UBIFRANCE to promote high-flying players at Inter Airport 2013

UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development, has brought together about 20 companies to showcase different aspects of French airport-industry know-how at the Inter Airport 2013 exhibition, in Munich (Germany), between 8 and 11 October. Inter Airport is the leading international airport exhibition and an unmissable event when it comes to meeting international decision-makers and buyers in the airport sector.

Long-term forecasts indicate that the use of air transport is set to increase. Boosted by the growth of the aviation industry, various development projects in relation to airport terminals are taking shape around the world. France has numerous airports, but also an important know-how in the field of airport services, which allows the country to hold an important position on the international market. The companies in attendance at the French Pavilion at the Inter Airport exhibition are representative of the sector’s diversity and French excellence in the field.

Manufacturers of equipment such as ground-support equipment, luggage trolleys, axles, maintenance tools, height-access systems, computer security cabinets and security/sound barriers will take centre stage. A range of airfield lighting systems will also be showcased, from the manufacture of autonomous emergency runway lighting to photometric control equipment for runway lighting, as well as high-performance glass technology.

Highly effective aircraft lifting solutions, which have proved their worth in airports across the world, will be presented along with aeroplane/helicopter refuelling systems. Innovative products will be on display such as aircraft lifting cushions, quick-release fuel systems, water tanks for use in the case of fire, and barrages/floats, among others.

In addition to fittings and airport equipment, it will also be possible to discover solutions for strengthening bitumen-coated materials (bituminous concrete) and treating cracks in roads that have been reinforced with glass-fibre grids. Products made from polyurethane, a resistant and long-lasting material, will also be displayed. Visitors will have the opportunity to gather information from experts with regard to the latest professional wireless-communication systems that facilitate mobility and security in the workplace.

Proavia, a company that aims to disseminate and share information about French technology for airports and airport security, will be on hand to promote and discuss specific offers made by manufacturers and airport consultants in this field.

In short, it will be possible to find suitable solutions, in the form of highly technical and innovative products, for a wide range of industry problems. Representatives of the following companies will be on hand to meet visitors at the French Pavilion: 6D SOLUTIONS (, CADDIE (, DEDIENNE AEROSPACE (, DESCHAMPS (, ELAUL (, EUROGSE (, FORTAL (, GATE (, GLOBALSYS (, LM REALISATIONS (, MONROC (, MUSTHANE (, NAKSYS (, PIM ( , PRONAL (, PROAVIA (, SAINT GOBAIN SOVIS (, and TITAN (

All these companies will be represented on the French Pavilion, in Hall B6 (Stand 614), from 8 to 11 October of this year, at Inter Airport 2013 in Munich (in the south of Germany).


UBIFRANCE is the French export-support agency. As the partner of reference for French-based companies wishing to export, UBIFRANCE offers a complete range of services based on the provision of information on export markets, legal issues and regulations, as well as international finance and tenders, while also supplying sectorial data.

In addition, UBIFRANCE offers export advice and targeted support to companies’ commercial activities, such as exploratory visits, partnership meetings, foreign exhibitions and international press communication.

Finally, UBIFRANCE runs the International Postgraduate Programme (VIE) for employing qualified personnel and young graduates outside France.

UBIFRANCE is showcasing about 20 French companies at Inter Airport 2013, which will take place in Munich (Germany) from 8 to 11 October 2013. The companies will be on the French Pavilion, in Hall B6 (Stand 614).

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
