Boe­ing ac­quires CPU Tech’s mi­cro­pro­ces­sor busi­ness


Boe­ing con­tin­ued to ad­dress its global cus­tomers’ en­dur­ing need to pro­tect warfight­ers from in­for­ma­tion-as­sur­ance at­tacks by ac­quir­ing CPU Tech­nol­ogy Inc.’s Acalis busi­ness. Acalis mi­cro­pro­ces­sors con­tain unique hard­ware and soft­ware that can guard mis­sion-crit­i­cal on­board sys­tems in Boe­ing plat­forms.

“Acalis pro­vides se­cu­rity-on-a-chip that can help de­fend the manned and un­manned air­craft we build at Boe­ing to­day and in the fu­ture for cus­tomers around the world,” said Chris Chad­wick, Pres­i­dent of Boe­ing Mil­i­tary Air­craft. “With th­ese pro­ces­sors on­board, warfight­ers can com­plete their mis­sions and not be side­lined by mal­ware, cloning and other cy­ber threats against the air­craft’s sys­tems.”

Acalis will be in­te­grated into Boe­ing Mil­i­tary Air­craft’s Global Strike di­vi­sion. The Acalis busi­ness em­ploys ap­prox­i­mately 40 peo­ple and is based in Pleasan­ton, Cal­i­for­nia.
