Aurelie is an officer in the civilian reserve of the French Air Force, affiliated with strategy and cyber defense. She lives in the 11th district in Paris and moved in her apartment on Friday 13 Nov. 2015, the night of the Paris attacks. They happened a few blocks from her home. This event and a fateful encounter with General Jean-Paul Paloméros, former NATO Supreme Allied Command Transformation (SACT) and Chief of the French Air Force, led her to the civilian reserve of the French Air Force.

She learned a lot from the military world and people. She visited a couple of French Air Force bases, the NATO Innovation Hub in Norfolk (USA), and recently served as an expert at a strategic workshop on resilience, innovation and Artificial Intelligence, with senior officers from 3 Air Forces (France, US, UK). She met General Denis Mercier, current NATO SACT and former Chief of the French Air Force (picture).

Defense matters in today’s world full of uncertainties and increasing risks. At BLUSPHINX® we are grateful to all service men and women for their work to keep us safe in the US, France, NATO countries and other free nations of the world. And we are determined to do our part to help!
