Talios qualified by French DGA

22nd November 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales’ new Talios optronic pod has successfully completed qualification testing by the French defence procurement agency (DGA), the company announced on 19 November.

Talios combines high-resolution EO and IR sensors with line-of-sight stabilisation and advanced image processing capabilities. In addition to its advanced reconnaissance and target identification performance, the new pod provides a long-range threat engagement capability to counter fixed and moving targets.

The pod's through-life support system has also been qualified, including the SmartFleet fleet management and predictive maintenance solution, which prevents equipment failures and increases overall fleet availability. The logistic support system includes a transport solution to attach the pod to the aircraft pylon without requiring any other tooling.

The Talios optronic targeting pod is one of the major components of the new Rafale F3R standard for the French Air Force and French Navy. Deliveries of the first series-produced systems to the French forces will begin before end of 2018 and continue until 2022. The system is also compatible with other combat aircraft types.
