BAE Systems has acquired Raytheon’s Airborne Tactical Radios business.
After reaching a definitive agreement in January, BAE Systems say has now completed the acquisition of Raytheon Technologies Corporation’s Airborne Tactical Radios business.
“The Airborne Radios business and its people are a great fit for BAE Systems. Together, we are excited about delivering game-changing electronic mission and control solutions to our collective customer base,” said Dave Logan, vice president and general manager of C4ISR Systems at BAE Systems.
“We are proud to have this unique combination of people, products, and technologies as part of our BAE Systems family.”
BAE say that this acquisition augments their 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. Most importantly, this represents a strong step for BAE Systems in its sustained commitment to the national security and defense of the U.S. and its allies, and in its efforts to fulfill its mission to protect those who protect us.”
