Thales has been chosen by the French Navy (Marine Nationale) to provide through-life support services for almost all of its simulators.

The six-year contract with the navy’s fleet support department (SSF) calls for the support of 41 simulators at six naval facilities in France.

These simulators cover a broad spectrum of operations and all deployment contexts, from shipboard system maintenance to surface vessel crew training as well as firing simulators for the MISTRAL surface-to-air missile, 12.7 mm and 20 mm guns and other weapons.

They are used to train the crews of all French Navy surface vessels, including its multi-mission frigates, air defence frigates and the FS Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier. The new TLS contract covers simulators delivered from the 1990s to today, including systems currently on order.
