Thales Aerospace is a global technology leader in the air transport industry. Governments, airports, airlines, pilots, crews and passengers rely on Thales Aerospace to make flight safer, easier and more efficient.

The company designs, delivers and supports the systems that keep the skies running, from air traffic management, training and simulation solutions to inflight services.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT has collaborated with Thales Aerospace over a number of years in its leading work relating to air traffic management and inflight connectivity for airlines.

At World ATM Congress 2017, we signed an agreement with Thales Aerospace to develop and promote air traffic control (ATC) datalink solutions, continuing our long-running collaboration in the field.

The agreement reiterated our commitment to the joint Data Link Front-End Processor (DL-FEP) solution being developed to address the datalink services rule of the Single European Sky programme. The DL-FEP consists of Context Management and Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) applications associated with ATC automation systems.

The DL-FEP product is providing operational datalink services for EUROCONTROL MUAC2, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS), Skyguide and UK NATS. Additionally, the DL-FEP has undergone enhancements to support the SESAR 2020 I4D Very Large Scale Demonstrations.

The agreement also covers joint promotion and marketing of Thales Aerospace ProATN products to air navigation service providers. This includes the ProATN router, the industry’s most widely used router.

For inflight connectivity, we have worked with Thales Aerospace to deploy our market-leading IFC services aboard Thales Aerospace’s hardware solutions, including for longstanding customer Singapore Airlines.
