Eyes in the sky
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.
Answering your challenge
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 greater situational awareness on the connected battlefield.
Therefore, they can see more clearly, understand more deeply and act more precisely in their decisive moments.
Whether the EOIR, pods enabling a pinpoint accuracy strike on the enemy by relaying highest quality images back to command, the defensive aids systems (missile-detection) keeping aircraft and pilots safe and the navigation solutions assist and improve effectiveness in a wide range of challenging scenarios.
Each capacity used big data processing that helps operators use and interpret their information as smartly as possible by manage the aircrew workflow and reduce the OODA loop.
Expert in optronics
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.
