A "bridge" between research & technology and design, AER oversees a complex range of highly technical processes.

AER’s business has three main strands, covering the whole life-cycle of a system:

  • products;
  • bespoke designs;
  • advice.

ALCEN works in four domains: defence & security, energy, medical and aeronautics.

Its ambition is to establish a constant innovation policy in these domains, primarily applied to its own products and services.

Wherever possible, they offer innovative solutions.

It organizes its teams in structures that are both independent and coordinated, set up around top-level, fully accountable members of staff.
