CRISTAL is the name of the new headquarters of Thales Communications & Security, a site dedicated to innovation located in Gennevilliers near the river Seine a few miles north-west of Paris.

More than 4,000 people work on this purpose-built 87,500 sq.m. campus, designing and developing tomorrow’s radiocommunication products and the secure, interoperable information systems of the future.
Thales Communications & Security is moving its operations from Colombes to the new CRISTAL site between August and October 2012.More information about the moving here.

Where defence & security come together

As the world becomes more mobile, interconnected and interdependent, defence and security operations are reaching new levels of complexity.
  • A growing number of operations are conducted by coalition forces, often under international or regional mandates. Armed forces and security agencies must be prepared to work together at a moment’s notice on any type of mission, from law enforcement to high-intensity combat.
  • To operate in this constantly changing threat environment, organisations need to be more agile, faster and more efficient.
  • This is why Thales Communications & Security has decided to move into a new facility specially designed to stimulate innovation and make it easier for us to communicate and interact with each other and with our customers.

Innovation starts here!
