Thales’ EW Solution Selected For France’s New Sigint Aircraft Program

France’s Ministry of the Armed Forces has awarded a contract to integrate Thales' Universal Electronic Warfare Capability (CUGE) on board three Falcon Epicure jets.

This new programme will strengthen electronic intelligence capabilities and thereby help the French Armed Forces to perform their strategic information gathering functions to better anticipate eventualities.

With its expertise in the four key digital technologies - platform connectivity, big data, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity - Thales has a key role to play in these developments. This expertise underpins Thales's capacity to develop the future sensors that will equip Dassault Aviation's Falcon Epicure aircraft. The Universal Electronic Warfare Capability payload will intercept radio and radar signals simultaneously.

Early this week, the French Minister for the Armed Forces, Florence Parly, announced a new strategic electronic intelligence aircraft program to replace the two aging Transall C-160G Gabriel aircraft that currently perform the mission for the Armée de l’Air. Known as Epicure, the new aircraft will employ a Dassault Falcon business jet as its platform.
