For over 40 years, the company CILAS has developed recognised expertise in laser and optical technologies. Today, CILAS develops, industrialises and markets a wide range of products and systems using these high technologies.
Defence and civil and military security, scientific and industrial instrumentation, cutting-edge optical components and major scientific laser programmes are its main markets.
With half of its turnover being generated by direct exports, CILAS is furthering its international development while continuing to develop and improve the latest technologies for future products designed to meet emerging needs.
Constituted in 2002 by the merger of the CILAS coatings laboratory with HighWave in Marseilles, the centre has over 20 years experience in the study and production of coatings for aerospace, military and laser applications in a host of scientific and industrial sectors.
CILAS optical ceramics activity is based in the Limoges Ester Technopole and benefits from the physical proximity to other companies working in innovative ceramics technologies.
