PARIS - AirAsia has selected Thales for the equipment of avionics systems on their new fleet of 304 A320neos. The contract will also include a long-term Repair-By-The-Hour support agreement. Deliveries of the aircraft started in October 2016.

Thales will equip the 304 single-aisles with its Flight Management System (FMS), the navigation solution of choice for Airbus aircraft, alongside the THALES/ACSS T3CAS2 surveillance platform, the preferred solution for all Airbus single aisle aircraft. The new fleet will also feature Low Range Radio Altimeter (LRRA) and Emergency Location Transmitters (ELT).

Thales has been partnering with AirAsia, leading LCC in Asia, since 2005, forging a close relationship in support of the airline’s growth strategy. AirAsia already equips their entire Airbus fleet with Thales systems and has selected the group for all maintenance and support operations for Thales systems equipped across their entire A320 fleet of 200 aircraft. In addition to the avionics suite, Thales will continue to provide a Repair-by-The-Hour (RBTH) long-term maintenance contract to support AirAsia’s fleet expansion. The agreement provides guaranteed turnaround times on repairs and offers a commitment of reliability with reduced operational risk.

WASHINGTON - Estonian defense solutions provider Milrem is developing smart unmanned ground vehicles with concepts of how to use them on the modern battlefield as adaptive systems to minimize dangerous risks to warfighters. Milrem will launch joint product efforts with Kongsberg and QinetiQ North America this week.

Milrem has developed the first fully modular unmanned ground vehicle with a hybrid diesel-electric drive, the THeMIS. This open architecture system may be configured mission-specific as required to be used in various combat roles.

With a 1:1 high payload of 750 kg / 1650 lbs., THeMIS may also be equipped with a remote weapon station with embedded target detection and acquisition systems to provide fire support.

A remotely operated robotic fire support and force protection system has been developed with military innovators Kongsberg and QinetiQ North America (QNA) and is being introduced at the Ground Robotics Capabilities Exhibition & Conference 2017 (GRCCE) this week. This joint effort features the THeMIS unmanned ground vehicle, the Protector Remote Weapon Station, and QNA’s UGV control systems.

"This is a great opportunity to collaborate with such an esteemed company as KONGSBERG and continue our cooperation with QNA. Integration of this remote weapon station is another example of how easily the THeMIS can be configured for different applications. These various applications form a system of robotic warfare capabilities" explained Kuldar Vaarsi, CEO of Milrem.

Last October the companies introduced the Titan UGV for dismounted troop support that features the THeMIS UGV with QNA's UGV control technology - the Tactical Robot Controller (TRC) and Robotic Appliqué Kit (RAK). This vehicle will also be displayed at GRCCE.

In parallel, Milrem is developing technologies for military forces to enable how unmanned ground systems may be used in combat as an efficient and powerful manned-unmanned teaming system that reduces battlefield risks to warfighters.

The end results of this program, known as Digital Infantry Battlefield Solution (DIBS) will result in recommendations for military doctrine in order to effectively use the capability of robotic systems.
