At World ATM Congress 2017, Thales announced the launch of ECOsystem UTM, an advanced solution for Unmanned Aerial System Traffic Management (UTM), built with key technology from partner Unifly.
In April 2022 the Thales/CS consortium was reported to have won the French Defence Ministry PARADE national C-UAS contract.
Thales and UTM company Unifly have signed an agreement to incorporate Unifly’s Validation Engine, a sophisticated software application that conducts real-time validation of drone flight plans, into Thales ECOsystem, a decision support platform for improved aviation operations.
In July 2021 Thales and Operational Solutions Limited (OSL) signed a cooperation agreement to further develop and deliver joint opportunities and solutions in the areas of civil C-UAV and unmanned traffic management (UTM). Under the agreement, Thales will incorporate OSL’s FACE command and control software platform into its civil C-UAV and UTM solutions.
In December 2021 MARSS announced a collaboration with Thales for the delivery of system solutions to provide protection of critical infrastructures against multiple threats.
Thales and DroneShield have a partnership through the Global Supply Chain (GSC) Program, with Thales having integrated DroneShield sensors into Thales military and aerospace broader systems.
