Boeing Integrated Defense Systems Re-Organizes
A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is a $30.5 billion business, and one of the world’s largest space and defense businesses. Over the next few weeks, its operations will be consolidated into three business profit and loss centers organized around capabilities. There will also be an Advanced Defense and Security Systems unit headed by George Muellner. It will include all advanced programs, but will continue to be linked with Boeing’s Phantom Works business unit.
IDS’ reorganization structure is as follows:
- Precision Engagement and Mobility Systems, which includes Global Strike, Mobility, Airborne ASW and ISR, and Rotorcraft for all military services. John Lockard is named President, and he will be based in Northern Virginia near Washington, DC.
- Networks and Space Systems includes Combat Systems, Space and Expendable Launches, Missile Defense Systems, C3 Networks, Space and Intelligence Systems and Space Exploration. Roger Krone is named President, and he will be based in Northern Virginia near Washington, DC.
- Support Systems, which includes Maintenance Modification and Upgrades, Material Management, Training Systems, International Business Operations, and Advanced Logistics Systems. Pat Finneran is named President, and he will be based in St. Louis, MO.
