Thales furnishes vehicle solutions, whatever the platform or type of mission to be fulfilled, from stand-platform to multiplatform. Our products range from Recce, infantry carrier, and command post vehicles to combat support and recovery transport.
Because military operations are now network-centric, land forces need superior information and communications capabilities to respond to new threats and to work efficiently and seamlessly with joint and allied forces. Thales delivers interoperable systems that are purpose-designed to give land forces operational superiority. We offer vehicle system integrator solutions for all types of platform and mission, from stand-alone platform to multiplatform. We provide a common vehicle electronic architecture adapted to all variants that gives operational supremacy to end-users as well as industrial and programmatic benefits.
Thales’ vehicle solutions are polyvalent, and we manufacture different families of transport equipment to support a broad variety of operations. Thales has delivered over 25,000 platform systems of 150 different types through partnerships as well as our own industrial vehicle integration facilities around the world.
As a platform vehicle supplier, we manufacture the Bushmaster, a highly protected and mobile family of patrol vehicles. We also work in close cooperation with customers, helping them with through-life support, fleet expansion, aiding with local added value and making optimum use of all their legacy and/or 3rd party equipment
In addition to offering vehicle solutions, we offer accessory products and services for vehicles already in service. These include:
On-board products including optronics, C2, identification, Electronic Warfare, mortars, radars and other sensors.
Mission packages, such as observation, protection, weapons and C4I.
Core vehicle electronic architecture to offer voice, data, video distribution and energy both within vehicles and externally.
Designing vehicle systems architectures and integrating them.
• to inform commanders on time with relevant content
• to share a common tactical picture
• to support decision making
• to disseminate commander’s intent
• to synchronise operations, day and night, in all-weather conditions
• to master its own operational tempo, & keep initiative
• to deny deception, camouflage, or friendly fire
Commander is the Thales Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) capability and based on a standardised and open architecture hosting tactical communications and operational information systems. In doing so, Thales leverages on its ability to deliver integrated and interoperable solutions.
Our solutions are based on military radios and networking equipment designed to sustain the harsh environmental conditions of armoured vehicles.
The solution range provides IP military services including secure voice, e-mail, data distribution, video and blue force tracking. Our solutions are supported by a large range of secure radios covering the full spectrum from HF to VHF and UHF transforming vehicles into powerful mobile network nodes.
Adapted to the constraints of mobile dissemination of orders or alerts, Commander Battlegroup delivers shared situational awareness, automated status reports and fast dissemination of orders or alerts. Management of tactical networks and connexion to combat net radios provide secure, reliable voice and data exchanges.
Land CIEW is a range of tactical electronic support and attack solutions which can be delivered as equipment, systems and services. As a dedicated COMINT/ESM/ECM mission package it is designed to target the current and near-term radio signals environment of air land operations in peace, crisis or war: HF, VHF and UHF emissions, in fixed frequency or frequency-agile modes. As such, Land CIEW can include sensor payloads, sensor exploitation hardware and software, sensor integration on army platforms (shelters, land vehicles, UAV and light aircraft) and sensor-C2 integration on secure voice and data networks between combat net radios.
