EMCORE Corporation has completed the acquisition of the L3Harris Space and Navigation business for approximately $5 million in an all-cash transaction, subject to any net working capital adjustments.
The acquisition provides an immediate contribution of additional scale in this market and expands EMCORE’s inertial navigation product portfolio and addressable market with the addition of navigation and strategic grade gyro and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) products.
EMCORE acquired all outstanding assets and liabilities of the L3Harris Space and Navigation business, including all L3Harris intellectual property rights primarily used in the Space and Navigation business, a 110,000 square foot leased production facility in Budd Lake, NJ, and associated production equipment.
The transaction creates partnership opportunities to expand EMCORE’s business with L3Harris, adding EMCORE as a preferred supplier to L3Harris divisions for future business opportunities and resulting in entry into a Master Supply Agreement for the BoRG (Booster Rate Gyro) and TAIMU (Tri-Axial Inertial Measurement Unit) launch vehicle programs.
”We are extremely pleased to welcome Space and Navigation’s expert team, strong brand, inertial technology, and important program wins,” said Jeff Rittichier, President and CEO of EMCORE. “This acquisition allows us to provide customers with an expanded product suite across the tactical, navigation, and strategic grade segments of the market, including the growing launch vehicle and space satellite markets.”
