Thales is exhibiting a wide range of products for in-flight entertainment (IFE), air traffic management (ATM) and defense systems here at Dubai Airshow 2013 (on Stand B13).
In the air defense marketplace, showgoers can see the Thales Rapid range of integrated weapon systems (from sensors to fire), the LMM and StarStreak armored vehicle platform missiles and the 3D Ground Master radar family. The ThalesRaytheonSystems partnership has delivered more than 300 air defense radars to 26 countries, according to Thales.
Thales is also displaying its military communication and identification equipment, as well as optronics devices. These are used for “evaluating critical situations at both tactical and strategic levels,” according to Thales.
In civil aviation, the French company is here with its passenger IFE and connectivity systems and an ATM simulation tool, dubbed ScanSim. Thales is also promoting its airport security solutions, which integrate security, telecommunications, public information and airport information technology systems as well as an overall management layer.
Thales continues research and development work on its futuristic Avionics 2020 flight deck demonstrator, but has not brought that to the show.
