BAE SYSTEMS is a truly global systems, defence and aerospace company with international reach as a prime contractor and systems integrator in the air, land, sea and space defence market sectors. Our world-class capabilities combine key in-depth skills in naval platforms, military aircraft, electronics, systems integration and other technologies. This enables us to offer outstanding complementary capability to international customers across the main defence sectors, as well as in the civil aircraft market. We also leverage operating performance through the synergies and opportunities available to our worldwide group through the cross-transfer of best practice across all our operations.
The commercial practices we employ in the civil aviation marketplace naturally feed through to our dealings in the ever-changing defence sector; and conversely, many of the technology breakthroughs we achieve in military programmes enable us to develop the right solutions for our wide customer base.
