Thales selected for DIRISI logistics information system
Thales has revealed that it will develop, implement and maintain the future logistics information system for DIRISI (Direction interarmées des réseaux d’infrastructure et des systèmes d’information de Défense) under a contract announced on 16 October.
According to Thales, this maintenance control system and management of technical standards will further unify the transformation of DIRSI support, and will build on the company’s previous industrial experience managing equipment and implementation of logistics information systems to support critical systems.
The company already has already implemented complete supply chains, including logistics information systems, under the NATO contract to secure communications in Afghanistan and the contract to maintain operational condition of the military telecommunications network from the Syracuse III satellites.
Gérard Herby, VP Customer Service and Support, said the contract is ‘the recognition of the experience and ability of Thales to develop reliable and durable solutions, adapted to the challenges of the transformation of the French armed forces.’
