Mission Altran – The Solar Impulse Experience game

Altran’s “Mission Altran” Facebook game allows players to live the Altran team experience in guiding the Solar Impulse plane on its missions, a year before the solar airplane’s round-the-world scheduled flight. Those playing live the Solar Impulse experience just as Altran’s experts operating from the Mission Control Centre (MCC).

Mission Altran - The Solar Impulse Experience gameMCC is the nerve centre for each flight, in constant and direct contact with the Solar Impulse pilot. the game was made with input from Altran experts in charge of flight simulation and modelling for the solar plane. Commenting on “Mission Altran”, Frédéric Fougerat, Group Vice-President Communications, stated: “Much more than a serious game, “Mission Altran” is part of innovation in terms of communication; it promotes the Altran brand, and in particular the Group’s employer image, by sharing the unique expertise of our Innovation Makers[1] with the players.”

“Mission Altran” offers players the chance to relive the historical missions of the Solar Impulse, from its maiden flight over Switzerland in 2010 through to the first leg of the round-the-world tour in 2015. Assisted by the members of the Solar Impulse team, players will be able to trace the plane’s flight path at each stage of the mission, by referring to identical geographical and meteorological data used during the plane’s real flights. The objective of the game is for players to arrive at their destination with a maximum amount of solar energy remaining in the batteries.
