The acquisition is part of BAE Systems’ strategy to develop breakthrough technologies, with continued investment in research and development, working with customers, industry partners, SMEs and academia, and pursuing bolt-on acquisitions where they complement existing capabilities and provide an opportunity to accelerate the company’s position in key areas.
PPM’s technical excellence, developed over 25 years, has earned it a reputation for quality and reliability in the Satellite and Broadcast markets by providing the innovative ViaLite RF and fibre optic products used in the ground based communications segment. Amongst its wide range of capabilities, PPM provides pit lane and car telemetry in Formula 1, specialist measurement equipment for aircraft clearance, and high performance electronic sub-systems for power trains on electric vehicle and aerospace platforms.
PPM has a strong track record of working within the defence and communications sector, cyber security and commercial test and research markets in both the UK and USA and it strongly complements BAE Systems’ digital and data capabilities. Together the companies have a shared goal to expand the use of RF systems and power electronics technologies across a range of applications for military and commercial customers.
Ian Muldowney, Chief Operating Officer, Air Sector commented “Pulse Power and Measurement and BAE Systems are an excellent fit; both companies have superb technology credentials, thrive on innovation and work closely with military and government customers to deliver pioneering technology-based solutions. The acquisition further advances our strategic objective to develop and grow our capabilities in secure systems and information exploitation.”
Martin Ryan, Managing Director, Pulse Power and Measurement said “We are excited about joining BAE Systems and bringing together our complementary capabilities which will give our innovative team of specialists and engineers access to world-class expertise and ensure our successful business continues to grow.”
