The Black-Out Challenge is an innovation contest organized by Safran Electronics & Defense for all students. What's the idea? Since 2019 and the first edition, Safran has been calling on the student community to find solutions to help humanity cope with natural and technological disasters (solar eruptions, loss of satellite and GPS systems, blindness of part of the population, cyber risks...). This 4th edition deals with the prevention of future risks and the development of more efficient, environmentally friendly and secure aeronautics.

Do you think you are up to the challenge?

To participate, you need to be a college student and to form a team of 2-5 people, or to join one of the teams already created, and then to apply here. You will then have to propose your project before November 13, 2022. A jury of Safran experts will select the five finalist teams. They will have to defend their projects in front of Safran Electronics & Defense top management at SafranTech to have a chance to win one of the grand prizes at stake.
