Technologies for Networked Security

Thales plays a leading international role in the defence, security, transportation and aerospace & space sectors. These markets also reflect Thales Deutschland’s core competences. We have extensive expertise in the civilian security market, particularly when it comes to protecting critical infrastructure and providing security and safety for air, rail, road and marine transportation.

No matter what role we play – general contractor, system integrator, service provider or supplier of individual components – our primary goal is always to enable our customers to improve their own security performance, and thus their efficiency.

We achieve this by effectively networking products and systems from our extensive portfolio, with existing installed systems, and where appropriate with products supplied by our technology partners. The resulting installations enable our customers and clients to analyse situations with pinpoint accuracy, make the right decisions in the shortest possible time, and initiate the most efficient action or response. Our integrated solution approach guarantees the fastest possible route to establishing control of situations, while optimising resource use.

A long tradition of engineering skills and customer experience

In Germany, Thales can look back on decades of traditional engineering skills. Our German customers and partners have already been benefiting from our integrated security solutions for more than a century. They are first and foremost airport and railway network operators, industrial companies and organisations in the field of public security and defence. Today, the transportation systems activity in Ditzingen and the Ulm-based activity that builds travelling wave tubes for satellites are relevant centres of competence within the internationally operating Thales company. Of course in addition to products, systems and solutions from Germany, Thales also offers its German customers access to the entire portfolio of Thales and its technology partners.

Founded on trust, partnership and quality

Trust is the foundation for successful collaboration with our partners. Thales Deutschland works actively in partnership with institutions and companies working in the security field in Germany and abroad. We partner with universities, are an attractive employer in key growth markets, and are regionally committed to local community and social projects:>> Focus on quality: our certificates
