Thales to support Royal Navy’s communications systems

13th October 2017 - 10:36 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has received a seven-year contract worth £100 million to provide through-life support for communications systems of the Royal Navy’s fleet, the company announced in early October.

The awarded contract provides an intelligent, unified approach to supporting the Thales communications systems, including those fitted to the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers coming into service.

The contract will see the company maintain, support and manage the Royal Navy’s communications systems across the majority of the service's fleet.

Thales will support systems aboard the new aircraft carriers and the Type 45 Destroyers, as well as older systems such as those on the landing platform docks and other vessels.

The systems equipped aboard the aircraft carriers enable the ship’s company to talk to each other within the vessel, its aircraft, the navy and associated task groups, allies, civilian vessels and air traffic securely.
