Thales revealed on 26 September that its SkyView air C4I system has been selected by the Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement to upgrade the country’s FLORAKO air surveillance system.

The system will provide 24/7 surveillance and protection of Switzerland’s national airspace, territory and populations.

According to the company, SkyView correlates civil and military data in real time, providing an overall picture of national airspace and allowing faster decisions to be made. It also enables operators to conduct air policing operations and detect and respond to airborne threats.

SkyView currently processes data from over 600 radars and interconnects with external systems via more than 60 types of interfaces.

‘I would like to thank [the Swiss Air Force] for its continued trust in us for a project that is vital to Switzerland’s national sovereignty,’ Thomas Got, Thales vice president, said. ‘SkyView 4.0 is an all-digital system incorporating the latest Big Data and artificial intelligence technologies, and will provide the Swiss Air Force with a highly capable solution for airspace surveillance and air command and control.’
