Click to Enlarge

NASHUA, N.H., 23 June 2011. Aerospace and defense giant BAE Systems (LSE:BA) is creating a new Electronic Systems Sector based in Nashua, N.H., to better serve its customers concerned with military electronic technology, homeland security, military information technology, and other government and civil applications, says Jeff Rose, director of government relations at the BAE Systems Electronic Solutions Sector in Nashua, N.H.

The new BAE Systems Electronic Systems Sector, which the company will stand up effective on 5 July 2011, will be a consolidation of the existing BAE Systems Electronic Solutions Sector in Nashua, N.H., and the BAE Systems Platform Solutions Sector in Johnson City, N.Y.

Tom Arseneault, now president of the company's Electronic Solutions Sector in Nashua, N.H., will head up the newly formed Electronic Systems Sector, Rose says, adding that no employee layoffs will occur as a result of the consolidation. The BAE Systems Electronic Systems Sector will have about 13,000 employees.

"Right now this represents a focus to better serve our customers in defense electronics and commercial electronics," Rose says. "It's a more comprehensive solution set that offers more direct, one-point-of-contact type of interaction with our customers."

Today the BAE Systems Electronic Solutions Sector focuses on technology involving sensing, processing, and responding to electronic and electro-optical signals, with an emphasis on RF apertures, transmitters, receivers, electro-optical and infrared sensors, infrared optics, and signal processing. The company's Platform Solutions Sector concentrates on commercial and military avionics, power management, and human-machine interfaces for fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and ground vehicles.
