Communications & Power Industries said today it has agreed to buy the antenna systems business of General Dynamics Mission Systems.

The unit, known as SATCOM Technologies, designs, builds and installs satellite communications antenna systems and provides related radio frequency products and electronics, according to Communications & Power Industries, a manufacturer of electronic components and subsystems for communications and defense markets.

The acquired "business will complement CPI's existing portfolio of communications products for government, military and commercial applications," the company said.

The deal is slated to close before the end of 2019, and terms were not disclosed.
