, by maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing waste and polluting emissions.

Digital technologies impose a major change in operational and organizational models, the implementation of “smart factories” thus offering an extraordinary field of innovation, progress and growth.

Astek carries out and optimizes the engineering and manufacturing processes of innovative and high-performance products.

Astek is designing and building a system for Thales to identify friendly and enemy aircraft, and to determine their heading and distance, for use on French armed forces aircraft.

The equipment designed, embarked in various aircraft, complies with DO 178C civilian standards, ensures the competitiveness of the project, and is adapted to several digital target maps.

Astek ensures the implementation of new functionalities by carrying out software specifications, detailed design, development, testing and auditing and quality control.

 

Astek is carrying out the system engineering for the C2 command and control center of MBDA’s anti-ship firing facilities.

The solution designed offers sophisticated HMIs, at the heart of the weapon systems, capable of adapting to different operational needs and to the evolution of means and technologies.

Astek specifies, models and validates the functional and hardware architecture of the C2 center and its “black box” and “white box” subsystems for use in operational and non-operational phases.

 

Astek is developing the design platform for naval propulsion reactors for the CEA, involving a coupling between the neutronics code and the thermo-hydraulics code.

Astek ensures the porting of the NARTHEX scheme on the CORPUS platform and consolidates the developments of CORPUS interfaces in charge of the supervision of the codes and their coupling.

Following the permanent and/or transient coupling calculations in the new environment and the comparison with the previous results, Astek carries out a test base and freezes the validated version.

 

Astek is developing C2 command and control centers for ArianeGroup, as part of its ballistic missile defense, deterrence and space operations activities.

The solution includes a set of simulation and analysis tools to support operational concepts and adapt to new technologies.

Astek contributes to the development of products, software forge and procedures and provides acceptance, integration, validation and user support activities.

 

Astek is developing for Thales a high sensitivity infrared vision module that improves the vision of aircraft pilots in degraded conditions (darkness, snow, fog, smoke, fire…).

The solution allows the pilot and co-pilot helmets to interact with FPGAs, 8 cameras, adaptation cards and an inertial unit.

Astek specifies, designs and validates the embedded software (UML model), the image processing algorithms, the control/command interface and integrates it with the computer and the cameras.

 

Astek conducts mechanical studies on the problems of cracking of the frames of double-deck TGV engines for Alstom and designs the replacement engine frame.

The technical file produced ensures a reinforced level of safety for the TGV, a capitalized knowledge on the causes and mechanisms of cracking and an optimized production time.

Astek’s design office is responsible for mechanical design, CATIA pre-calculation, mechanical stress calculation, engine environment study and design of the study frame.

 

The Astek Competence Center participates in the design, development and validation of the prototypes of the new Valeo Iluminación catalog of vehicle lighting elements.

Astek designs, develops and validates the prototypes of the new catalog, improving vehicle visibility, driver safety and energy consumption.

The catalog adapts to new regulations and technologies that offer the possibility of adapting lighting to the environment (LED rear lights, People LED, Full LED headlights, etc.).

 

Astek is mass-producing for Alstom an industrial connected object (IoT) that collects information from bus and tramway ticket counters, in order to fight against fraud.

The product, EN 50155 compliant and secured by private LoraWAN, collects information without altering the behavior of the farebox, by analyzing only its lights and buzzer.

Astek designs, prototypes and industrializes the electronic boards, then mass-produces and integrates them into the composters before testing them on site.
