Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions (CAES), is selling its Cobham RAD radiation testing business to Radiation Test Solutions (RTS), which specializes in the design, analysis, and testing of semiconductor devices and materials for satellite, aircraft, and ground applications. The deal was announced Tuesday and financial details were not disclosed. 

CAES CEO Shawn Black said that the company determined during its strategic planning process that it was not the “optimal” owners of the radiation testing business based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 

“This sale aligns with our strategic intent to focus on our core competencies in design and manufacture of Radio Frequency (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,” Black said. 

RTS President Malcolm Thomson said RTS is “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.”
