Esterline Wins Deal to Equip 1,100 Thales Hawkei Vehicles in Australia

Esterline Corporation has just signed a contract with Thales Australia on the 12th of September. Under the agreement, Esterline will supply Thales with rugged displays and servers to be installed in the Hawkei Protected Mobility vehicles. The contract has been awarded following an international tender on account of Esterline’s market leadership, unique system architecture and, most importantly, successful trials.

Thales chose Esterline’s rugged networked products for the vehicles after a rigorous selection process, which included extensive trials and technical information exchange sessions with the Esterline team.

“For Esterline, this deal confirms that we have the solutions in place to equip new-generation protected vehicles that are built around the Generic Vehicle Architecture,” said Steven Luys, Vice President, Rugged and ATC, Esterline Advanced Displays. He added: “We are delighted to deliver the displays and servers to create common situational awareness in this much-applauded, next-generation vehicle.”
