Airbus recently announced that they would sell a suite of assets including its commercial satellite communications services business, mainly mobile satellite services — as it focuses on its core space, military aircraft, missiles and other divisions*.

Within its defense and space division, Airbus said that it would focus on satellites, launchers, military aircraft and missile systems because it considers those as areas of future growth.

“Given the tight budgetary situation in our home countries and increasing competition on global markets, the portfolio review is an essential element to further develop our defence and space business and ensure its competitiveness,” Airbus Defence and Space Chief Executive Bernhard Gerwert said in a statement.
