It has been a great week for Thales at the Singapore Air Show 2018, one of Asia’s largest and most important aerospace and defense exhibitions. From 6 to 11 February, Thales was present as an advocate of cooperation on cybersecurity in aviation, to announce recent contracts – and of course to showcase its latest innovations for airlines, airports, air traffic management and the battlefield!
A series of business successes
In addition, our long-time customer and partner Airbus has entrusted its avionics components repair operations in the Asia-Pacific to Thales, with all repair operations set to be done out of Singapore.
And as we move forward in digital, Thales signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to collaborate on the development of next-generation air traffic management (ATM) technologies, including through the application of artificial intelligence in ATM. Within the region, Thales also secured ATM contracts in Laos and Malaysia.
The full press releases can be read on the show’s dedicated event page on the Group site.
