The acquisition of Gemalto on the 2nd April 2019 has complemented the Group’s digital portfolio and enabled Thales to become a world leader in identity & biometrics, cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, IoT, connectivity, and banking and payment services.
The unique positioning of Thales in the identity and biometric technologies was recognised by the Thai Government in 2019 with Thales being selected, within an international competitive tender for the implementation of a turn-key project for the new Thai passport. From July 2020, Thales has been providing the Thai citizens with one of the world’s most secure e-Passports.
In parallel, Thales supplies cards, banking and payments services to different financials authorities in Thailand.
With its wireless cellular IoT module, Thales is supporting the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) for the replacement of traditional electrical meters with connected smart meters.
