Lufthansa Technik selects Thales for the Pegasus program

Lufthansa Technik has selected Thales for the audio/radio communication system of Germany’s next-generation Signal Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft. The program is led by German sensor solutions specialist HENSOLDT.

Thales will supply its last generation of secured audio/radio management system capable of managing the communications of the flight deck and operators both internally and externally to the aircraft.

This system features full compliance with German military requirements, the highest level of security, and significant weight savings, as well as enhanced reliability compared to traditional technologies.

“Lufthansa Technik’s and Thales Aerospace Communications’ engineering teams have worked very closely to develop the most adapted audio/radio management system for this program. Together we have come up with a highly efficient system that enables the aircraft to fulfill very demanding missions. This new contract confirms our market leadership in terms of audio/radio management systems for missionized single intelligence platforms.” Nicolas Bonleux, Executive Vice-President, Thales Aerospace Communications.
