Thales and DCI have joined forces to deliver high-level training in electronic warfare. Through this partnership, the two companies will combine their skills and offer comprehensive and innovative solutions to even better meet the needs and expectations of military customers around the world.
Thales and DCI have developed a catalogue of common training modules focusing on the various aspects of electronic warfare (EW) today. Thales will contribute its technical expertise. The company develops, delivers and supports state-of-the-art EW systems for more than 50 countries. It also designs EW simulators and provides training in the use and maintenance of these systems worldwide.
DCI will contribute its operational expertise. Since 1985, DCI experts have been delivering training using latest educational software, interactive simulation tools and practical laboratory exercises combined with visits to specialist units of the French armed forces. Courses are designed to familiarise trainees with the relevant work methods and help them make the best possible use of their EW equipment, both for training exercises and operational deployments.
“We share a common vision with Thales and its teams and together we’ve developed a highly efficient approach to training, based on the combination of French excellence in electronic warfare technologies and operations,” says Henri Rouby, Executive Vice President of DCI-AIRCO. “I believe that our innovative and integrated training solutions will be a key differentiator and will enable the French team to constantly meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.”
Merry Michaux, Vice President for Thales’s military aerospace support and services business, added: “Our complementary skills and flexible approach will ensure our customers benefit from real technical and operational efficiency as they seek to maximise their electronic warfare capabilities. Thales’s presence in 56 countries and close working relations with operational armed forces personnel will further extend the partnership’s international reach to better serve customers and meet their specific national requirements.”
