Expertise and Technological Patrimony

Founded in 2013, FOXEL is the result of intense technology watch and of several years of research and development. Today, it benefits from solid expertise in digital imaging, computer engineering, electronics and micro-mechanics.

The cumulative experience of its founders, recognized and supported by their peers, confers on FOXEL an expertise which enables it to meet the requirements of the highest level in terms of governance and strategy, coupled with exceptional technological know-how.

Our expertise and specialization in the fields of stereophotogrammetry, measurement and embedded systems places us at the heart of the great innovations of the present and the future.

In order to build key technological patrimony, we identify, conceptualize and integrate hardware and software components stemming from standardized and sustainable technologies. We are thus able to provide our Clients with high-value-added products and services.
