ENSTA Bretagne : Systèmes d'Observation et I.A

Observation Systems and AI

ENSTA Bretagne : spécialisation en systèmes d'observation et intelligence artificielle

In response to the needs of civilian and military firms and public organizations, ENSTA Bretagne has focused its extensive expertise on designing embedded systems, multi-sensor observation systems and advanced data processing technology for decision support.

These research and training programs bring together skill sets in electronic systems, software, systems engineering, automation, AI, design and simulation, signal and image processing, etc. 

Many current fields of application require a background in these fields: for example, underwater environment monitoring, space remote sensing, maritime surveillance and security, autonomous vehicle driver assistance systems, drone navigation, mobile telecommunications, etc.

Program strengths

At the heart of technology

Collecting, processing and interpreting large and heterogeneous volumes of data, assisting in decision-making, and managing tight constraints (autonomy, durability, security, etc.): designers of intelligent multi-sensor systems face multiple technological challenges.

Many of ENSTA Bretagne's Lab-STICC (UMR CNRS 6285) research professors explore these topics in their work.

Research partnerships with industry

Shared laboratories with Thales and research programs and theses pursued in common with innovative companies put ENSTA Bretagne right at the heart of R&D programs in France and abroad.

Continuous innovation drawing on extensive experimental facilities

ENSTA Bretagne researchers have access to the campus' extensive experimental facilities. Recent acquisitions have amplified research potential in the fields of cybersecurity and robotics, most notably.
