Situated between the industrial and academic worlds, research is one of the cornerstones of IPSA pedagogy. An Aerospace Engineering college, with its research laboratories dedicated to Aerospace, IPSA places innovation at the heart of it's training in engineering. Thanks to its researchers and their works, IPSA is able to contract new fundamental partnerships with industrial and external laboratories so that research in the college develops in synergy with the world of fundamental and applied research.

3 lines of research

Mechatronics, signals and systems

The Mechatronics, Signal and Systems Laboratory at IPSA develops powerful automated systems which allow the control of complex systems.

The laboratory, through partnerships it has with CNES, universities and some aerospace companies (industrial, SMEs, institutions ...), develops innovative projects for aeronautics and space. It is thus committed to the ARES program where the goal is to develop small modular experimental rockets.

Other research themes coexist in this laboratory. One of them is to study the architecture of an RF receiver (Radio Frequency) for software defined radio and cognitive radio. Another focuses on theoretical and technological challenges imposed by the development of autonomous miniature vehicles

Mechatronics, Energy and Aerodynamics

The themes of the Mechanics, Energy and Aerodynamics laboratory at IPSA are organized around three axes:

Astronomy and Astrophysics

The Astronomy and Astrophysics laboratory at l'IPSA is organized around two research themes:

These collaborations bring additional resources and expertise to IPSA's partners, while IPSA benefits from the framework and resources of its partners to be more productive, both in terms of pure research and ultimately in the transfer in education to students. The growth of research also helps to establish closer links with industry, particularly via the ASTech pole.
