Snecma is a major French manufacturer of engines for commercial and military aircraft, and for space vehicles. The name is an acronym for 'Société Nationale d'Étude et de Construction de Moteurs d'Aviation' (in English, "National Company for the Design and Construction of Aviation Engines").

In 2005, the Snecma group, which included Snecma (called Snecma Moteurs at this time), merged with SAGEM to form SAFRAN. Snecma is now a subsidiary of the SAFRAN Group and previous Snecma group subsidiaries have been reorganised within the wider group.
