Safran is an expert in the fields of embedded systems and in-flight and on-ground safety, developing high-tech equipment and systems that perform essential functions on board aircraft.
The Group provides a wide range of products that include safety systems, evacuation (slides, emergency arresting systems, oxygen masks…), electrical systems (electrical power management, lighting…), control systems (fuel management, telemetry), water and waste management systems (toilets systems, fluid management systems).
These products are used in commercial aircraft and helicopters, business and regional aircraft as well as military aircraft. Safran's equipment is featured on the Airbus A350 XWB and A320neo, the Airbus H160 helicopter, the Boeing 737 MAX, the Sukhoi Superjet 100, the COMAC C919 as well as on Dassault Aviation's Rafale.
World #1 in evacuation systems
As the world leader in evacuation slides, the Group equips more than one out of every two commercial aircraft. It was notably selected by the Chinese manufacturer COMAC to equip its new single-aisle aircraft, the C919. In addition to providing evacuation slides, the Group also supplies life rafts and lifejackets. These evacuation products are also highly popular in business aviation: Bombardier has chosen Safran to equip the Challenger 350, 650, Global 5000 and 6000 with rafts and vests.
