FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Boeing has created a U.S. division to align its command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

The new division -- the Electronic and Mission Systems division -- will operate within the Network and Space Systems business unit and include Argon ST, Digital Receiver Technology and Boeing's tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance programs.

"The synergy created by bringing Argon and DRT together with our tactical ISR programs will enable us to better serve our customers with integrated solutions and a strong team of experts," said Roger Krone, president of Network and Space Systems.

"This new division enhances the depth of our C4ISR capabilities as we strive to offer our customers the best-value C4ISR solutions they need now and in the future."

The E&MS portfolio will include Ship's Signal Exploitation Equipment Increment F systems, serving the U.S. Navy; the Enhanced Medium Altitude Reconnaissance Surveillance System, serving the U.S. Army; and many of Argon's legacy Navy and Marine Corps programs.

E&MS will focus on developing and implementing technically advanced, network-enabled C4ISR solutions, and also will serve as the primary division for solutions geared toward Navy customers.

Boeing acquired Argon ST in August 2010 and DRT in December 2008.
