Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions (CAES) announced the sale of its Cobham RAD Inc. radiation testing business in Colorado Springs, Colo. to Radiation Test Solutions, Inc. (RTS). 

“During our strategic planning process, we determined that we were not the optimal owners of Cobham RAD,” said Shawn Black, CEO at CAES. “This sale aligns with our strategic intent to focus on our core competencies in design and manufacture of RF, microwave and mmWave 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."

“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,” said Malcolm Thomson, president of RTS. “By bringing both companies together under one roof, RTS can ensure our ability to support the growing needs of the commercial space industry.” 

Cobham RAD is a premiere provider of military standard radiation effects test services, heavy ion single event effects testing, device preparation services prior to test, device screening and element evaluation and quick turn prototype integrated circuit assembly.
