New generation multi-function targeting pod
Designed entirely around operational feedback from users, TALIOS is the latest addition to the Thales family. With its open architecture and a high level of functional integration, TALIOS is the first optronic pod to cover the entire critical decision chain from intelligence gathering to weapon delivery. With the latest generation of high-resolution sensors and high-precision line-of-sight stabilisation, capabilities range from deep strike with long-range missiles and bombs to air-to-air target identification and close air support, and include the rapidly emerging requirement of Non-Traditional Information, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (NTISR). Permanent Vision™. Very wide-angle combined vision (synthetic and real) is one of the key features of the TALIOS pod, providing critical contextual information and making the pod a key component of the pilot's visual environment throughout the mission. All functions will be standard for both French and international customers. With its open architecture, the TALIOS pod is conceived as a 'plug & fight' system for integration on all existing fighters, ready to incorporate new functionalities.
Multi-function targeting pod
DAMOCLES is currently in service on a range of platforms with France and a number of countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia and will continue to evolve and co-exist in aircraft fleets alongside the next generations of optronic systems. Its modular design allows for future upgrades, including integral image-processing software, additional display information and an optional bi-directional data-link to exchange imagery with ground forces.
Infra-Red Optronic Search, Track and Identification
FSO – Front Sector Optronics
Detect enemy aircraft while being undetected and immune to jamming
NAV-FLIR - Day/night navigation and attack FLIR.
It enables the pilot to fire conventional unguided weapons in Air-to-Ground missions
EVS – Enhanced vision system for Pilots
It increases security at all flight phases (taxiing, takeoff, medium/low altitude flight, approach, landing) Increase
the pilot awareness:
• at night,
• in poor weather conditions, for a perfect visibility of the environment
Composed of an airborne pod and a ground/shipboard station, AREOS combines state-of-the-art imaging technologies with high-performance datalinks. These advanced functions save precious time in the sensor-to-shooter loop to quickly meet evolving mission demands, including the new requirements of peace-keeping operations.
Combat-proven with the French Air Force and Navy on board the Rafale F3, the system is fully compliant with NATO standards for integration into large-scale C4ISR systems and coalition operations.
Wide Area Surveillance Systems
surveillance from small, light aircraft. Easy to operate and cost effective with no change required to current operations when integrated into existing.
