SIMSOFT INDUSTRY AND THE MILITARY BUSINESS
Thales, one of the world’s largest suppliers of defence equipment, calls on innovative companies to support the development of innovative solutions for the military sector. Well-established start-ups and defence firms find strong incentives to overcome differences and team up to propose new solutions to the armed forces.
An example that the company recently presented at its InnovDays event is an augmented reality headset for soldiers, with an integrated Intelligent Vocal Assistant and a navigation system that also shows the positions of other soldiers. It will be ready to be sold in the next two years and was built by combining Thales’ know-how with startup technology that wasn’t necessarily military-oriented in the first place.
Thales has partnered with SIMSOFT INDUSTRY, an innovative French start-up based near Toulouse that develops intelligent voice assistants, mainly for industrial applications. He also used gesture recognition software from Clay AIR, a Paris-based startup with research labs near Bordeaux and offices in California, which also markets its hand-tracking technology for use in cars and virtual reality gaming headsets.
Sample cooperation Thales / StartUP
Thales, one of the world’s largest defense suppliers, is calling for pitches from entrepreneurs in the region, backing the military sector’s emergence as a market for collaboration. Startups from the business and consumer worlds and well-established defense companies are finding strong incentives to overcome their differences and team up.
One example the company demoed recently at its InnovDays event is an augmented-reality helmet for soldiers, with an integrated voice-assistant and navigation system that also shows the positions of fellow soldiers. It will be ready to sell within the next two years, and was built by combining Thales know-how with technology from startups that wasn’t necessarily geared towards the military to begin with.
The company teamed up with SIMSOFT INDUSTRY, a French upstart based near Toulouse which makes voice assistants, usually for industrial applications. It also used gesture recognition software by Clay AIR, a Paris-based startup with research labs near Bordeaux and offices in California, which is also marketing its hand-tracking technology for use in cars and gaming virtual-reality headsets.
