B-Temia and Sagem (Safran) have signed a technological and business development agreement to develop and market new-generation exoskeletons for industrial and military applications.
Exoskeletons are bio-mechanical and electronic structures worn on the body to assist and enhance people's movements, or to restore mobility.
B-Temia will contribute its experience in human robotics and artificial intelligence, based on its proprietary "Dermoskeleton" technology, already in production for the healthcare sector.
Martin Sion, Chief Executive Officer of Sagem, added, "Our collaboration with B-Temia will enable us to sustain new R&D work on exoskeletons. The collaboration spotlights the dynamic mindset that Sagem seeks to deploy in the application of innovative dual technologies in conjunction with both startups and major corporations."
Ecoskeletons for military applications are being researched upon by Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and several other companies. They are expected to ease the burden of soldiers in combat and field situations.
Sagem (Safran) announced Monday that it has signed collaboration agreement with Défense Conseil International (DCI) on airborne surveillance systems, which are based on light aircraft and drones, for France as well as international markets. The manned airborne surveillance services offered by DCI will call on the Diamond DA 42 light twin-engine aircraft, equipped with Sagem's Euroflir 350 or 410 optronic pod
Sagem (Safran) has won a contract on Monday with the arms authority of the Egyptian Ministry of Defense for AASM Hammer air-to-ground missiles. This contract follows the acquisition by Egypt of 24 Rafale omnirole fighters from Dassault Aviation
Lockheed Martin has designed FORTIS Knee Stress Release Device (K-SRD) that uses Dermoskeleton bionic augmentation technology to increase mobility and carrying capability for soldiers. The firm has designed the exoskeleton to assist soldiers who work in extreme conditions and environments and face problems like exhaustion and injury in light of the heavy equipment and gear that many soldiers are required to carry
France has ordered 14 Patroller Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to replace French Armys Sperwer UAVs worth $340 million from Sagem. The contract covers delivery of two operational Patroller systems each including five UAVs and a ground control station
