Technology First

In this edition of Imagine 360, we discuss the developments that Airbus is bringing to market and how we continue to help our customers effectively manage new and existing challenges.

We announce our latest collaboration with the French Armed Forces, highlighting the recent conference that brought together a range of defence-related entities to discuss our SI Geode 4D information system. We examine IMINT, the practice of using satellite imagery as an intelligence source, and how our OneAtlas platform is driving interest in the new opportunities offered through this powerful online tool.

We also present two recent case studies, explaining how Airbus is making communication easier with automatic translation tools, and how we are supporting the fight against drug trafficking.
