Local cooperation

Thales’ strategy is to best serve national markets by establishing local partnerships. In Sweden, we already have a significant number of collaborations with local subcontractors and partners and will, as new contracts arrive, continue to reach out to local expertise.
We recognise the high penetration of digital use and development in the Swedish market, and will continue to establish long-term cooperation with customers and partners. The markets we address lie within digital security, aviation safety and defence & Security technology.

In Sweden, Defence is a growing part of our business. Among other things, Thales  designs and produces the Flash-S Dipping Sonar to the Swedish Navy’s specific operational requirements. This specialised surveillance and classification sonar for helicopters and Unmanned Surface Vehicles provides an unrivaled capability against small, slow moving or stationary underwater targets. In July 2023 Thales and Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) signed an agreement for the delivery and installation of SMART-L Multi Mission land based long-range radars. Thales is also currently supplying the next generation IP-based tactical communication infrastructure to the Swedish Army under the KomNod programme among many others.


Since 1973, Thales has delivered Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems to Sweden in cooperation with LFV (the Air Navigation Service provider in Sweden). LFV is a state enterprise under the Ministry of Transport & Energy and controls 627,000 square kilometers of airspace.
Thales has over fifty years of experience in designing and implementing radars and ATM systems and provides a complete multisensory surveillance solution. In Sweden, Thales has installed an ATM system (COOPANS – TopSky ATC and radars) that controls Swedish airspace and the airports.
