MONTREAL– EADS and Creaform have entered into a technological partnership agreement covering 3-D optical measurement for aerospace and defense applications.

The agreement was finalized in the presence of Charles Mony, president of Creaform; Stéphane Galibois, vice president Americas and aerospace at Creaform; Pierre Delestrade, president and CEO of EADS Canada; Olivier Le Gall, vice president for industrialization; and globalization at EADS; and Yann Barbaux, Head of EADS Innovation Works.

It was announced at the National Research Council Canada’s Aerospace Manufacturing Technology Centre, and with the support of the Quebec Aerospace Association.

This 5-year agreement provides for the development of innovative applications in the field of optical 3-D measurement for non-destructive testing (NDT), test monitoring and form and surface measurement, applied to aeronautics, space and defense.

“EADS has successfully implemented Creaform’s 3D scanning and optical measurement technologies since 2008. The developments planned will enable EADS to reduce its development time cycle, create synergies and reduce the time-to-market of its new products,” says Yann Barbaux, head of EADS Innovation Works.
