MAG acquires UAS situational awareness specialist BOSH

By Luke Geiver | August 20, 2015

Through its acquisition of unmanned aircraft systems sensor provider BOSH Global Services, Virginia-based Momentum Aviation Group (MAG) believes it now has the aviation industry’s most comprehensive tip-to-tail service offering. BOSH provides UAS services, including those focused on command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR). The company currently has 200 employees working on three continents and some of the most technically complex UAS operations in the world, according to MAG.

The new company will continue to operate under the MAG logo. The expansion gives it the ability to provide situational awareness offerings to fixed wing, rotary wing and unmanned aircrafts.

“BOSH enjoys a global reputation for excellence in UAS services and we expect this acquisition to be a transformative event for MAG and BOSH,” said Joe Fluet, CEO for MAG.

According to the company, the new acquisition has already yielded positive results and created new business. Through an intergovernmental organization in Europe, MAG will deploy BOSH’s SuperSwiper UAS, a fixed wing platform.

BOSH has helped train UAS pilots for the U.S. Air Force Academy, operated remotely piloted aircraft squadron operation centers and helped solve complex architecture issues for U.S. Special Operations forces.

MAG also has roughly 200 employees and works in situational awareness with manned vehicles. The company has worked with the United Nations, in South America, Africa and Asia. With its own UAS operations, MAG has sensed over 900,000 square miles using UAS through 2,520 hours of flight time performed over 132 missions. 

Details of the acquisition will be further explained at a conference call set for Monday, August 24.
