ITT Exelis, EADS North America and Cassidian join forces in electronic warfare
ITT Exelis, EADS North America and Cassidian, the defense and security division of EADS, will work together to provide enhanced electronic warfare solutions, particularly in the area of aircraft survivability equipment. In a memorandum of understanding, the three companies agreed to combine their respective capabilities for targeted global opportunities. One of their first joint projects is expected to be a missile approach warning solution for the US Air National Guard.
“This agreement will help our companies, each with complementary electronic warfare systems, grow in new markets,” said Rich Sorelle, Acting President of the Exelis Electronic Systems division. “Cassidian will bring its distinctive products to the US with partners that understand the American defence market, and Exelis will benefit from Cassidian’s knowledge of European defence platforms, as well as its marketing reach in Europe, Asia and Africa.”
