Thales acquires Visionix and expands avionics portfolio
Thales has completed the acquisition of the Visionix helmet mounted display (HMD) and InterSense motion tracking businesses formerly owned by Gentex Corporation. The new company, Thales Visionix, Inc., is operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Thales.
This acquisition is a strategic fit that complements Thales’ global portfolio of Helmet Mounted Sight and Display systems for rotary and fixed-wing platforms. It gives Thales the ability to offer highly capable HMD technology amidst rigorous budget constraints within the market.
