Boeing establishes new C4ISR business division
The Boeing Company today announced it has created a new division to better align the company's Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities. The new Electronic & Mission Systems (E&MS) division will operate within the Network and Space Systems business unit and include Argon ST, Digital Receiver Technology (DRT) and Boeing's tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) programs.
"The synergy created by bringing Argon and DRT together with our tactical ISR programs will enable us to better serve our customers with integrated solutions and a strong team of experts," said Roger Krone, president of Network and Space Systems. "This new division enhances the depth of our C4ISR capabilities as we strive to offer our customers the best-value C4ISR solutions they need now and in the future."
The E&MS portfolio will include Ship's Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE) Increment F systems, serving the US Navy; the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance System (EMARSS), serving the US Army; and many of Argon's legacy Navy and Marine Corps programs. E&MS will focus on developing and implementing technically advanced, network-enabled C4ISR solutions, and also will serve as the primary division for solutions geared toward Navy customers.
E&MS will be led by Terry Collins, who previously served as vice president and general manager of Argon ST. Leadership of Argon ST will transfer to Vice President Joe Carlin, former head of Argon ST Information Dominance. DRT will continue to be led by Acie Vickers, its president and co-founder. Kerry Rowe, former Argon ST vice president of Operations, will lead Boeing ISR and Force Protection within E&MS.
Boeing acquired Argon ST in August 2010 and DRT in December 2008.
