Thales   Thomson-CSF
Under construction

Thales, formerly known as Thomson-CSF, is a large multinational organisation that specializes in technology for aerospace, defence, transportation and (data) security. Much of the encryption technology was acquired through take-overs of companies like Alcatel in Norway, who in turn inherited it from STK (Norway), Philips Usfa in The Netherlands and Racal in the UK. The range of encryption devices from STK and Alcatel was continued and further enhanced by Thales Norway. 1
