From fixed and rotary-wing platforms to people-pleasing entertainment systems, we supply some of the world's major airlines and governments with cutting-edge technology, equipment and service solutions. And we lead the way in terms of sophisticated onboard systems and full-flight training simulators.
The European Space Agency, the European Global Navigation Satellite System Agency, Copernicus: The European Earth Observation Programme - with clients like these, it's no surprise that Thales is Europe's number one provider of civil and military satellites.
We design, integrate, test and operate high-performance satellite technologies across the world. This involves supplying weather satellites and infrared atmospheric instruments. We develop radars and design probes for space missions too; and if that's not enough to whet your appetite, we're also a worldwide leader when it comes to the telecommunications payloads which receive, amplify and redirect the signals that keep the world connected.
Getting commuters from A to B safely and on time is the service our customers take pride in delivering every day.

From electronic warfare and sensor systems like the state-of-the-art SMART-L 3D multi-beam radar, to precision-guided missile systems such as STARstreak, few companies can match our ability to offer proven solutions to protect soldiers, sailors and air personnel in the defence of national interests.
Our expertise is unsurpassed in the design and supply of critical systems for promoting the safety and security of people, places and sensitive information.
