Thales in Portugal carries out activities in the Defence field through EDISOFT. With the increasing complexity of the challenges to maintain safety at sea, the technological capacity can be crucial for the success of a mission. The EDISOFT solutions are designed to simplify the coordination of assets deployed by joint and/or coalition forces, contributing to information sharing, threats anticipation and decision support, thus providing superiority in the Command Chain. In Portugal, EDISOFT also provides operational support for combat systems, radars and simulation systems, together with advance integrated logistic support and configuration management for naval vessels.
Thanks to EDISOFT, Thales has taken part in various programmes for the modernisation of the Portuguese Navy. EDISOFT is for instance a key partner of the Portuguese Navy latest generation Oceanic Patrol Vessels (OPV) of the Viana do Castelo-class. In 2015, an order for additional ships consolidated the position of EDISOFT as the Portuguese leader in Naval Systems, pointing out the recognition of its engineering by the Portuguese Navy and the West Sea shipyard.
