PresSense, the first connected aircraft tire

PresSense, the connected aircraft tire developed by Michelin Aircraft Tyre and Safran Landing Systems, uses innovative technology to measure aircraft tire pressures and facilitate ground maintenance operations for airlines.

Electric taxiing program launched

Electric taxiing, for greener aircraft

The electric taxiing system on which Safran Landing Systems is working is destined for the next generation of short- and medium-haul aircraft and will allow the aircraft to move around the tarmac without using their engines or towing tractors. The result will be a reduced fuel consumption of up to 4% and a significant reduction in CO2, nitrogen oxide (NOX) and noise emissions.

Hyperloop: from plane to the train of the future

Developed by Safran Landing Systems and the American start-up Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Hyperloop is a vehicle concept which has the capacity to transport passengers or freight in capsules propelled by linear induction motors moving inside low-pressure tubes. It combines three of Safran Landing Systems’ flagship technologies: electric braking, the electric extension/retraction system and the electric taxiing system. Faster, more efficient and less expensive than any other means of transport, Hyperloop is also environment-friendly, as it would be supplied with electricity and would use solar energy.
