We are science-fiction writers
We bring imagination to life by pushing the boundaries of science.
We occasionally participate in extraordinary programmes, at the limits of scientific knowledge of humanity. The PHARAO caesium atom clock, to be installed on the International Space Station; the seismometer of the InSight mission, designed to study the seismology of the planet Mars, the Pockels cells for the Megajoule Laser are some examples.
Their common points: they are examples of technological prowess, enabling new scientific experiments to be carried out, and will undoubtedly be sources of new discoveries.
Innovation is critical to us and we constantly question paradigms. We also apply this state of mind, which governs the development of our products and has made some of our most remarkable technical achievements possible, to our industrial project. Thus, we focus our efforts on our tools and our production methods, which have allowed us to initiate major breakthroughs in terms of competitiveness and efficiency.
To root this aspect of our culture within our walls, and to remind ourselves that what's impossible today might not be tomorrow, our production spaces bear the names of science fiction authors.
