Located at about 15 kilometres from Bordeaux in the south-west of France, this centre is the historical birthplace of the French strategic nuclear force’s ballistic systems. The skills acquired developing these programmes have made Aquitaine the specialist for integration of solid propellant stages, re-entry vehicles, design and manufacture of thermal protection systems, and high-performance wound filament structures, and complex testing and engineering for ground installations.
