French Thales signs agreements with Ukraine to strengthen front-line support

    WORLD  20 June 2024 - 12:31

    French Thales company has signed three agreements with Ukrainian industry at Eurosatory exhibition, the global event for defence and security, under the aegis of the French Ministry of the Armed Forces and the Ukrainian Ministry of Strategic Industries.

    These agreements aim to strengthen operational support of Ukrainian Armed Forces front-line operations and reinforce local defence capability, the message posted on the website of Thales Group says.

    Domains of cooperation include Electronic Warfare, Tactical Communications, Air Defence Systems and radars, as well as Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

    The three agreements were respectively signed on behalf of Thales by Pascale Sourisse, Senior Executive Vice President, International Development, Christophe Salomon, Executive Vice President, Secure Communications and Information Systems and Hervé Dammann, Executive Vice President, Land and Air Systems.

    Two agreements concern one of the enterprises of the Joint Stock Company, Ukrainian Defence Industry:

    The first agreement announces Thales’s intent to create a joint venture in Ukraine, which will facilitate the delivery and operations of equipment for the Group’s portfolio of defence systems, including Electronic warfare, as well as Tactical communications equipment, Air Defence systems and radars.

    The second agreement is specific to Electronic Warfare, where Thales will provide extensive maintenance, testing and specialized training. This agreement aims to develop local maintenance capability within Ukraine, which will reduce repair and maintenance cycles and ensure the best operational availability.

    In a separate and third agreement, signed with Ukrainian FRDM company specializing in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), Thales intends to co-develop and manufacture with FRDM an Unmanned Aircraft system able to carry and release munitions.
