Thales is in talks with France-based Egis Avia over the acquisition of its air traffic management (ATM) IT solutions business.
The relevant packages include the Maestro arrival and departure flight sequencing systems, Atalis aeronautical information systems, datalink servers, and Scansim simulators.
The Egis Avia teams impacted by the acquisition are based at the company's Toulouse and Issy-les-Moulineaux facilities.
Thales says it aims to strengthen its expertise in ATM solutions, including the synchronisation and optimisation of traffic during the approach, arrival and departure phases.
Thales will continue to support and maintain Egis Avia's clients in the ATM IT solutions business in the long-term.
Egis Avia would concentrate on its consultancy and engineering activities within the ATM and air operations market after completion of the acquisition.
