We look forward to exchanging ideas with BAE Systems and learning from each other, to foster a culture of innovation that will further enhance our technologies and product offerings.
“This acquisition augments BAE Systems’ portfolio in airborne communications with broad-spectrum multi-band multi-channel radios that feature robust anti-jamming and encryption capabilities.
“The business also brings complementary waveform expertise to the electronic systems command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems business.”
