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.
