Thales to showcase innovative capabilities at IAVC 2024

Thales’ Land team will be showing their latest innovations at the International Armoured Vehicles Conference (IAVC) taking place later this month at London’s Twickenham Stadium, 22nd-25th January.

IAVC 2024 will host 1,000 delegates from over 40 nations as attendees from across military, government and industry.
The event's focus on the full armoured vehicles ecosystem brings together major vehicle OEMs and the supporting supply chain, both working in tandem to drive the development, delivery and deployment of innovative, integrated capabilities that will make today’s armoured vehicles future-proof and battle-ready.

Thales will be showcasing two main capabilities at IAVC 2024:

Hawkei
Designed and developed in Bendigo, Australia, Thales is bringing its Hawkei vehicle (above) to the UK at IAVC 2024. It’s a light, versatile and C41 integrated vehicle, offering first-of-its-kind protection, mobility and payload alongside advanced mission system integration, making it adaptable and scalable to operational requirements.

Described as a ‘force multiplier’ for the Australian Defence Force, the 1000th Hawkei was recently lifted off the production line in Thales’ vehicle manufacturing facility in Bendigo, Victoria.

Panoramic Above Armour Gimbal (PAAG)
Thales’ cutting-edge vehicle optronics product, PAAG (right) features state-of-the-art sensors, including: high-resolution daylight colour cameras, a cooled thermal imager, SWIR sensor, laser rangefinder, laser pointer and a laser target designator.

PAAG enables long-range threat detection, identification and weapon aiming on the move, as well as fire support capabilities – day and night and in all weather conditions. Thales sights can also come with DigitalCrew smart processing – providing image enhancement, video and image combination and automated threat detection and tracking to significantly reduce cognitive burden.

Also at the show, Thales will be displaying its indirect fire support system and technology, its ruggedised inertial system for geo-positioning and target acquisition, and its mounted software defined radio.

As the world’s premier meeting ground for the armoured vehicles community, IAVC 2024 is a perfect opportunity for attendees to investigate, demonstrate and discuss innovative capabilities like Hawkei and PAAG.

Jonathan Welch, Capture Leader at Thales said: “Everyone working in this space should have IAVC 2024 marked in their diary. IAVC 2024 presents us with a great opportunity to remain close to the fast moving defence market, subsequently increasing the relevance of our value proposition to customers seeking to gain decision advantage on the battlefield.”
