ScioTeq provides high-tech visualization solutions for three of the world's most critical environments: Avionics, Defense & Security and Air Traffic Control.

ScioTeq is mainly active in the air, making displays for the cockpit. ScioTeq is actively involved in the reformation of the way we fly: greener, more efficient, safer and who knows one day unmanned.
