    NBAA, Orlando, FL (USA), Tuesday, October 21, 2014 At this year’s NBAA business aviation trade show and exhibition in Orlando, Florida (USA), Sagem (Safran) is introducing a prototype of its new active side stick unit (SSU) for civil airplanes and helicopters. Incorporating a number of proprietary Sagem innovations, this side stick controller features very high dispatch reliability, a robust design that stands up to all types of contingencies and an optimized architecture supporting the real-time adjustment of force feel laws. Thanks to its stick shaker / Stick pusher function and the fine synchronization between all side stick units, this system greatly facilitates pilot/co-pilot coordination and the management of stressful situations. Sagem’s SSU has been tested over the last few months in close collaboration with airline pilots and test pilots from major airplane and helicopter manufacturers, confirming its perfect match with flight safety and crew training requirements. One of the world’s leading producers of flight controls, Sagem contributes to some of the most innovative aircraft of the century, including the Airbus Helicopters NH90, Embraer KC-390, Dassault Aviation Falcon 5X and Comac ARJ21 Xiangfeng. Sagem’s active side stick unit is being showcased at Safran’s NBAA booth, with dynamic demonstrations in a flight simulator featuring a full glass cockpit. **** Sagem, a high-tech company of Safran, holds world or European leadership positions in optronics, avionics, electronics and safety-critical software for both civil and military markets. Sagem is the No. 1 company in Europe and No. 3 worldwide for inertial navigation systems (INS) used in air, land and naval applications. It is also the world leader in helicopter flight controls and the European leader in optronics and tactical UAV systems. Operating across the globe through Safran, Sagem and its subsidiaries employ 7,500 people in Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Sagem is the commercial name of the company Sagem Défense Sécurité. For more information :

    Paris, October 16, 2014 The Safran Aerospace Museum in Réau, near Paris, officially opened its new Space wing today, in a ceremony attended by Jean-Luc Marx, Prefect of the Seine et Marne department, and Jean-Paul Herteman, Chairman and CEO of Safran. During the recent European Heritage Days on the weekend of September 20-21, the museum welcomed nearly 4,000 visitors. © Eric Drouin The new permanent exhibition space, covering more than 500 square meters (5,400 sq ft), is dedicated to launcher and satellite propulsion, and recounts Safran’s contribution to the French and European space programs. Safran wanted to spotlight the people and technologies that have made it the world’s second leading company for cryogenic and solid propulsion and Number 1 in Europe for plasma (electric) propulsion. © Eric Drouin The new wing is organized around a scenic display that shows the evolution of launcher and satellite propulsion, while also highlighting Safran’s employees who have contributed to the conquest of space. "We want to pay tribute to their key roles," said Safran Chairman and CEO during the inauguration ceremony. "Safran is fully aware of how the accomplishments of the past ensure a strong future for the Group. Above all, we realize what we owe to the daring industrial visionaries who built the foundations and enabled us to grow and progress." © Eric Drouin The creation of the new Space wing demanded a comprehensive inventory, extensive research and the acquisition of new collections. The museum was able to add new pieces to its collection, including an MPS solid booster from Europe’s Ariane 5 launcher, the combustion chamber from the Véronique sounding rocket, and the fairing from the Vesta sounding rocket. The exhibition was designed for the general public, enabling them to understand how satellites and launchers are powered, along with several basic scientific concepts. The exhibition is organized in three main sections: The birth of space propulsion in people’s imagination – literature and legend. The development of launch vehicle propulsion, from the Second World War to Ariane, The history of satellite propulsion. For the first time, the museum has set up a special part of the exhibition for children (10 and older), with appropriate content allowing these youngsters to understand the scientific principles and challenges of space propulsion. © Eric Drouin To mark this new wing, the Safran Aerospace Museum will be open to the public on the weekends of October 18 and 19, and 25 and 26, from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. **** The Safran Air & Space Museum offers a unique collection of more than 100 airplane, helicopter and rocket engines. Most of the pieces on display were restored by the Association of Friends of the Safran Museum (for aircraft engines) and by former employees of the Société Européenne de Propulsion (SEP, now part of the Safran group), for rocket engines. Reflecting the long history of the Safran group, these powerplants tell the story of our conquest of air and space. The Museum offers visitors dynamic, interactive exhibitions, with audiovisual systems providing an entertaining, informative complement to the historic objects on display. In addition to these legendary engines, the Safran Museum also presents a selection of the aircraft equipment manufactured by the Group, including landing gear and braking systems, and some of the prestigious products made by predecessor companies, from luxury cars, to motorcycles, to pressure cookers. Safran is a leading international high-technology group with three core businesses: Aerospace (propulsion and equipment), Defence and Security. Operating worldwide, the Group has 66,300 employees and generated sales of 14.7 billion euros in 2013*. Working alone or in partnership, Safran holds world or European leadership positions in its core markets. The Group invests heavily in Research & Development to meet the requirements of changing markets, including expenditures of 1.8 billion Euros in 2013. Safran is listed on Euronext Paris and is part of the CAC40 index. * Sales in 2013 restated for the impacts of IFRS11 amounted to 14.4 billion euros.
