A new digital platform for air travel accompanies passengers all along their journey and improves airline and airport management
Airbus Helicopters and DGA select Thales’s new FlytX avionics suite for latest-generation helicopter programmes
The FlytX avionics suite will equip the future H160M Guépard, the military version of the H160 from Airbus Helicopters. FlytX is based on the Avionics 2020 concept unveiled at the 2013 Paris Air Show and comprises an intuitive touchscreen interface designed by pilots for pilots.
As the 2017 Paris Air Show has opened its doors, Marc Darmon, Executive Vice President, Secure Communications and Information Systems, speaks about the new security and cybersecurity challenges facing the aerospace sector as a whole. He points to today's investment priorities for airport security and explains how cybersecurity creates value by enabling new services for customers and passengers alike.
Demand from Asia, which never saw the Concorde in commercial service, is one source of the developing demand for supersonic travel over both land and sea, although North America appears still to be the biggest potential market.
Electrified aircraft can help us achieve Clean Sky targets, which aims for a 50% cut in CO2 emissions and an 80% cut in NOx emissions by 2020. Thales expertise is accelerating the transition through stepped up R&D to develop solutions able to power the various electrical networks of an aircraft. Here's how.
Increasing air traffic, reduced separation between planes, heavier workloads. Future pilots will have less time to react and the risks are greater. The solution is AI.
Technology is key to both military and civilian applications. Today, they benefit from each other’s advances, in a new cross-fertilisation of ideas.
Thales is working with helicopter operators to improve their operations for civil and military services, increasing mission efficiency, interoperability and reactivity thanks to connectivity and on-board open-world applications.
