Innovation - We Develop Ground-Breaking Technologies and Solutions

Innovation is and has always been at the heart of what we do at Airbus. Our employees are passionate to create new product and services ideas, innovate technologies and transform business models that will positively impact the society and help to shape the future of Airbus. Over the last 30 years, Airbus has been a leader of innovation and development in the area of geospatial technology.


Airbus was a pioneer by creating the first commercially oriented satellite imagery company and has been fundamental in creating and developing the commercial satellite imagery business. Since then we have continuously pushed the boundaries and built the most comprehensive commercial satellite constellation available. And we continue to growing our assets with the future Pléiades Neo, CO3D and TerraSAR-X Neo missions. Our work also focusses on developing analytics capabilities, multi-intelligence fusion and correlation as well as artificial Intelligence. We are working in close partnerships with start-up, universities, SMEs and other partners across our markets to develop the solutions of the future.

We also offer an open innovation platform to create new applications or services using our satellite imagery. At Airbus, we are convinced that open innovation is the key to discover and develop new services and opportunities. This is why we have created this platform for developers, entrepreneurs, students,… and whoever willing to start using our data.
