Radiation Test Solutions acquires Cobham RAD, Inc. to expand it’s testing and analysis support to the growing commercial space industry.
Radiation Test Solutions, Inc. (RTS) reached an agreement with Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions (CAES) to purchase Cobham RAD Inc. (Cobham RAD). Cobham RAD is a premier provider of military standard (MIL-STD) radiation effects test services, heavy-ion single event effects (SEE) testing, device preparation service before test, device screening and element evaluation, and quick turn prototype integrated circuit (IC) assembly.
Over the last 5 years, RTS has engaged in a strategic engineering partnership with Cobham RAD. RTS’ acquisition of Cobham RAD greatly increases its ability to support the needs of aerospace customers while providing additional services and support to the customers of Cobham RAD. RTS has retained the staff of Cobham RAD and will continue to operate out of the former 35,000 sq./ft. Cobham RAD facility, located at 5030 Centennial Blvd. Colorado Springs.
“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,” said Shawn Black, CEO of Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions.
Malcolm Thomson, President of RTS states “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. By bringing both companies together under one roof, RTS can ensure our ability to support the growing needs of the commercial space industry.”
