BAE Systems today announced the creation of a new world-class systems integration and C4ISR business, BAE Systems Integrated System Technologies (Insyte), through bringing together AMS UK and BAE Systems C4ISR Networked Systems and Solutions businesses.

The new company operates in the areas of joint, naval, land and air systems and Homeland Security.
According to Clive Richardson Managing Director, "BAE Systems has created a business unit of great strategic significance. We have the right people, the right technologies and systems capability to deliver complex solutions for our customers in mission-critical applications. I am proud to be leading the business at its birth".
