EADS’ comprehensive patent portfolio enables manufacturers in the automobile and surface transportation industry – as well as their equipment suppliers – to improve productivity, enhance quality, reduce time-to-market and optimize the production life cycle.
These technologies offer “bumper to bumper” solutions that range from high-efficiency joining processes, advanced alloys and proven composite production techniques to innovative wiring and connector solutions, holographic displays and on-board guidance systems.
Offered by the corporate-level EADS Technology Licensing initiative, the company’s patent portfolio is backed by the resources of its divisions and operations: Airbus, a global leader in commercial and military aircraft; Eurocopter, the no. 1 civilian helicopter manufacturer; Cassidian, a reference in state-of-the-art solutions for security applications, defence systems and military aircraft; Astrium, the third largest provider of satellites, launchers and space systems; and EADS Innovation Works, the company’s research and development arm.
The worldwide resources of EADS are available to facilitate low-risk implementation of licensed technologies by its partners, with the ability to provide engineering support and training, as well assist in establishing processes and procedures.
