Elbit Systems UK consolidates market position

10 January 2022

London, 10th January 2022 – Elbit Systems UK today announced that it has sold Ferranti Technologies’ Power and Control business to TT Electronics plc. This confirms Elbit Systems UK’s strategy of focussing on the growth of its core business through continued investment, and consolidating its market position as a leading provider of advanced technology-enabled solutions and services.

These changes will allow the company to focus its extensive knowledge and skills on developing new and innovative technology solutions and growing the company’s footprint in specific areas, to meet the future capability requirements of the UK Armed Forces.

The newly designated Elbit Systems UK Aerospace and Simulation Business Unit, has become a leader in providing cutting-edge technology solutions to the UK Ministry of Defence, ranging from advanced simulation capabilities for the Army such as the Joint Fires Synthetic Trainer (JFST) and Interim Combined Arms Virtual Simulation (Deployable) (ICAVS (D)), as well as being the Synthetic Integrator for the Fisher Consortium to the Royal Navy through the Selborne Programme. 

Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK said:

We are pleased to confirm continued successful progress in implementing Elbit Systems UK's strategy. Elbit Systems UK already has an impressive footprint across the UK, providing a range of advanced systems for the UK Ministry of Defence. This re-organisation will allow us to guarantee and invest in the knowledge, skills and technical expertise required to support the British Armed Forces now, and in the future.
