Thales completes CASIA construction

Thales Australia has completed construction of the Centre for Advanced Studies in ATM (CASIA), a new Air Traffic Management research and development centre in Melbourne, Australia.
CASIA has been made possible by significant financial support from the Victorian Government, which has played an active role in helping Thales build its Australian ATM business over many years.

Chris Jenkins, Thales Australias CEO, said CASIA represented the evolution of a hi-tech business that had delivered significant export successes.

"From small beginnings, we have expanded to become a global powerhouse that has delivered an advanced ATM system to Australia, and secured exports to over 50 countries around the world.

"This success demonstrates the benefits of long term investment, a commitment to building skills, and ongoing excellence in research and development.

"CASIA is the next chapter in this story, and we are very grateful to the Victorian Government for their close cooperation and support."

Located within the companys existing Melbourne premises, CASIA will pioneer innovative solutions to make air travel safer, more efficient and greener, and deliver numerous benefits to local and international Air Navigation Service Providers and militaries.

Thaless customers, partners and suppliers, plus other ATM stakeholders such as airlines, airports and the military, will also be able to make use of CASIA, along with Victorian universities and other educational institutions.
