Thales completes acquisition of Moog navigation aids business

  • With the Moog navigation aids business, Thales extends its navigation aid offerings and accesses additional “man-portable” technology, further supporting customers’ contingency air operations and evolving mobility needs.
  • Moog employee expertise will expand Thales’ U.S.-based engineering, industrial and technology capabilities.
  • Through this acquisition, Thales can offer its civil and military customers an even more advanced technology with varying solutions for their specific needs.

Thales has acquired the Moog ground-based navigation aids business located in Salt Lake City, Utah, enabling it to provide a more comprehensive navigation aid offering to its customers worldwide.

The acquisition was completed after Thales received the required regulatory approvals in October 2021.

Both Thales and Moog have recognized histories and deployments in the United States (U.S.) and around the world. A trusted partner of the aviation industry, Thales provides air traffic management solutions and navigation aids to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and airports worldwide. Similarly, Moog has demonstrated the quality, reliability and longevity of its navigation aids to the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps, and global ANSPs and military forces.

“Radio air navigation offers unmatched reliability and convenience for all aviation stakeholders from pilots to ANSPs,” said Kais Mnif, Managing Director, Navaids and Surveillance Business, Thales. “Additionally, the ways we design our navigation aids and bring them to the market have dramatically evolved with technological advances and creative delivery models. Our civil and military customers are discovering the value of investing in high performance, digital, compact, low consumption and low maintenance systems. Through the acquisition of Moog, we can offer them an even more advanced technology with varying solutions for their specific needs.”
