Thales Wraps Up Helmet Mounted Business Buy

ThalesLogoThales Group has completed its acquisition of a helmet mounted display and motion tracking business from Gentex Corp. for an undisclosed amount.

Effective Dec. 28, 2012, the new company is operating as a Thales subsidiary under the new name Thales Visionix, Thales said Thursday.

The subsidiary will retain its current management team and will also operate under a proxy agreement with the U.S. Defense Department.

The France-based defense and electronics conglomerate will also continue to develop the Intersense motion tracking systems business within Thales Visionix.
