Defence Systems and Infrastructures

Enhancing the safety and security of critical defence projects

Responding to constantly shifting geopolitical tensions and threats requires intelligent defence systems and infrastructures.
But as well as being highly technologically advanced, these systems must also be scalable, adaptable and fully interoperable.

Leading the way

As a trusted safety and security partner of several European defence ministries, Airbus Protect offers leading services to both governments and defence organisations. We focus on three key areas:

Nuclear deterrence

Mastering nuclear deterrence is key to maintaining national sovereignty. This is a strategic focus for European armed forces. Ensuring nuclear safety, security, availability and logistical support are day-to-day challenges for both defence officials and private sector players involved in upgrading and developing nuclear systems and infrastructures.

Airbus Protect sits at the core of this. Our experts are highly experienced in providing nuclear safety expertise, consultancy and feedback to all stakeholders.

Collaborative combat

Highly connected defence equipments are crucial to maintaining the upper hand in a fast-moving combat environment. True collaborative combat relies on platforms with strong interoperability and interconnection capabilities.

Thanks to our multi-disciplinary consultants and AI expertise, we’ve developed in-depth knowledge of these complex systems – including certification, modelling, deployment and obsolescence management for scalable system of systems. In particular, we’re renowned for our model-based system analysis expertise, which relies on powerful proprietary software tools.

Support to engineering

Ensuring safety, security, maintainability and availability should be at the centre of any new defence project.

With over three decades of experience in this area, our multidisciplinary teams are perfectly placed to support the engineers developing new defence infrastructure and systems – ensuring safety always comes first.

Why Airbus Protect?

As we work to enhance the safety and security of defence systems and infrastructures, the following considerations are paramount:

  • Optimising the readiness and availability of nuclear systems
  • Enhancing nuclear safety throughout the full system lifecycle
  • Creating highly interoperable collaborative combat platforms
  • Developing scalable system of system
  • Ensuring the safety and security of military infrastructures
