Thales, digital by nature
In 2017, Thales has over 10,000 software developers (or equivalent) and a total workforce of 63,000 people. From ocean depths and sonars, to geostationary orbits and their super high-speed telecommunication satellites, the company has a far-reaching presence, carrying out missions and providing services whose vital importance is not always known to the general public.
The challenge of connectivity
This need for constant, secure connectivity goes far beyond the military sphere. For example, airlines today are now obliged to offer passengers a permanent Wi-Fi connection and a smartphone network during flights. Once again, Thales has here also designed a range of solutions.
As the Group’s technological foundation has two components, it can find potential uses in the defence industry as well as the civilian world.
Sensors for observing and analysing all environments
An integral part of our everyday lives, but without us even realising it, they offer us the chance to interact with our environment via digital sensors on our smartphones, which are kept completely secure in terms of our confidential information.
One priority: security
Staying at the cutting edge
