Lockheed Martin has purchased unmanned aerial systems and ground control station manufacturer and integrator Chandler/May for an undisclosed amount, Lockheed reported Nov. 13.
The Huntsville, Ala.-based Chandler/May has produced more than 2,200 unmanned aerial vehicles including the Desert Hawk UAV, and also has developed a fully integrated UAS, consisting of the Fury UAV, SharkFin Mission and Flight Control System and Tactical Air Vehicle Control System ground control station.
In addition, the company also has delivered a large number of integrated command and control shelters and portable ground control stations to the U.S. Army.
The newly acquired company will become part of Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Sensors business, Lockheed said.
