Tuesday, August 06, 2019 | Comments

Communications & Power Industries (CPI) agreed to purchase SATCOM Technologies, the antenna systems business of General Dynamics Mission Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics.

The acquisition is expected to close before the end of 2019, subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

SATCOM Technologies designs, manufactures and installs satellite communications antenna systems used in commercial, defense and scientific applications, as well as provides related RF products and electronics, including feed components, amplifiers, converters, antenna control systems, and engineering and installation services. This business will complement CPI's existing portfolio of communications products for government, military and commercial applications.

"Satellite communications technology plays a vital role in modern communications, serving the seemingly insatiable thirst for more bandwidth and greater speeds," said Bob Fickett, CPI president and CEO. "Acquiring SATCOM Technologies enables us to provide CPI's customers with a wide range of complementary products, capabilities and resources to support this dynamic and growing market, making it an excellent fit for CPI. These capabilities and resources include extensive expertise in VSAT (very small aperture terminal), large and medium communications antennas, and very large, complex antenna systems. We look forward to welcoming the business's management and employees to the CPI family."
