Thales Deutschland has been an established partner of the German Navy for many years and supplies high-tech solutions for marines of many other countries. At the sites in Wilhelmshaven and Kiel, specialists are working on technologies that efficiently support naval forces at sea. Customers also take advantage from the extensive know-how of other Thales Group subsidiaries.
Securing international operations
In the future the navy must be capable of three dimensional sea combat within the entire intensity spectrum. With its ability for adaptation to different missions, a new type of a multi-purpose battleship (MKS 180) is intended to meet a multitude of tasks globally such as patrolling sea space, humanitarian aid, support for special forces or support during emergency rescue operations. A wide range of weapons systems and protection components within the entire intensity spectrum characterize such a multi-purpose battleship. It is not only aligned for missions of low and medium intensity but also suitably resilient in high intensity missions. It will be suitable for missions above and below sea, in the air and on land and be equipped with the various specific capability packages for these purposes.
Maritime solutions, which are also suitable for a project like MKS 180, represent a major focus of Thales Germany in the field of defense. These also include weapon control and command systems such as TACTICOS and communication and sensor solutions.
