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.”
