January 28, 2013

The Thales Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Radar and Integrated Sensors in Singapore has been officially opened and is the result of a close cooperation between Thales operations in the Netherlands and Singapore.

The mission is to increase the amount and speed of innovation in naval radar and integrated sensors. This is achieved by performing research and technology activities in close coordination with three key assets of the Singapore environment: top-level research institutes, dynamic industry and an innovative and technology focused defence organisation.

“This Centre of Excellence paves the way to promising collaborative innovations in the field of radars and integrated sensors,” said Jean-Noel Stock, Chief Executive Officer of Thales Solutions Asia, Singapore.

This new centre will complement and leverage the Singapore R&T environment in the field of Radar and Integrated Sensors and benefit both Singapore and Thales Group by promoting innovation, creating new knowledge and new opportunities.

The company envisages that the CoE will benefit Singapore and: Provide an efficient platform to share skills, capabilities and knowledge, accelerate the development of solutions for high-end requirements, generate a foundation for engineering of innovative products, and contribute to strengthening technical skill-sets available in Singapore by employing and developing local engineers.
