WP: Lockheed building up UAV capabilities of District-based unit

By Marjorie Censer

The MST unit picked up its most recent acquisition late this month, with the purchase of virtually all of the assets of CDL Systems, which has offices in Calgary and Huntsville, Ala.

CDL, which produces open, off-the-shelf software used in unmanned aerial vehicles, will be combined with previous buys Chandler/May and Procerus Technologies, Lockheed said in its announcement.

Procerus, which Lockheed picked up in January, specializes in auto­pilot and other avionics for micro unmanned aerial systems. The Orem, Utah-based company is known for technologies that add surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities to small UAVs.

In November, Lockheed’s MST unit announced its acquisition of Chandler/May, which has facilities in Huntsville and San Luis Obispo, Calif. and specializes in ground control stations for unmanned systems.
