Boeing has acquired CPU Technology’s Acalis business. Acalis microprocessors contain hardware and software that can guard mission-critical onboard systems in Boeing platforms. CPU Technology was privately held, and the terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Chris Chadwick (President, Boeing Military Aircraft): Acalis provides security-on-a-chip that can help defend the manned and unmanned aircraft we build at Boeing today and in the future for customers around the world.

Acalis will be integrated into Boeing Military Aircraft’s Global Strike division. The Acalis business employs approximately 40 people and is based in Pleasanton, Calif.
