Thales to Buy Moog’s Navigation Tech Business

Thales Group has agreed to acquire a Moog business unit that manufactures radio beacons, antennas and other ground-based navigational aids intended for military and civilian use.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed and Thales said Tuesday it aims to offer a comprehensive navigation technology product and maintenance service through the acquisition.
