Thales announced during DSA 2022 that it has signed a strategic agreement with PAL Aerospace to jointly develop the next-generation AMASCOS system.

PAL Aerospace and Thales used the Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2022 exhibition in Kuala Lumpur to sign a strategic agreement to co-develop a next-generation system for airborne maritime patrol missions.

The agreement ‘leverages decades of diverse special mission solutions to co-develop mission-ready capabilities’, Thales noted in a 30 March statement.

According to Thales, the targeted capabilities for the next-generation AMASCOS system include machine learning; computer vision; systems support for UAVs and optionally piloted aircraft; underwater warfare defence; and integration of space-based data into a complete mission lifecycle for dissemination in a common operating picture.

These capabilities will be developed jointly by PAL Aerospace and Thales at their respective facilities in Canada, France and the UAE.
