Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions (CAES), a leading provider of mission critical electronic solutions, announced the sale of its Cobham RAD Inc. (Cobham RAD) radiation testing business in Colorado Springs, CO to Radiation Test Solutions, Inc. (RTS), a specialist in the design, analysis, and testing of semiconductor devices and materials for satellite, aircraft, and ground applications.

“During our strategic planning process, we determined that we were not the optimal owners of Cobham RAD,” said Shawn Black, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions. “This sale aligns with our strategic intent to focus on our core competencies in design and manufacture of RF, microwave, and millimeter wave solutions; digital processing, and power solutions for space, electronic warfare, radar, and missile applications. We have had a good working relationship with RTS and have been impressed by their technical capabilities and strong support of our customers. We feel confident that RTS will continue to provide that same level of support as they move forward with the business,” he continued.

“We are excited to continue to expand our capability and grow the business to support the increasing demand for our space-based testing services and satellite analysis,” said Malcolm Thomson, President, Radiation Test Solutions. “By bringing both companies together under one roof, RTS can ensure our ability to support the growing needs of the commercial space industry,” he continued.

I-Connect007 Editor's Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

09/04/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
When compiling my Top Five, I tend to let the reader views guide my choices. Oh, sure, sometimes a news item is significant well beyond the reads it receives; that’s why this is an editor’s picks, not a strict Top Five. Still, readership habits inform my choices. That makes it even more interesting when a week demonstrates a theme so convenient as to seem contrived. Take this week, for example. In this week’s top five, four of the top five are news reports on mil-aero topics. You, dear readers, gobbled up the military and aerospace news this week. The outlier is, as we all would expect, a conference report from our very own Pete Starkey.
