We rely on more than 50 years of experience in optronics and neutron technology to develop innovative and competitive solutions for our commercial and institutional customers.
As a subsidiary of the European leader in access to space, ArianeGroup, we are operationally independent. Our second shareholder is the French CEA (Commission on Atomic Energy).
We are a historical and strategic defence supplier, a characteristic that guarantees us a solid base of industrial activities, thereby affirming durability and reliability.
Our institutional clients' high level of requirements has led us to develop an extraordinary expertise that now benefits stakeholders in space, mining, industry and research. We preserve and enhance this exceptional technological know-how by occasionally participating in scientific programs that push the limits of the state of the art: the caesium atom clock Pharao, the seismometer of the Mars mission InSight, cells of Pockels for the Megajoule laser, etc.
Sodern's core business is the series production of star trackers that enable satellites to orient themselves precisely in space, and neutron systems for analysing and detecting materials.
To meet the expectations of changing markets, we set high competitive requirements for ourselves: the implementation of lean management, perfect understanding of our customers' needs, agility and optimisation of production costs are the commitments that allow us to maintain a competitive edge with a very high level of customer satisfaction and to consolidate our position as world leader in several markets.
