Threats are evolving, technology is advancing, and budgets are tightening. The GM200 radar demonstrates how Thales are rethinking how forces can keep a sustainable strategic advantage.
In order to tackle and significantly lower smuggling and other criminal activities in Jamaica, the government is implementing the Maritime Domain Awareness Capability Initiative, a far reaching programme aimed reducing the proliferation of maritime threats. A key component of this initiative is the implementation of a national coastal surveillance system operated by the Jamaica Defence Force. In order to fulfil this big ambition, Jamaica is relying on Thales for the supply of coastal surveillance system built around the Coast Watcher 100 radar.
The Commission for the Implementation of the Airspace Control System (CISCEA) in Brazil has awarded a contract to Thales’s Brazilian subsidiary Omnisys to supply primary and secondary airspace surveillance radar stations. Deployed in the mid-west border area, the surveillance radars will further extend air coverage in this region.
The French defence procurement agency (DGA) relies on Thales’s expertise in sensors and has placed an order for two Coast Watcher 100s. This coastal surveillance radar is specially designed for the critically important role of protecting national coastlines from a broad array of threats. The radars will be installed at the DGA missile test ranges of Mediterranean Sea and Landes. Thales will provide through-life support and security maintenance for seven years.
Thales’ new generation of 4D radar enables navies to detect, track, and identify any threat and make the right decisions at every decisive moment. And by going to a digital software-defined future-proof radar architecture, with inherent scalability and upgradability, navies will be ready for whatever the future may bring.
Space is getting crowded with satellites, bits of rocket stages, parts spun off the International Space Station, all now in constant orbit around the earth. There's the potential for some close encounters with satellites. Until now. Read on.
Thales, as a member of the Rafale joint venture (Groupement d’Intérêt Economique), has been awarded a contract by the French defence procurement agency (DGA) to contribute to the development of the Rafale F4 standard, enabling the Rafale combat aircraft to maintain its superiority against new threats.
Ships in dangerous waters can now sail in safety, thanks to advanced long-range surveillance radar that can track 800 objects simultaneously at a range of up to 500 kilometers in the air and 80 kilometers on the surface.
Thales announces the acquisition of Aveillant Ltd, a Cambridge (UK) based start-up company, pioneer in holographic radar technology.
On 31 January 2017, Thales has been awarded a contract by the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization for the delivery of 14 Continuous Wave Illumination (CWI) transmitters
