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.
