Exelis acquires Germany-based aviation company

Exelis has acquired the air traffic flow management business of Bremen, Germany-based Barco NV in a move that boosts Exelis’ aviation solutions and its international stake.

Barco Orthogon was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Barco NV. It designs, develops and deploys queue management and traffic optimization applications that allow airport operators, ANSPs and airlines to collaborate and manage capacity constraints on the airport surface and in the air, the company said in a release.

Orthogon will become part of Exelis’ Information Systems division.

 “With our global airport presence and Orthogon’s queue management applications we see opportunities to deliver solutions to our customers that will lower costs and increase capacity and efficiency of their operations,” said Pam Drew, Exelis president of the Exelis Information Systems division.
