Over the past decade Thales in Norway has been growing its business within the field of system integration and system deliveries.  The activities include development, integration and installation of communication and control room systems to customers in Norway and internationally.
 
Thales in Norway has a wide range of solutions within the field of communication systems and control room communications. The company has supplied military and enterprise networks since the mid-1980s and has gained a broad experience in defence communications over the years.
  • Thales has supplied voice and data intercom systems for more than 1,000 army vehicles in Norway. This system, known as SOTAS, has been developed and produced by Thales. SOTAS offers effective noise-cancelling functions and ensures clear voice transmission even in very noisy environments.

  • TVS is a voice over IP product suite targeted at tactical IP networks but is also used in fixed, military networks. The main components of the system are software products that can be ported to different computer and hardware platforms, from large stationary servers to small embedded devices.
Thales has also been selected by the Norwegian Armed Forces as the supplier for satellite communication systems for both the Nansen-class frigates and the Skjold-class corvettes.
