Thales to expand big data capabilities

24th May 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales, in partnership with Sopra Steria, has been selected by the French defence procurement agency (DGA) to implement the second phase of the ARTEMIS programme, the company announced on 23 May.

ARTEMIS is an architecture for very large-scale processing and exploitation of multi-source data. The programme aims to provide a sovereign big data solution to keep pace with exponential growth in data volumes, transmission speeds and formats, and involves major changes in the design of information systems.

The companies will improve the platform’s capabilities and extend its resilience and adequacy. Thales and Sopra Steria will test the solution in the areas of cybersecurity, intelligence, image processing and maritime situational awareness. The demonstrator will be rolled out progressively at four sites.

The platform will be used by the French border agency, justice system and homeland security, and will also be available to other government agencies.

Laurent Giovachini, deputy general manager, Sopra-Steria, said: ‘Building our partnership with Thales based on complementary competencies unites the dynamism of small innovative companies and the vision of two larger partner firms striving towards digital sovereignty.

‘Our past experiences give us a full knowledge of military professions but also an expertise in civil technology which is experiencing a boom of innovation.’
