Cobham RAD sold to Radiation Test Solutions
Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions says that it has sold its Cobham RAD radiation testing business in Colorado Springs, to Radiation Test Solutions, Inc. (RTS).
RTS is 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,” says Shawn Black, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions, in a press release. “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,” Shawn Black continues. “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,” adds 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.
