Today, Thales announces it has become the official communications partner for IMOCA through 2021 to support the big ambitions of skippers competing in the IMOCA Globe Series World Championship. Now more than 30 world class skippers from around the globe will rely on Thales for decisive connectivity technologies as they pilot their vessels in extreme, open-sea environments.
With Thales’s new Gemalto Digital ID Wallet, governments will issue a secure digital version of official documents including identity cards, health cards and drivers licenses, available to all citizens on their smartphones. Citizens will therefore be able to prove who they are, both online and in the ‘real world’, and access their rights and services at the touch of a button. The solution uses multi-layered security techniques and sophisticated encryption to achieve robust protection of personal data, whilst offering users complete control over what information they choose to share, with whom, and when.
