Thales is the largest European manufacturer of military communications systems, and our UK offering draws on our extensive local and international capability. Thales provides fully integrated and modular communications systems, based on its naval Aquilon product range. It installs and commissions entire communication systems aboard Royal Navy ships, land-based operations rooms, and as deployable management systems.
Thales develops secure naval communications systems utilising our common integrated communication system, COMTICS, with a tailored modular solution created to meet specific operational needs. COMTICS allows greater mobility on board the vessel, supporting changes in the way communication devices are used and in turn driving greater operational efficiency.
The Aquilon product range, through COMTICS, interfaces internal and external communications equipment.
Thales’s Communication Management System, PARTNER, also provides a common management solution across the entire Aquilon product range. Thales has designed an open architecture that is scalable across different platforms.
With its complete offering and expertise, Thales bridges the gap between the Communication, Network Infrastructure and Application Layers for its Naval Platform solutions, whilst being a leader in protecting this ecosystem, with its Digital Trust and Cyber Security Solutions.
Thales are unique in radio suppliers, as we retain a UK based hardware and waveform development centre. This enables us to develop and supply solutions to specialist high security radio users in the military and civil field and also means we can provide a highly flexible and reactive local presence.
However, customer needs are always evolving and therefore Thales never stands still. That’s why we continue to invest in new solutions like wideband HF waveforms, enabling data communications services at reduced cost or in SATCOM denied environments.
