Thales opens Center of Excellence for radar and integrated sensors in Singapore
The official opening of Thales’ Center of Excellence (CoE) for Radar and Integrated Sensors in Singapore was held recently and was inaugurated by Her Excellency Mrs Lilianne Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, the Netherlands.
The CoE 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 Center 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.
