Argon ST is a systems engineering and development company headquartered in Fairfax, VA providing C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) solutions to a wide range of customers. Argon ST's efforts include developing systems for signal intercept and identification, airborne imaging systems, threat warning systems, electronic intelligence, active electronic warfare systems, communications reconnaissance systems, torpedo countermeasures systems, imaging systems, communication systems, wireless networks and navigation systems. Argon ST systems support a full range of military and strategic units including surface and sub-surface, airborne, and land-based platforms serving defense, homeland security, and international customer needs. Argon ST announced on June 30, 2010 that it will be acquired by the Boeing Company for approximately $775 million and integrated into the aerospace firm as an independent subsidiary under Boeing Defense, Space & Security. This acquisition was completed on August 5, 2010.
Argon ST was created with the merger of SenSyTech, Inc. and Argon Engineering Associates on September 29, 2004. In August 2006, Argon ST acquired Innovative Research, Ideas & Services Corporation (IRIS), the authors of the sensor fusion software Transducer Markup Language (TML). Effective July 3, 2006, Argon ST completed the acquisition of San Diego Research Center Incorporated (SDRC). The acquisition helped to achieve the corporate goal of being able to provide an end-to-end sensor system. Specifically, SDRC’s wireless communication technologies address the challenges of mobile military systems. On October 1, 2005, Argon ST acquired Radix Technologies. The acquisition of Radix brought in the signal processing technology for reconnaissance and navigation, complementing Argon ST’s core advanced signal intercept and processing capabilities and systems. The current result of mergers and acquisition is a C4ISR company with a research and development heritage.
