MAG acquires Bosh Global Services
The Momentum Aviation Group (MAG) has acquired Bosh Global Services, with the two companies integrating their C4ISR services businesses to target the fixed wing, rotary wing, and UAS real time situational awareness markets.
The companies will provide comprehensive intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) services for government customers, including ISR training, operations, and sustainment support.
BOSH provides UAS services across small, medium, and large unmanned aerial vehicle platforms. The company has previously conducted work including building UAS training programmes for the US Air Force Academy, and operating US Air Force Remotely Piloted Aircraft Squadron Operations Centers.
The newly formed team has already secured a new C4ISR contract under which Bosh's SuperSwiper UAS will be deployed by MAG to Europe for an undisclosed intergovernmental organisation.
Joe Fluet, chairman and CEO, MAG, said: ‘Bosh enjoys a global reputation for excellence in UAS services and we expect this acquisition to be a transformative event for MAG and Bosh. By combining Bosh's unmanned capabilities with MAG's manned capabilities, we will create a truly unique, full-scope provider of real time situational awareness for our customers, anywhere and anytime.
‘With Bosh in place, MAG will be uniquely positioned to deliver technical solutions unlike any other company in our space. We could not be more excited that Bosh will be joining the MAG family of companies.’
