A new digital platform for air travel accompanies passengers all along their journey and improves airline and airport management
Air taxis are moving from fiction to fact, with Thales digital technologies aboard to make it happen safely.
Predictive maintenance is boosting safety, reliability and cost-effectiveness in Avionics and Air Traffic Management. Thales’ AI and Big Data expertise is up to the challenge.
The imminent explosion in drone use will make our skies pretty crowded – so it’s essential the tools we use to manage our airspaces all work in harmony, says Todd Donovan.
Air traffic is exploding worldwide. Thales’s SimDebrief harnesses AI to bolster the efficiency of air traffic controllers training and to ensure that the increase in controller training demand can be managed . Read on
Soon, planes will be competing for airspace with drones and other UAVs, “air taxis” (four-passenger commuter vehicles), supersonic transport, more satellite launches and military missions, plus a whole new category of vehicles being sent up by Amazon, Facebook and others. Thales thinks ahead with advanced air traffic management solutions.
When hurricane Irma wiped out the air traffic management system on the Caribbean island of St Maarten, this smart solution saved the day.
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.
Mike Oliver and Joel Grundy of Thales explain how Soarizon could be one of the answers to today's challenges in the emerging drone market and so help unlock the door to better, more efficient and safer use of UAS. Thales' software-based digital operations center for qualified and trusted drone operations can build confidence for safe and acceptable UAS flight among operators and all other actors.
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.
