Developing sustainable aircraft, connecting people, observing and understanding Earth, and making the world a safer place: EADS does things that matter. Ever since its inception in 2000, EADS has constantly drawn from the strength that comes from integration. The Group brings together businesses that are market leaders in their own right, forming a collective driven by a single vision.
EADS includes Airbus as the leading global manufacturer of the most innovative commercial and military aircraft, with Airbus Military covering tanker, transport and mission aircraft. Astrium, the European leader in space programmes and the third biggest space provider worldwide, is active in all space activities, from large-scale space systems to satellite services.
Cassidian, worldwide leader in state-of-the-art solutions for armed forces and civil security worldwide, also makes EADS the major partner in the Eurofighter consortium and a stakeholder in the missile systems provider MBDA. Eurocopter is the world’s primary helicopter manufacturer in the civil sector, offering the largest civil and military helicopter range in the world.
EADS — its people and its innovations — plays a role in creating some of the world’s biggest success stories, helping to make tomorrow’s technology a reality.
