On February 24, London-based BAE Systems announced that it has formed a new Digital Intelligence business, bringing together many world-class digital, data and cyber capabilities from across the company to deliver a greater digital advantage to its customers and partners.

The creation of the new business, comprising almost 5,000 people in 16 countries around the world, reflects a growing requirement from customers to gather, process and manage complex data. Digital Intelligence will deliver a greater range of digital capabilities alongside leading cyber, intelligence and security expertise to an extensive portfolio of government, defense and commercial customers around the globe. The business will focus on helping customers from across the Company to operate successfully, securely and efficiently in the digital world.

Digital Intelligence incorporates recent strategic acquisitions by BAE Systems, which further enhance the Company’s capabilities in digital, data analytics and space, positioning it to accelerate growth in an evolving market. Acquisitions include: In-Space Missions, a UK company which designs, builds and operates satellites and satellite systems; PPM, a developer and manufacturer of high-end electronics; and data consultancy and digital services company, Techmodal.

David Armstrong, group managing director of BAE Systems’ Digital Intelligence business said, “We have some of the very best digital capabilities in the market. By bringing them together into one business, we will bring a greater range of capabilities to our customers and capitalise on market opportunities. We will also be able to offer exciting career development opportunities to the most talented people operating in this sector.”

The business will specialize in securely collecting, connecting and understanding complex data, so that customers can make near-real time decisions in the most demanding multi domain environments.
