In military aeronautics, cuts to the French budget have been offset by new opportunities internationally, with positive perspectives for some of the Group’s main clients.
A historic contract with India will involve multi-billion spending on Rafale aircraft that could have positive implications for some of the Group’s main clients: Dassault, Thales, Safran. ALTEN has prepared for this by signing a deal with an Indian company to meet offset challenges. In the security area, ALTEN has been partnering Morpho (Safran group) in an ambitious biometric identification project in India.
In France, the Balard programme – to create a new HQ for the Armed Forces in 2015 – allows ALTEN to position its offering in securitisation of sites or networks and cyber-security.
