Dassault Aviation: serving armies

Saint-Cloud, France, October 15, 2020 - On the occasion of the progress report drawn up by Mrs. Florence Parly, minister of the Armed Forces, on the subject of maintenance reform, Dassault Aviation would like to recall its pride in serving the French armies by providing daily support for the Rafale, Mirage 2000, ATL2 and FALCON maritime surveillance fleets.

The decision by the French Ministry of the Armed Forces to verticalize maintenance of the Rafale and ATL2 through the RAVEL and OCEAN contracts ensures that our Air Forces benefit from optimum availability of their fleets.

Thanks to the introduction of RAVEL 18 months ago, Dassault Aviation and its industrial partners, including Thales, now ensure 76% availability of the Rafale, a value higher than the 73% contractually stipulated.

The quality of this service will further improve over time, as planned, thanks in particular to the implementation of an information system built in cooperation with military staff by Dassault Aviation; a tool that draws on Dassault Systèmes' expertise in data management/analysis and will be based on its Cloud technology and EXALEAD software.
