Such investment is attracting interest from European aerospace companies that are increasingly eager to break into the market via acquisitions. This week, Airbus has announced the acquisition of Metron Aviation – a supplier of air traffic flow management solutions and ATM research - while Saab Group has closed the acquisition of Sensis – a supplier of a broad range of surveillance solutions covering commercial and military air traffic control, air defence, airline and airport operations management, and data integration and distribution.
