Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The MOLIERE laboratory is aimed at creating high value-added materials for aviation through a multi-scale approach integrating theoretical, digital and experimental aspects.

It is backed by the French Defense Innovation Agency and has been established for four years. There is also a possibility for the MOLIERE laboratory’s renewal.

The laboratory will be used to design new materials for future aircraft in acoustics, electromagnetism and anti-icing.

Dassault Aviation chairman and CEO Eric Trappier said: “For the aviation industry, mastering innovative materials is a key differentiating factor on many commercial and defence products.

“Whether for the internal acoustics of our Falcons (absorbent materials), the stealth technology of our combat aircraft (materials for electromagnetic discretion) or the safety of all our aircraft (anti-icing materials), we must absolutely keep our lead.”

Dassault stated that the MOLIERE joint laboratory will use the simulation, manufacturing, as well as multi-scale characterisation resources of two research laboratories, namely the ‘Strasbourg Institute of Materials Physics and Chemistry (IPCMS, CNRS/University of Strasbourg)’ and ‘Jean Lamour Institute (IJL, CNRS/University of Lorraine)’.

IPCMS laboratory has expertise in nanomaterials and nanoscience with main activities in electromagnetism while IJL is known for its expertise in nanomaterials and metamaterials.

CNRS chairman and CEO Antoine Petit said: “I am very pleased to see more than 25 years of scientific cooperation with Dassault Aviation materialise again today, this time with the creation of a joint research laboratory.

“This signature is part of the steps being taken by CNRS to strengthen our relationships with businesses which particularly involve over 170 joint laboratories in activity, like the MOLIERE joint lab established today.”
