The board of directors of b<>com is fortunate to have members from various structures; academics, large groups, SMEs, hospitals... This collective of committed directors illustrates the richness of the ecosystem of the IRT.
The recent election of Marc Kientzy, Director of Innovation and Strategic Development at Airbus Defence & Space, and Frédéric Rimattei, Deputy Director General of the University Hospital of Rennes, further enriched the board.
"I am particularly pleased to welcome Marc Kientzy and Frédéric Rimattei to the b<>com board. Airbus and the University Hospital of Rennes are long-time members invested in b<>com projects and they will bring us their specific vision with different business needs. I look forward, and I know I speak for all the directors, to welcoming them to the next board assembly. Many challenges await us and with this enriched collective, we will be able to meet them together."
Airbus Defence & Space is pleased to be involved in the life of the IRT. This partnership, which has been growing for more than two years, embodies our mutual contribution: Airbus, a major integrator for the expression of its customers' future projects and their "mission critical" needs, and the IRT b<>com for the coordination and animation of a community of institutions and innovative companies in the development of new sovereign technologies.
As a new member of the IRT b<>com board, we will be particularly attentive to the balanced representation of all the associated academic members with whom we intend to maintain and develop regular and fruitful relations. We are also committed to promoting health in all the activities and projects in which the IRT b<>com is involved by bringing new ideas and actively contributing to their valorization thanks to the clinical, scientific, and technological expertise we have at our disposal.
Airbus Defence & Space has been leveraging b<>com's expertise in 5G, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence since 2020. The primary ambition of this collaboration is to develop airborne tactical bubbles that can quickly bring secure high-speed solutions to theaters of operation.
b<>com and the University Hospital of Rennes have worked on various projects and experiments for several years. Among them: the simulation of a remote surgical intervention via the transmission of images in augmented reality by a 5G network or the development of software allowing the synchronization of pictures of the equipment used for the high-precision guidance of the surgical gesture.
