BAE Systems recently announced that it has completed its acquisition of Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc., a Tucson, Ariz.-based producer of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and advanced materials, following receipt of regulatory approval. Advanced Ceramics Research produces three UAS platforms and provides related UAS support capabilities to U.S. armed forces and civil government agencies. It also provides ceramic and other materials for both military and commercial aerospace applications.

“The acquisition of Advanced Ceramics Research allows us to further advance our global unmanned aircraft systems strategy in the United States,” said Mike Heffron, president of BAE Systems Electronics, Intelligence & Support. “Their experience and expertise in small/mini and tactical UAS complements the UAS platforms being developed by BAE Systems in the United Kingdom and other home markets.”
