It is a fresh-faced fifty year old who will welcome thousands of visitors from across the world on October 23-26 at the Parc des Expositions in Le Bourget near Paris. Created in 1968, the Euronaval show has grown over the years to become an unmissable event for experts in the naval defense, maritime safety and security industries. Thales will naturally play a leading role once again this year.
Since the previous edition in 2016, the growing escalation in tensions in different zones of the globe has led to a significant acceleration in the capacities of navies and coast guards. Moreover, the level of threats that naval units have and will have to face has also increased considerably: cyber aggressions, hyper-fast anti-ship missiles, ever more silent submarines, very high velocity torpedoes, stealth aircraft, swarm attacks, and attacks by small craft or USV and drones, mines, etc.
In this context, Thales has established itself as a major player in the sector through the Group’s global nature: global by its international dimension, by the spectrum of its activities - from sensors to complete systems -, global, finally, through its “end-to-end” capabilities, from the conception to the support of fleets. A designer of sensors and effectors of excellence, Thales is also an integrator that provides its clients with expertise in both purely military as well as dual (civil / military) systems and systems of systems.
In addition to the excellence of its sensors, Thales is the only defence company that masters the major technologies that will make the difference in tomorrow’s naval operations: big data, AI, connectivity and cybersecurity. Its strong innovation capabilities provide customers with either sources of savings, or effect multipliers and factors of military superiority in operations.
For all these reasons, Thales knows exactly how to accompany its clients in the naval domain at each decisive moment.
Mines: low-cost, lethal, and legion. Read on, to find out what Thales, world leader in naval mine countermeasures, is developing. Self-financed R&D at €1bn annually, strategic acquisitions, such as that of Big Data pioneer, Guavus, advancing Human-Machine Teaming, C...
Thales have created a cloud-based source of military intelligence for the oceans. Developed partly in hackathons by the Ecole 42, the Cloud of the Sea platform is continuously refined by users, using a “practice not theory” approach, with clients stating their needs and...
The digital transformation delivers a ‘new navy’ with surveillance, targeting, defense, and search and attack tools taken to unprecedented levels of accuracy. But the real key is precision training. Read on.
The disruptive technologies of the digital revolution can make the difference between being just a player on the chessboard of the electronic spectrum or mastering it for electronic warfare superiority.
With Thales’ Sea Fire radars, Planar Flank Array Sonars, SLAM-F mine countermeasures, and advanced aerial and underwater drones, today's navies are on the digital cutting edge. Read this to find out what big data, AI, connectivity, and cybersecurity are able to do ...
Thales is working on “Deep Learning” algorithms capable of, for example, recognizing the particular sound of a submarine underwater. Here’s what you need to know about what AI is doing for the navy today.
