ITT Exelis completes $16.8 million deal for Australian company
Herndon-based ITT Exelis has completed its $16.8 million acquisition of C4i Pty. Ltd. (C4i) from the Longreach Group Ltd.
C4i, based in Melbourne, Australia, provides advanced communications software that supports mission-critical communications for a range of applications including air traffic management, defense, public safety, mining and homeland security.
Company officials said the acquisition does not materially impact Exelis financial results for the full-year of 2012 or the first quarter of 2013.
C4i’s Internet protocol (IP)-based voice control and switching capabilities provide communications connectivity for dispersed operations.
Exelis officials say this capability ensures that organizations can effectively communicate in real-time to achieve their missions through the internetworking of disparate communications systems.
C4i will become part of the Information Systems business of Exelis. In addition to Melbourne, C4i has locations in Perth, Australia; Singapore; and Reston.
ITT Exelis is a diversified aerospace, defense and information solutions company.
