ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- A new information solutions business has been formed by Boeing to more efficiently offer military-grade, software-based products.

Information Solutions, a division of Network & Space Systems, part of the Boeing Defense Space & Security unit, combines teams with similar operating cultures and software-development expertise from across BDS, including the cybersecurity and intelligence capabilities of Network & Space Systems' Intelligence & Security Systems division, and the logistics command-and-control business Tapestry Solutions and international LogC2 work both from Boeing Global Services & Support.

The products are aimed at the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Intelligence Community, federal and international governments and Fortune 1,000 customers.

"We have built significant cyber, logistics and information services capabilities across Boeing through internal research and development as well as by targeted acquisitions," said Roger Krone, president of Network & Space Systems. "By bringing those resources together into one customer-focused organization, we are not only better aligned as a company, but also better able to serve our customers."
