The demand for on-board aircraft connectivity is growing rapidly, fuelling a need for new, enhanced and optimised infrastructure for operational, business and entertainment - in space, in the air and on the ground.
Thales UK is leveraging a strong heritage as an innovator and investor in research to develop and provide ground-breaking solutions, products and technologies to address this growing market:
- We are working with key aviation partners to provide high-speed in-flight connectivity across the European Aviation Network (EAN)
- We are investing heavily in research to enable airlines and aircraft to integrate the latest technology that offers passengers and crew a safer and enhanced experience
- We are a market leader with a proven track record in aerospace connectivity and an innovative approach towards developing satellite communications products
- Our TopFlight Satcom has quickly established a global presence after certification on a wide range of aircraft, including Boeing and Airbus platforms
We expect future aircraft to require a much wider range of communication bearers to serve growing needs for enhanced in-flight connectivity for air traffic management, safety and passenger entertainment services.
Creating the next generation communication technology with key aviation partners
We are working with the UK Government, industry and academic partners, to develop more integrated aviation communication systems, through research projects such as SANDRA and HARNET. As a result, our solutions are making it easier for aircraft to take full advantage of current and future technology.
