BAE Systems acquires Raytheon’s Airborne Tactical Radios Division

British defense company BAE Systems completed acquisition of Raytheon Technologies Corporation’s Airborne Tactical Radios (Airborne Radios) business on Monday.

In January, BAE Systems had said it entered into a definitive Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire Collins Aerospace’s Military GPS business for $1.925 billion and Raytheon’s Airborne Tactical Radios (ATR) business for $275 million.

“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,” the company said in a statement.

The Airborne Radios business designs, manufactures, and supplies mission-critical communication systems to the US Department of Defense, allied governments, and large defense aircraft manufacturers. The business provides communications solutions installed on a broad range of military airborne platforms.
