BAE Systems has announced the acquisition of UK-based data consultancy and digital services firm Techmodal.

The deal is expected to strengthen the company’s technology and data portfolio.

Techmodal is involved in many long-term contracts with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to aid the army, Strategic Command, and Royal Navy.

Last year, the MOD introduced the Defence Digital initiative to boost the digital capabilities and this deal will help BAE Systems to support the armed forces for this initiative.

BAE Systems will also be able to support other customers across the globe.

The capabilities of Techmodal are said to complement the digital and data services that are provided by BAE Systems to the Royal Navy, which aims to transform into a complete ‘digital navy’ by 2025.

The services provided by BAE Systems include the Data Integration Platform (DIP), a system that offers the capability to view, manage and exploit data from different systems on the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers.

BAE Systems Maritime Services business managing director David Mitchard said: “We are delighted to welcome the Techmodal team to BAE Systems. This deal will open up many new opportunities for both businesses and for our colleagues.

“Techmodal’s data expertise is highly complementary to our own digital capabilities and aligns well with our customers’ digital needs and ambitions.

“This acquisition allows us to work together to provide further support to the UK’s armed forces’ digital transformation, as well as bringing the benefits of leading data-driven decision-making to all of our customers.”

Techmodal is now a wholly owned subsidiary of BAE Systems.

BAE Systems won a $103.5m contract from the US Navy to maintain and upgrade the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88).
