Boeing is eliminating its Boeing Satellite Systems (BSS) division, folding it into a new Satellite Development Center under Boeing’s Space and Intelligence Systems. Boeing has formed component-provision alliances with IBM and Alcatel Space for processors, routers, channelizers and steerable antennas as part of its policy of reducing in-house activity to focus on key competencies. The move will separate the struggling commercial satellite business from Boeing's growing government-satellite work. The company continues to believe that the U.S. government satellite market will grow from $7.5 billion in 2003 to about $17 billion in 2013.
