Dassault Aviation gets start-ups looking into the maintenance of the future

Dassault Aviation organised its second "innovathon" in Bordeaux on 7th and 8th February. The theme for this edition was the maintenance of the future. The aircraft manufacturer launched a call for applications to start-ups who had to look into five priority MOC areas and so improve operational availability: predictive maintenance, 3D printing, artificial intelligence and big data, robotics and training.

Ten companies were selected to take part in the competition and were monitored and received advice from mentors from Dassault Aviation following selection in order to best target requirements and take advantage of feedback. Over the 2 days in Bordeaux the participants were able to visit the assembly lines and the maintenance hangars and were able to use a Rafale and a Falcon to test their solutions. Following the competition, the start-ups only had a few minutes to convince the jury.

The first price, which came with a cheque for EUR8000, was awarded to Bassetti from Grenoble, which presented a predictive maintenance solution. The group, which specialises in "publishing and integrating business applications for industry", already has a strong worldwide presence in the aerospace industry, with companies such as Liebherr, Safran, Aircelle, Airbus, Meggit, Nyco and Thales Alenia Space among its customers.

The special "prix du coeur" was awarded to Tamaplace, which proposed a "synchronous exchange system between the technicians at the plane and a remote support centre". The system would be "usable directly, with a wide range of functions, all in real-time", stated General Michel Rouat, commander of the French air force's weapons systems and logistics air brigade. He also indicated that he had identified eight projects likely to have a "definite use" for mechanics.
