Long-range detection and identification of air and surface targets provides unparalleled situational awareness capability while ensuring the aircraft’s self-protection. The most sophisticated techniques in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance, allow to give to the End User the means to take the right decision at the right time.
New generation multi-function targeting pod
Multi-function targeting pod
DAMOCLES is currently in service on a range of platforms with France and a number of countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia and will continue to evolve and co-exist in aircraft fleets alongside the next generations of optronic systems. Its modular design allows for future upgrades, including integral image-processing software, additional display information and an optional bi-directional data-link to exchange imagery with ground forces.
Infra-Red Optronic Search, Track and Identification
FSO – Front Sector Optronics
Detect enemy aircraft while being undetected and immune to jamming
NAV-FLIR - Day/night navigation and attack FLIR.
NAV-FLIR insures flight security during Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground navigation phases and Taxi way
It enables the pilot to fire conventional unguided weapons in Air-to-Ground missions
EVS - Enhanced Vision System For Pilots
It increases security at all flight phases (taxiing, takeoff, medium/low altitude flight, approach, landing) Increase
the pilot awareness:
• at night,
• in poor weather conditions, for a perfect visibility of the environment
Composed of an airborne pod and a ground/shipboard station, AREOS combines state-of-the-art imaging technologies with high-performance datalinks. These advanced functions save precious time in the sensor-to-shooter loop to quickly meet evolving mission demands, including the new requirements of peace-keeping operations.
Combat-proven with the French Air Force and Navy on board the Rafale F3, the system is fully compliant with NATO standards for integration into large-scale C4ISR systems and coalition operations.
Wide Area Surveillance Systems
Thales’s Avni system offers a reliable and effective solution, which provides high resolution, wide area
surveillance from small, light aircraft. Easy to operate and cost effective with no change required to current operations when integrated into existing.
DB STARS - Dual Band Stand-Off Airborne Reconnaissance Sensor
State of the Art Sensors covering full spectrum that can be packaged according to aircraft
Sweep-IR Family - High Resolution Reconnaissance SensorSWEEP-IR family in service on multiple aircraft types
Ground Intel and Image Exploitation Systems
NIES - Networked Image Exploitation System
MIRAS - Multicolor InfraRed Alerting Sensor
MIRAS is a passive missile warning system. It Detects, tracks and gives warning of hostile missile. MIRAS is a key contributor in the self-protection system.
