Supporting your ambitions

In Aerospace, governments, airports, airlines, pilots, crews and passengers rely on Thales to make flight safer, easier and more efficient. We do this by designing, delivering and supporting the systems that keep our skies running. From air traffic management, training and simulation solutions, nose-to-tail aircraft connectivity and in-flight services, we enable and connect all parts of the aerospace ecosystem in the air, on the ground, and in between. Whatever it takes.


More than 180 countries world-wide use our technologies for their air traffic management and airspace surveillance. For every flight, pilots and passengers alike trust in the reliable functioning of our systems.

Securing the airspace world-wide

We have reason to be proud that our company is involved in so many vital civil and military aerospace programmes around the world: Thales is a leading international equipper and supplier for air traffic management and air traffic control, playing a decisive role globally in elevating security, reliability and efficiency in air traffic. We also supply major airlines with state-of-the-art on-board entertainment systems. With its Air Traffic Management business unit, Thales Germany is one of the few providers in the world that can equip air traffic management systems with the full range of en route systems, landing systems and non-radar airfield and airspace surveillance systems. But there is more that Thales can do than just safety.

We also offer our customers package solutions as well as individual products, all from a single source: for communication, navigation, air traffic control and airport automation, from design to development and production, including installation and commissioning. And our in-house service also provides the guarantee that everything will function reliably and operate at peak performance throughout its entire service life. We offer a broad portfolio of solutions for the protection of equipment and the safety of passengers in airports. We treat air traffic as a complex system and help our customers to make this system safer, more efficient, simpler and more comfortable, in the air and on the ground. For the safety and security of passengers and infrastructures at airports, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of products, systems and solutions, as well as training and simulation solutions and a comprehensive range of services.

Technology advantage due to multilateration and ADS-B

Multilateration and ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) of Thales are technologies that make it possible to determine the position, altitude, speed and identity of aircraft at regular intervals. The current airspace situation can now be accurately determined in ways that have not been possible before, therefore contributing to the prevention of conflicts in airspace management, and ultimately improving airspace monitoring and security.
