Thales to invest in next-gen technology
Thales announces a major investment in next generation aircraft communications technology with the commitment to a jointly funded £20 million research project in partnership with the government funded Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and the opening of a state-of-the-art customer engagement suite in the UK. This investment reflects the strategic value that Thales and the UK Government attaches to UK-based research and development and ongoing commitment to a strong UK Aerospace industry in a global marketplace. The research project is part of a portfolio of strategic Thales investments to develop unique technology to address this global market. The aim is to position the UK as a leader in the field which will create 145 high value jobs in the UK supply chain.
