Thales’s Angénieux optics continues to make space history a half century after man’s first step on the moon. Read on.
Drone surveillance can improve the safety of rail infrastructure, either as eyes in the sky or on tracks as the ‘rail bot ’ of the future. Thales optronics, infrared sensors, connectivity and AI are the keys. A must read, now.
Connecting forces and equipment gives the collaborative edge over fast-changing risks of hybrid warfare.
The bombing attack on the marketplace seemed all too familiar.
But, this time, there was no suicide bomber; a drone carrying a grenade delivered the deadly blast and the first news on it was fake, with ‘false flags’ leading down blind alleys to dead ends to throw defence forces off the insurgents’ trail.
At the same time , stealth fighters were entering national airspace, in close formation with regular airliners , heading to a political leader summit not far from the market place.
Optronics and AI combine to cover the entire critical decision chain for fighter pilots
Using immersive simulation and fast prototyping, the Thales co-innovation environment for combat aircraft enables to test new concepts and to explore the possibilities of the following embedded systems: optronic systems, radars, electronic warfare systems and heads-up displays.
As Thales continues its 40-year history of protecting civilians and soldiers with advanced airborne optronics systems, Emmanuel Vialle, operational advisor and airborne optronics product line manager at Thales, reviews some of the military and industry’s important challenges and how Thales handles them, especially thanks to TALIOS, its latest generation multi-function pod.
From June 2018, our Sophie thermal imagers will help the Jean-Marc Landry Foundation to study and protect animal species in the wild. Learn more about a partnership for a worthy cause.
The CECILE-TS family of extra-rugged Thermal Weapon Sights, specially adapted for use with precision-calibre weapons (from 5.56 to 12.7 mm) in night-time operations, combines a state-of-the-art optronics package with the very latest advances in mechanical design.
SCROME and Thales announce the commercial launch of Cecile-TS, a new family of thermal weapon sights for snipers and marksmen.
