Thales at Eurosatory 2022: serving the armed forces now and in the future

  • Thales will be present at Eurosatory 2022 from June 13 to 17 (pavilion C500).
  • The Thales pavilion is organized around an immersive experience of an operational mission, from the mission preparation to its post-mission analysis, including its execution on the field.
  • Technological innovations will be presented exclusively, such as the Combat Digital Platform, the VisioLoc® feature available on Sophie cameras and the new generation of fire training, Tactical Engagement Analysis.

In a constantly changing world, subject to competition between states and asymmetric threats, Thales meets all the needs of armed forces through a vision based on a global understanding of the threats, the missions to be carried out and the necessary capability challenges. Based on the four main pillars of digital technology - connectivity, big data, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity - Thales supports its customers in their digital transformation, enabling armies to stay one step ahead.

Thanks to its global vision of defense issues in the digital age, Thales has unique capabilities as an integrator and intelligence provider across the entire land domain. From smart sensors and combat systems to soldier equipment and connectivity solutions for the digital battlefield, our systems deliver information superiority and enable deployed forces to stay in charge one step ahead. Most of those solutions are “combat proven” and are engaged on a daily basis in the theater of operations.

In the form of an immersive experience, the Thales pavilion is organized into five major zones that retrace the course of a predominantly air-land operational mission: force readiness, mission preparation, command and control, combat, country and force protection.

At this event, Thales will present technological innovations that will make collaborative combat accessible and a reality today, offering forces a decisive technological advantage:

  • The Combat Digital Platform, a cybersecure platform designed to support collaborative engagements by land forces in the battlespace of the future in a unified system that allows them to understand, decide and act faster than the adversary.
  • The VisioLoc® function, embedded in Sophie Optima and Sophie Ultima thermal imagers, ushers in a new era of portable soldier optronics for high-intensity collaborative combat. This new function enables land forces to generate precise geolocation coordinates in any environment, even when no satellite signal is available.
  • This 2022 edition will be the opportunity to discover and test our Tactical Engagement Analysis solution, a new generation of firearms training that allows you to train very easily, wherever you are and regardless of the weapon you carry.

Registration for press briefings is open, to find out more about these innovations and Thales' core solutions such as air defense and protection radars, our anti-drone solutions and connectivity challenges.

After recruiting 7,000 people worldwide in 2021, Thales is stepping up its hiring policy and recruiting 11,000 employees worldwide, including 4,000 in France (permanent and fixed-term contracts). In addition to these recruitments, 3,500 internships and apprenticeships are being offered, which are key training and hiring opportunities within the Group. Candidates interested in the positions available at Thales can learn more and apply online here.

« By leveraging key technologies of digital transformation, we precisely address the needs of land forces in terms of decision support, robotics, collaborative combat, data processing, intelligence fusion, and protection and resilience. Our solutions are designed to act faster and stay one step ahead, now and in the future. » Marc Darmon, Executive Vice-President, Secure Communications & Information, Thales.

« Eurosatory 2022 is an event that our teams have been waiting for, as they are keen to renew this human contact with our customers. We will be presenting our latest thinking and achievements in the air-land sector, which serve a major ambition: sovereignty, security and stability. » Christophe Salomon, Executive Vice-President, Land and Air Systems, Thales.
