For the first time, a tetraplegic patient was able to walk and control both arms using this neuroprosthetic, which records, transmits, and decodes brain signals in real-time to control an exoskeleton. The results of a clinical study under the Brain Computer Interface (BCI) Project at Clinatec were published on 4 October 2019 in The Lancet Neurology journal and provide proof of concept for controlling a four-limb exoskeleton. The system is driven via the long-term implant of a semi-invasive medical device to record brain activity developed at CEA in Grenoble. In the long term, this technology is expected to give greater mobility to individuals with severe motor disabilities.

A new European research initiative will develop innovative ways of detecting victims trapped under debris

Bonn, 2nd October 2019

In the face of natural or man-made disaster, urban search and rescue teams and other first responders like police, medical units or civil protection race against the clock to locate survivors within the critical 72-hour timeframe, often at their own peril due to the presence of instable structures or hazardous environments. In order to speed up the detection of survivors trapped in collapsed buildings and to improve working conditions for the first responders, the CURSOR project will devise novel technologies using drones, miniaturized robotic equipment and advanced sensors.

The French Defense Procurement Agency selects the consortium led by Atos for Project Artemis, phase II

Paris, May 23, 2019 - As part of the second phase of Project Artemis1, Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, has been selected, alongside its strategic partners – Capgemini and the CEA – to deliver a prototype of a Big Data platform to the French Defense Procurement Agency (Direction Générale de l’Armement, DGA)2. Project Artemis aims to provide the French Ministry of the Armed Forces with a sovereign « infostructure » for massive data storage and management.

The exploitation of more and more numerous and diverse data is a major challenge to maintain operational control of the French armed forces. Project Artemis, launched in November 2017 by the DGA, aims to meet operational needs through use cases that will facilitate the management and decision-making process of the Army’s various services. Project Artemis aims to provide France with a bulk data processing capability to enable it to act independently in the fields of military intelligence, operational command, and in the digital space.
