Table 5B.1 presents the major arms industry acquisitions completed by companies based in OECD countries. Large arms producers drove the merger and acquisition activity in the United States and Western Europe. Some acquired smaller companies that are expected to fill gaps in product lines or to allow the new owner to develop specific capabilities; other companies made acquisitions that give them access to growing markets; and some sales were made in order to divest non-core assets. These three trends are illustrated by Harris’s acquisition of Global Connectivity Services to develop its capabilities for satellite communication services in remote and harsh environments; Boeing’s acquisition of Argon ST, a service provider operating in the rising cybersecurity and intelligence markets; and Honeywell’s sale of its civil automotive on-board sensor business to the Netherlands-based firm Sensata Technologies.1
