Thales laboratory has a strong expertise in vision algorithms and provides perception solutions for autonomous systems. Thales will be involved mainly in WP2 and WP3 in the development of building blocks concerning autonomous navigation for the AURORA project. In particular their laboratory will address the problematics of absolute localization using visual perceptions in GPS denied area. Thales will participate to the tasks related to path planning and more specifically our contribution will concerns the development of a perception tool devoted to identify a safe landing site in urban environments in order to allow drone emergency landing path planning.

Thales Group is one of the world’s leading providers of mission-critical systems for security, defense, land transport and aerospace. With over 80 000 employees in 68 countries, Thales annual revenue is around €19 billion with over of €1 billion of self-funded R&D in 2018 and 25000 researchers working on cutting-edge technologies. Leveraging a global presence and spanning the entire value chain, from prime contracting to equipment, Thales plays a pivotal role in making the world a safer place.


Thales SIX GTS is a subsidiary of the Thales Groups. As part of Thales SIX GTS’ research facility at the École Polytechnique campus in Palaiseau, near Paris, the Secure Communications and Information Systems Global Business Unit has created ThereSIS, a research laboratory dedicated to developing security technologies to protect people, property and critical information systems. ThereSIS aims to consolidate and expand this capacity to manage complex electronic systems used by millions of citizens.


ThereSIS – VAR innovation lab focusses on vision and sensing, network security and cyber protection, adaptive systems and bio-inspired simulation. The vision and sensing domain develops technologies dealing with video analytics, perception and robotics and is specialized in critical infrastructures monitoring and transportation.
