Areas of focus

We are at the cusp of a third revolution in flight. That’s why at Airbus, we are laser focused on specific research and development areas that are going to be the key drivers in shaping the future of aerospace and improving the way we live, travel, and interact. Here are a few.  

 

We’re pioneering electric technologies and flight.

E-Fan X in flight

Electric and hybrid-electric propulsion is the most promising technology to develop means of transportation with improved environmental performance that are less reliant on fossil fuels and use energy more efficiently. That’s why Airbus is investing heavily in research dedicated to developing all necessary technologies, and partnering with the best to make it a reality. 

We’re digitizing aerospace design, manufacturing, our products and services and even the sky.

In the last decade, virtual, augmented and mixed reality have become more mobile and easier to use than ever, freeing up potential to completely transform many areas.

Over the last 10 years, the pace of technological disruption has accelerated, drastically reducing the cost of products and services to make them more available to more people. We are embracing digital technologies to move from a hardware-focused approach to an integrated, problem-solving approach that connects software, hardware, and customer perspectives.
