NAL Research Announces Merger with Blue Sky Network

NAL Research today announced a merger with Blue Sky Network aimed at delivering enhanced satellite communications (SATCOM), mobile communications, and assured position, navigation, and timing (APNT) solutions to customers worldwide. The merger will unite both companies under NAL Research, leveraging their respective strengths to drive innovation, expand product offerings and optimize operations to better serve customers across commercial and government sectors.

Robert Bills, the President of NAL Research, will lead the merged company, which will continue to maintain and develop all existing NAL and Blue Sky Network brands and full line of products. The strategic integration sets the stage for a broader and enhanced portfolio of SATCOM and mobile solutions and APNT capabilities that incorporate NAL’s military-grade hardware products along with Blue Sky Network’s commercial products and cloud-based solutions.

“This collaboration marks an exciting chapter in our journey to provide the most advanced and reliable SATCOM and APNT solutions on the market,” said Bills. “Together, we are better positioned to deliver cutting-edge and transformative solutions that meet and exceed the unique needs of our customers.”

NAL and Blue Sky Network are both part of the ACR Group, a global thought leader and innovator in satellite-based communication, navigation and rescue technologies, and share a passion for developing and delivering reliable connectivity solutions worldwide.

The merger immediately folds Blue Sky Network’s headquarters, operations and production capabilities into NAL Research’s headquarters in Manassas, Va. NAL Research will maintain its office locations in Chantilly and Fredericksburg, Va., and Blue Sky Network’s office in Brazil.  Commercial and government customers can expect to benefit from new innovations, an expanded international footprint, and enhanced service and support.
