Overview

Thales UK develops and delivers vehicle systems to give your AFVs an operational edge and enhanced mission survivability

Whether in support of military operations in a combat environment or humanitarian and peacekeeping missions, the capabilities of a deployed Armoured Fighting Vehicle (AFV) are crucial to mission success and survivability.

Thales UK has a proven expertise in the systems that deliver these capabilities:
  • Vehicle Sighting Systems
  • Environmental Sensors
  • Vehicle Systems Integration
  • Laser Warning Systems
  • Electronic Vehicle Architecture

Thales UK offers adaptability in the modern environment

A diverse range of demands is placed upon today’s vehicles; consequently their designs vary greatly.

From lightweight to heavyweight protected patrol vehicles, wheeled or tracked vehicles through to main battle tanks, all vehicles need the capability to conduct surveillance activities, detect potential threats and relay data throughout the vehicle and along the command chain.

Should offensive action be required, the vehicle commander needs the situational awareness and target data to engage the threat accurately and effectively.
