The Systems Engineering Division


The systems engineering department is in liaison with the other Irfu departments in the fields of mechanical engineering and instrumentation, research instrument design. The DIS, because of its complementary profile, is involved from feasibility studies to the deployment of equipment and during certain projects through an industrialization phase. Working in collaboration with the other departments, DIS has led to work on diversified projects such as the development of prototype magnets for the LHC's energy rise, and the project management of a complete accelerator system for various international collaborations such as FAIR or ESS. But also the mechanical architecture and the control-command of detectors such as Clas12 and Stereo. 
It contributes to the testing, maintenance and evolution of these instruments through technological infrastructures and specific equipment to carry out and characterize these achievements as cryogenic optical benches for space instruments for example.
In parallel, the department is involved in research and development activities in order to maintain their high level of competence. DIS has the capability to provide a complete cryomechanical system covering mechanical engineering, power electronics and control activities.

DIS - activity : For mechanical engineering activities, the open-space layout of the mechanical design office ensures the rapid exchange of information required from the earliest stages with physicists, the circulation of know-how, the continuity of skills and a group dynamic consistent with the department's missions.
DIS - mission and strategy : Within the Irfu project organisation, DIS's mission is to cover the mechanical design and implementation of innovative experimental devices for physics, and to ensure the development and implementation of instrumentation, electronic servo and control systems necessary for their proper operation. Based on a methodology inspired by the system approach, DIS' commitment to projects can evolve from a business contribution to the overall project management of complex experimental systems.
DIS - plateforms : Mechanical design and engineering are ensured by a mastery of software tools to meet the various requirements (space, accelerator, certification, thermo-hydraulics,...
DIS - structure and professions : Profiles DIS forms a team of about 100 permanent employees, engineers or technicians spread almost evenly, to which are added about 10% of temporary contracts linked to temporary increases in activity.  The DIS covers two main components of trades: mechanical engineering; instrumentation.
