ST. LOUIS, Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Boeing is continuing to advance its defense logistics support portfolio with the acquisition of California company Miro Technologies, a Boeing supplier.
Miro was a privately held software company specializing in enterprise asset and supply chain management; maintenance, repair and overhaul services; and performance-based logistics management. It will become part of Boeing's Global Services and Support business within Boeing Defense, Space and Security.
"Boeing's services and logistics business has grown significantly in recent years and Miro has been a trusted technology partner during that time," said Tony Parasida, Boeing president of GS&S.
"Bringing Miro into Boeing will provide us with industry-leading MRO and PBL supply chain software capabilities to help our customers plan and execute missions across the ground, air, sea and space domains."
Specifically, the acquisition expands GS&S product offerings for linking and fusing data from existing systems to improve mission readiness and to reduce sustainment costs.
Miro's premier product is GOLDesp, a fully deployable software solution designed for aftermarket logistics support; maintenance, supply and repair operations and PBL program management. Boeing PBL programs using GOLDesp include support for the C-17 Globemaster III and the AH-64D Apache Longbow.
