Thales Lands Valuable Communications Deal with French Army

Thales has claimed a €240M (approx. $330M) contract from the French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) to extend the French Army’s RITA (Réseau Intégré de Transmissions Automatiques or Automated Integrated Communications Network).

As part of this contract, named RITA N4, Thales will provide the Army with IP communications systems for battalion Command Posts.

“We are proud that the Army and DGA have once again put their trust in us. This RITA N4 system will assist the Army in their increasingly complex missions”, explained Jean-Michel Lagarde, Thales Vice President, in charge of Network & Infrastructure Systems. “This marks the first step towards an all-IP network, which is in keeping with the DGA’s ultimate ambition to equip all the armed forces with the same system, at all different levels of command.”
