# THE PROJECT
In 1996, while he was still an engineer in the Comex company, Pierre TANTOT created Survey-Copter, which, in time, became an international actor in aeronautics and defense.
Early 2009, in the context of its research and development programmes, teams started working on a concept simulating the pitching of boats for the landing of UAVs. Impressed with the quality of the prototype, they decided to apply this technology to motor racing.
The ellip6 project got started in 14 months with the creation of the first centre in Pierrelatte.
The parent company of the project, Survey-Copter, became e6 LAB in 2011, after the acquisition of the UAVs and industrial engineering branch by the EADS group.
Following the creation of the XL, LT and motorbike simulators, a new range of products appeared with to the development of virtual reality headsets.
In 2017, e6 Lab designed the MiNi simulator. Dedicated to virtual reality, it is available in 3 formats : U1 (1 seat), U3 (3 seats) and U6 (6 seats).
The dynamic seats created by e6 Lab are now set up in the Futuroscope theme park for their first virtual reality attraction, aboard the car of French racing champion Sébastien Loeb.
