Thales in Singapore is the main entry point and hub for aerospace for the Asia-Pacific region today. The Singapore Avionics production facility manufactures key systems for the Airbus A320, A350 and Boeing B787 fleets, including flight control computer displays and electrical systems. This equipment is supplied to partners and customers region-wide. Activities in Singapore have also extended to include Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services for avionics and In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) equipment.
In the area of inflight entertainment, Singapore Airlines selected Thales’s AVANT In-Flight Entertainment system and Ka-band connectivity solution to equip its fleet of A350 XWB aircraft configured for medium-haul operations
Thales has delivered sophisticated Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems to the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). In 2014, Singapore inaugurated the new Singapore Air Traffic Control Centre (SATCC), which uses Thales’ LORADS III as a key Air Traffic Management system.
Thales has strengthened it collaboration with CAAS over the last few years to accelerate ATM innovations. Since November 2019, CAAS and Thales has operated a joint Aviation Innovation Research (AIR Lab) located at Thales Digital Factory. The lab is working to design and develop and open ATM system architecture, working with the local ATM ecosystem.
