Bedrijfsprofiel Thales Nederland

The world of creating simulators in the defense industry is very much like building virtual worlds in computer games, but from the ground up and with may interesting technical challenges in relation to hardware choices, software solutions, sub-systems, performance, etc. The end goal is to allow Thales to test the systems and offer realistic virtual training worlds for the end-user within our TACTICOS product.

At Thales there are many teams that require simulators for their sub-systems. Within detailed virtual worlds they mirror the characteristics and behavior of radars, cannons, missiles and much more. Currently, the commonalities between these simulators, such as video streams and supporting frameworks, are coordinated and developed within our team. Later, when teams start using these frameworks, a wider coordination of ideas, processes, support, feature development, requirements and design is needed from our team.

These simulations are used to simulate and test our TACTICOS software. TACTICOS is a software product that runs on tactical displays on-board naval vessels such as full-size frigates and destroyers. It provides situational awareness to naval vessels during a wide range of mission packages, allowing them to interpret their surroundings (up to hundreds of kilometers away) and to respond as needed. These missions range from humanitarian assistance during earthquakes to combatting piracy and drug smuggling, military engagements and more. TACTICOS technology is used on board more than 160 ships operated by 25 navies worldwide.
