LE BOURGET - Paris (23 JUNE 2023)

SOLCERA's President, Mr. Lisle, was honored to stand alongside the French Prime Minister, Mme Elisabeth BORNE, during her visit to the International Paris Air Show.
We would like to thank NAE (Normandie AeroSpace) for their excellent organization of the Paris Air Show!

Minister of the Armed Forces, M. Sébastien LECORNU (07 APRIL 2023)

Solcera had the honor of receiving a visit from the Minister of the Armed Forces, Mr. Sébastien LECORNU, to ensure that the France Relance plan meets the expectations of Norman companies that have benefited from it. As the Ministry of Armed Forces is about to present a budget of 413 billion euros to Parliament for the period 2024-2030, which is 40% more than in the previous military programming law for 2019-2025 (295 billion euros), Sébastien Lecornu's visit carries great significance. The Minister does not hide the importance of the stakes involved.

The Secretary General for Investment, Mr Bruno Bonnell, and the Prefect of Eure (department in Normandy), Mr Simon BABRE, accompanied by several economic and territorial actors, visited Solcera on December 14, 2022 as part of a two-day trip to Normandy, during which they were able to see the interactivity and complementarity of all partners from the economy and industry for the benefit of Normandy.

On this occasion, they were able to visit our production in Evreux of technical ceramics, used for the ballistic protection of helicopters in the field of defense, as well as for sensors in aeronautics and space, or for the manufacture of spray nozzles for agriculture.
The visit was part of the France 2030 investment plan, which aims to sustainably transform key sectors of the national economy through technological innovation.

Solcera has the ambition to open up to the advanced optics market and has invested in a new industrial production line for high-performance transparent ceramics.

marché de l'optique avancée
  • Since 2004, we have developed and acquired a recognized expertise in the field of transparent ceramics. These transparent ceramics with their promising performance are used as replacement for glass and sapphire in optical applications where these other materials have their limitations in performance.
  • In July 2022, we integrated the equipment necessary for the industrialization of transparent ceramics manufacturing processes. In particular, a recently installed 82m² clean room will permit a five-fold increase in the current production capacity.
  • This project is part of a long-term perspective: 11 people have been recruited in 2021, creating qualified jobs and involving the entire industrial environment (suppliers and subcontractors), as well as the local economy. This recruitment plan will be continued over the coming years.

Solcera is determined to become a unique center of excellence in this field in Europe and a major player on the global market

Solcera is proud to announce the creation of its subsidiary in Spain, Solcera Iberica.

In this way, Solcera will develop and promote its projects and activities in the Spanish market, especially with highly engineered solutions adapted to the most demanding high-tech sectors.
In this way, the Solcera group can also strengthen its position and presence in Europe in the defense sector.
Thanks to our office in Barcelona, availability, responsiveness and communication with the local market will be considerably improved.

La mission SYRACUSE

Associated with the SYRACUSE

The Solcera teams are proud to be associated with the SYRACUSE 4A mission, a geostationary satellite launch dedicated to secure communications, operated by Ariane Espace last October. There were four engines on board with brazed ceramics and sub-assemblies, manufactured in our plant in Moissy-Cramayel (77). A great performance that demonstrates once again Solcera's ability to respond to extremely demanding environments in terms of temperature, vibration and ultra-high vacuum.

Salon SVTM à Marseille

Solcera will be present at the SVTM exhibition which will take place in Marseille on November 24 and 25, 2021.
Meet our Solcera sales and technical teams on our booth N°11.

Salon à Madrid

The Madrid show

As a first-time exhibitor at a Spanish defence event, we were finally able to attend the Madrid show, which had been postponed twice since November 2020.
These three days of FEINDEF from 3 to 5 November 2021 were a complete success with a great dynamic for the Spanish defence industry and armed forces, as well as for Solcera.

SPINELL Defense Technology Project: development of a cutting-edge armor material

Led by Solcera, an SME, in cooperation with Nexter and Airbus Helicopters, the Directorate General for Armament (DGA) and the Defense Innovation Agency, the SPINELLE project aims to develop a light transparent armor solution for land vehicles and helicopters.

Improve crew safety

This study, launched in November 2014 for a period of 5 years, responds to a crucial need: that of optimizing the protection of the glass parts of in-service and future helicopters.

SPINELLE Defense Technology Project: development of a cutting-edge armor material

The helicopters of the Army Light Aviation (ALAT) are regularly deployed on foreign theaters of operations, and are therefore exposed to possible enemy fire. Although they are equipped with the latest technologies to guarantee the performance and safety of their crew and passengers, the glass parts of these aircraft are difficult to protect.

Une problématique liée au poids

Si un blindage de vitre classique (sur une voiture présidentielle par exemple) composé de couches de verre feuilleté superposées offre une bonne performance balistique, il pèse en revanche très lourd. S’il est peu contraignant sur une voiture, le poids est un paramètre primordial lorsqu’il s’agit d’un hélicoptère. La solution en verre n’est donc pas envisageable en aéronautique...

Un matériau unique pour des résultats concluants

Pour développer cette solution technique, la DGA a fait appel à la PME SOLCERA, société française spécialisée depuis de nombreuses années dans la conception et la fabrication de céramiques avancées ainsi que dans l’assemblage verre-métal et céramique-métal. Après plusieurs années de recherche, SOLCERA a mis au point une céramique nanostructurée ultra légère (densité 3,48)... [Lire l'article]
