Airbus sets up maritime surveillance unit
- Equipment & technology
European aeronautical major Airbus has re-organized its subsidiary SIGNALIS into the Maritime Surveillance Centre of Competences within the Airbus Defence and Space division.
SIGNALIS was previously integrated into the Airbus CIS (Communications, Intelligence and Security) business and has been part of the new maritime surveillance division since January 3, 2018.
The company decided to integrate the subsidiary in line with its ‘one brand’ strategy to secure the future of the business.
The move is also a reflection of the company’s growing interest in the maritime surveillance sector. Airbus further said it is bringing its various maritime players together and linking its services to create a new digital offering that will provide a powerful competitive differentiator.
“Today, with the reorganisation, we have brought all the maritime surveillance experts in the security solutions domain together in order to structure and strengthen Airbus Defence and Space´s position as a leading maritime company,” Evert Dudok, head of CIS, said. “Airbus Defence and Space has the ability to become one of the leaders in the maritime security market.”
