Boeing’s global strike division, within the military aircraft business, will absorb the 40-staff unit that is based in Pleasanton, Calif.

“Acalis provides security-on-a-chip that can help defend the manned and unmanned aircraft we build at Boeing today and in the future for customers around the world, ” said Chris Chadwick, president of Boeing’s military aircraft business.

“With these processors onboard, war fighters can complete their missions and not be sidelined by malware, cloning and other cyberthreats against the aircraft’s systems, ” he added.
