Momentum Aviation Group acquires BOSH Global Services

The Momentum Aviation Group (MAG) has acquired privately-held BOSH Global Services, a world leader in C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) services and solutions related to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The two companies will integrate their C4ISR services businesses, resulting in an expansion of both companies' capabilities to provide and enable real time situational awareness worldwide using fixed wing, rotary wing, and unmanned aircraft.

MAG is headquartered in Woodbridge, Va., and BOSH is headquartered in Newport News, Va. Together, MAG and BOSH will possess the industry's most comprehensive "tip to tail" services offering for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), able to support federal, international, and commercial customers worldwide with ISR training, operations, and sustainment support. Michael Archuleta will remain president of BOSH, and become a shareholder of MAG, and report to Joe Fluet, MAG chairman and CEO.

"By combining BOSH's unmanned capabilities with MAG's manned capabilities, we will create a truly unique, full-scope provider of real time situational awareness for our customers, anywhere and anytime," said Fluet.

BOSH provides UAS services in small, medium, and large unmanned aerial vehicles. BOSH's nearly 200 employees currently support customers on three continents and include some of the most technically complex UAS operations in the world. Key past and current BOSH projects and achievements include building the UAS training programs for the United States Air Force Academy, operating U.S. Air Force Remotely Piloted Aircraft Squadron Operations Centers, and solving complex communications architecture issues for U.S. Special Operations forces.

The combined MAG and BOSH team has already secured new business together. MAG will deploy BOSH's SuperSwiper UAS to Europe as part of a C4ISR contract for an intergovernmental organization.

Key past and current MAG projects and achievements include interdicting and disrupting over $500 million of illegal narcotics in 14 months, deploying the first unmanned ISR expeditionary detachment in support of the United Nations, operating an aviation learning center for the Afghan Special Mission Wing, and  providing manned ISR in South America, Africa, and Asia.
