Once the Gotthard Base Tunnel will be put into operation in 2017 it will be the longest rail tunnel in the world'stretching over 57 km and connecting the Swiss Italian and Swiss German regions with each other. Due to advanced signalling solutions such as Thales ETCS level 2 this tunnel will accommodate in two separate tubes more than 300 trains per day. As a consequence travel speed will increase from 140 km to 250 km per hour and transit time between Zurich and Milan will be reduced from 3 h 40 to 2 h 40. The Gotthard tunnel will strengthen the shift of transalpine transit traffic from road to rail and is part of NRLA (New Rail Link through the Alps) initiated by the Swiss authorities with the Lotschberg Tunnel inaugurated in 2007.

Thales Alenia Space has signed a contract with the UK Space Agency to work on MicroCarb a joint UK-French satellite mission which will measure sources and sinks of carbon the principal greenhouse gas driving global warming. It is the first European mission intended to characterise greenhouse gas fluxes on Earth's surface and gauge how much carbon is being absorbed by oceans and forests the main sinks on the planet.

Comprising 4 satellites (Sentinel-3A, -3B, -3C and -3D), Sentinel-3's mission is part of the European program Copernicus. Within the scope of Copernicus, Thales Alenia Space is prime contractor for the Sentinel-1 and -3 missions (each including 4 satellites), and will also provide the ground segment on the second mission, and two instruments for Sentinel-6. Sentinel-3A was successfully orbitd in February 2016.

    cloud, DARMON MARC, EUROSATORY, Eurosatory-2018, Marc Darmon, Marc_DARMON, Microsoft, PARTNER, Partnership, Thales and Microsoft today announce a preferred partnership for the development of a common Defence Cloud solution for armed forces. The solution that will be jointly developed by the two groups is based on the Microsoft Azure Stack platform a services-oriented and flexible hybrid cloud environment that will be fully cyber secured and adapted to military resilience constraints by Thales' Thales and Microsoft partner to develop a unique Defence Cloud solution for armed forces. Thanks to this new solution Thales as a field-proven trusted integrator and Microsoft as a trusted Cloud provider will accompany the digital transformation of armed forces both in the command center and on the Operations theater.
