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.

e-TAXI: the new electric taxiing system

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.

    Parity among top 10 earners


According to the French law of September 5, 2018, and its application decree of January 8, 2019, on "Freedom to choose your professional future" (Liberté de choisir son avenir professionnel), companies have to measure five gender equality indicators and publish their overall score. The primary aim of this law is to eliminate compensation discrepancies between men and women.

Furthermore, the law to accelerate economic and professional equality between men and women from December 24, 2021 (called the Rixain Law) created a new requirement to have women in the executive bodies of companies with over 1,000 employees. Within Safran, the policy on the professional advancement of women, their access to positions of authority, the identification of talent, and assistance with professional development are priorities that we have also extended to our relations with engineering schools and universities in the past few years.

Within Safran Landing Systems, the indicators relating to gaps in representation between women and men in positions of greater responsibility are as follows in 2023:

  • Percentage of senior executives who are women and men, respectively: 20,7% / 79,3%
  • Percentage of members of executive bodies who are women and men, respectively: 27,3% / 72,7%
