Cobham Acquires Thrane & Thrane, Now Cobham SATCOM
Cobham is now Cobham Satcom (Booth No. 1773), an amalgam of Cobham and the Danish satcom company Thrane & Thrane, which it acquired earlier this year, the company said in an announcement at NBAA’12. “As the demand for airborne, land-mobile and maritime satellite communications continues to increase we are working hard to make it easier for customers to buy from us a wider range of satcom equipment and integrated solutions,” said Richard Tyson, president of the Cobham Aerospace and Security division that includes the new company. Rebranding of Thrane & Thrane is already in progress, and should be complete in 2013. Thrane & Thrane’s airborne products will be renamed Aviation and land-mobile products renamed Explorer.
