The contract, signed by the end of March 2019 by Thales and the Federal Office for Defence Procurement (Armasuisse) calls for supply of the elements of an IMINT image intelligence centre. Deliveries will begin in early 2020. Built around the Thales MINDS / SAIM system, the platform will enable capture, analysis and optimal exploitation of all types of imagery data. It will be completely virtualised to facilitate integration with the customer’s existing infrastructure, and will incorporate the most advanced AI technologies to take image data analysis to a new level, thus enabling the most relevant intelligence to be distributed to the Swiss authorities, so they can make the right decisions.
While digital technologies promise huge productivity gains and disruptive innovations in all sectors of industry, they also expose companies to a growing array of cyber risks.
The most dangerous part of a soldier’s day on the battlefield can be exiting the armored vehicle. Thales can help solve the problem with day and night 360 degree local awareness.
Military superiority depends on information superiority and, particularly, on continuous imagery. Connected combat will mean vastly improved vision and battlefield awareness for tomorrow's soldiers. The keys are sophisticated sensors, seamless connectivity and effectors on and above the conflict zone, Artificial Intelligence for rapid target acquisition and immediate engagement decisions.

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
Led by the French CEA with the help of Thales, SPARTA is a novel Cybersecurity Competence Network, supported by Europe’s H2020 programme.
Risks are increasing for naval forces as traditional naval powers contest increasingly the open seas, unconventional forces take to the waters with dangerous new weapons, and technology can mask ship movements. Submarines need more sensitive ‘ears’ and ‘brains’ to cut through the clutter and protect both their missions and themselves. A must read, now.
It takes an expert in cybersecurity and low-energy systems to develop an AI that will differentiate itself from much of the inefficient tech of today. Thales is developing new ways to minimise AI energy use, in the aircraft cockpit and beyond. Read on.
What is there to say about Artificial Intelligence that hasn't already been said? Is it some evil monster intent on devouring our hard-won freedoms? Or a magical trunk with the powers to deliver humankind from its lowly insufficiencies? In truth it's neither: AI in our lifetime will be anything and everything we decide to make it.
Artificial Intelligence provides critical information to decision-makers when lives are at stake. But how do we make sure that it doesn't become smarter than we are?
