The role of Thales Research and Technology (TRT) is to extend the influence of Thales within the scientific and technical communities, offering a platform for innovation and knowledge sharing, and attracting talented science graduates to build on our acquired expertise.
Thales needs to obtain increasingly sophisticated technologies, particularly in detection, analysis and decision-making technology, in order to design and develop critical information systems.
Our innovative solutions serve customers in the fields of :
- Secure military communications,
- Space systems,
- Air traffic control,
- On-board electronics
- Government information networks.
To develop the technologies it needs, Thales relies heavily on cooperation between its research teams and the academic world. Training is also part of this global strategy of relations between our Group and the academic world, via PhD programs and the Group’s support for university chairs.
The Group supports around 220 PhD students worldwide. They work on subjects directly connected with a technical issue facing Thales.
