ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 10, 2010 — Defense contractor BAE Systems Inc. recently announced it will acquire Oasys Technology, a privately owned company that manufactures electro-optical systems and subassemblies for aerospace, defense, industrial and commercial markets.
The proposed acquisition is conditional upon receiving certain US regulatory approvals, and is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2010.
