About the team

With 80.000 talents working in 68 countries, we are one of the biggest high-tech employers in the field of safety and security. In the Netherlands, where 2000 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ). Together with an extensive ecosystem of knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cyber security solutions, transportation systems, communication equipment for land forces, cryogenic cooling solutions and research & development for radar tech (in collaboration with TU Delft).

F126 is the first major shipbuilding project of the German Navy since 20 years and at the same time its largest ship building program ever. Based on the increasing operational needs, the German Navy plans to build four new multi role combat ships. In order to respond in a flexible way to national and NATO obligations of different types, the modularity of the vessel became a key requirement for the design.

The Thales part of the project is by volume the biggest project in the history of the Thales Netherlands and Thales Germany Naval organizations. To realize this, we are expanding and strengthening our solution engineering capacity.
