The armed forces that we rely on to protect our lives, borders and values – they rely on Thales.
In Airborne Optronics, we design, develop, produce and support the airborne sensors and systems for manned and unmanned aircraft –
the ‘eyes in the sky’ that are critical for tactical and strategic advantage.
Even as aircraft get faster, operating terrain gets more complex, missions become more diverse, and the quantity of information gathered increases, our sensors enable pilots and command to have ever greater situational awareness on the connected battlefield.
So they can see more clearly, understand more deeply and act more precisely in their decisive moments.
Whether the targeting pods enabling a pinpoint accuracy strike on the enemy; the missile-detection systems keeping aircraft and pilots safe; the reconnaissance systems relaying highest quality images back to command; or the big data processing that helps operators use and interpret their information as smartly as possible.
For over 50 years we have led optronics innovation, by combining world-leading expertise from across the Thales group. Today Thales is the only provider in Europe for steer and scan sensors for fighter-type platforms.
Taking advantage on enemies, while keeping soldiers and civilians safer.
Whatever it takes.
