Land forces all over the world rely on Thales's comprehensive array of cutting-edge vehicle optronics solutions to help them complete their missions safely and effectively in a wide range of battlespace environments.
With the return of high-intensity conflict and growing geopolitical tensions around the world, our vehicle optronics products and solutions for all types of vehicles and land-based platforms enable users to detect, identify and engage hostile forces at tactical or long range, day and night, while maintaining a high level of situational awareness, and staying protected inside their vehicles.
The ability to draw on rich, ultra-reliable information from multiple sources provides a crucial edge in today’s battlespace. This is where Thales’s vehicle optronics products and solutions come into their own: military users are able to leverage the power and reliability of the state-of-the-art sensors that form the beating heart of our solutions, giving them confidence that they can consistently exploit their advantage to engage, protect and survive in a variety of battlefield conditions.
Designed for users with users
Armed forces around the world recognise Thales as a global technology leader and a pioneer of customer-centred innovation. Our solutions draw on state-of-the-art optronics, optics, precision mechanics and connectivity technologies, and are co-developed with users, supported by our comprehensive development facilities, to prepare them for the collaborative combat of the future.
Thales offers a complete range of vehicle optronics solutions encompassing three key capabilities: targeting and surveillance (including sighting systems, cooled and uncooled thermal imagers, lasers, sensor packs, etc.); driver vision enhancement (DVE)/local situational awareness (LSA); and protection (including laser warning systems (LWS), missile warning systems (MWS), grenade launchers and shot detection).
From vehicle-mounted thermal imagers and sensor packs to above-armour sights and laser warning systems, our comprehensive range of high-tech products lets land forces leverage the full speed, firepower and precision of their platforms, enabling them to get the job done in the field, every time.
Backed by our range of maintenance and support services, including integrated repair and logistics capabilities, to guarantee that equipment is always available and ready for action when needed, Thales’s vehicle optronics solutions – across all of the capabilities outlined above – are suitable for use on a broad array of platforms, from main battle tanks and armoured personnel carriers to reconnaissance vehicles and remote weapon stations. Thanks to Thales’s vehicle optronics solutions, land forces have the power to see everything they need to see, day or night, at tactical or long range, on any platform, in any environment.
