A mature approach to managed attribution

Robust risk management systems
Our HSE management systems include an OSINT specific decision fatigue and vicarious trauma management program. Thales protects our analyst’s mental health through content moderation, regular debriefs and engagement with professional services. Thales’ Smart Working initiative provides a working environment and the tools that allow employees to do their jobs under optimum conditions.

The TIC leverages a multi-platform ecosystem to ensure resiliency and redundancy during the collection process. Thales works closely with industry partners to remain at the cutting edge of OSINT technology and build bespoke tools to solve unique intelligence requirements, capture telemetry at a range of thresholds and ensure exhaustive open source data collection across the surface, deep and dark web.
A mature application of the intelligence cycle
We have built an OSINT capability that leverages best practice intelligence processes to deliver tactical, operational and strategic products compliant with ISO 9001:2015. Policymakers and decision takers can have confidence that their products will be credible, relevant, timely, consumable and actionable.
