To improve interconnectivity between platforms, Thales launches NEXEN

Air combat is becoming increasingly reliant on the interconnected platforms that exchange digital data with each other. Real-time data correlation provides information superiority to the armed forces. Their missions require many means of communication to be managed without worrying about which transmission channel is to be used. Thales therefore proposes NEXEN, a secure communications server which gives pilots a reliable and simplified source of connectivity.

At the heart of aeronautical connectivity, NEXEN integrates all the functions necessary for a military aircraft to exchange data in real-time. Thanks to NEXEN, all resources can be shared; with each security level assigned its own dedicated transmission chain. With its ANSSI-certified enclosure, NEXEN guarantees not only the separation of data flows according to their level of confidentiality but also the implementation of the best cybersecurity protections. The pilot is able to manage all radios at the same time, limiting the overall workload. Mission systems are able to efficiently exchange their respective data in real-time. Therefore, this solution will allow pilots to focus better on their core mission during moments of critical decision-making.

THALES at the International Paris Air Show

Alex Cresswell - Thales Executive Vice President for Land and Air Systems

Before the next International Paris Air Show (www.siae.fr/en ) to be held at Le Bourget from 17 to 23 June 2019, Alex Cresswell, Thales Executive Vice President for Land and Air Systems has returned to the components of modern warfare. Particularly, he emphasized the globalization of the battlefield, the saturation of attacks using conventional means now fully interconnected, sophisticated electronic tools and attacks with cyber weapons. The digital and connected revolution for network warfare requires real-time information, available to all players in the battlefield: what is called collaborative combat.

 

The THALES Group makes its contribution through products such as TALIOS or the GF 300 multifunction Radar.

The TALIOS optronic Pod features high-resolution electro-optical and infrared sensors, line-of-sight stabilization and high-performance image processing to identify targets at both day and night for deep strikes at long range. Embedded Artificial Intelligence will enable almost instantaneous in-flight processing of large volumes of collected data to retrieve and identify targets, and then engage them safely. The TALIOS Pod was qualified in 2018 by the French DG and is being deployed on the F3R RAFALE standard.

Presented for the first time at the Paris Air Show 2017, the Radar GF 300, family Ground Fire multifunction radars, is fully digital. Equipped with active antenna technology (AESA), it is very compact, deployable in less than 15 minutes, mobile on any ground and air transportable. It has its place in the context of surveillance and air defense missions, including anti-ballistic missiles. The DGA is currently consulting THALES on the GF 300 in view of the final choice of the radar that will equip the SAMP / T NG program; the decision will be made by the end of 2019.

The June 6, 2019 announcement of Thales's acquisition of the American company PSIBERNETIX is in keeping with the logic of Artificial Intelligence (AI) equipment for these collaborative combat tools. Originally made famous by its aerial combat application called ALPHA, which consistently defeated the world’s top pilots in simulated air combat, Psibernetix is a pioneer in computationally efficient AI technologies. www.thalesgroup.com
