“In addition to the increasing complexity of the theaters of operations, the evolving threat landscape is an issue for Armed Forces during both air surveillance and threat interception operations. Asymmetric warfare takes place against smaller and more agile targets, flying at low altitude, and capable of rapidly altering their trajectory to evade radars. In this context, the armed forces need state-of-the-art solutions to adapt easily to these new threats,” commented Pierre Andurand, Vice-president responsible for the Ground Master Radar segment.
Within the club, users of Thales air surveillance solutions share their experiences in terms of protecting the airspace as well as the issues they face in dealing with new threats. Users are able to give their feedback so that air surveillance solutions can continue to improve and remain efficient against new threats.
“This event represents a real space for exchange and collaborative work between Thales and the users of its solutions but also between operatives who have the opportunity to share their experiences while strengthening their relationships.” explained Lionel de Castellane, Vice President, and Head of Air Defense Systems Sales.
“Some of our customers have trusted us for more than 50 years to provide their radars and air surveillance systems. We develop solutions and services that ensure their operational permanence to face every decisive moment and thus guarantee the Permanent Security Posture*” added Lionel de Castellane.
Note (*): The Permanent Posture of Aviation Security is the term used in France to refer to the air defense system above the national territory or "sky police"
