Defence Turkey:As of 1 January 2014, the defence businesses of the EADS Group are consolidated into one division Airbus Defence and Space.  Could you please inform us about new structure?

Airbus Defence and Space is a division of the parent company Airbus Group – which comes from the renaming of the former EADS company. And it sits alongside two other Airbus Group divisions – Airbus, which is the commercial airliner business, and Airbus Helicopters which is the renamed Eurocopter. Then inside Airbus Defence and Space we are divided into four business lines for operational purposes, although we don’t use those names as brands. Those are: Military Aircraft, which is the former Airbus Military; Space, which is essentially the former Astrium; and then two that consist of the assets of the former Cassidian with some elements of Astrium called CIS – Communication, Intelligence & Security, and Electronics, which provides expertise to systems integrators both inside and outside Airbus Group.
