Blue Sky Network to merge into NAL Research

Satcom firm Blue Sky Network has agreed a merger with NAL Research, a provider of IoT, positioning, navigation and timing products and services, with the two companies to be combined under the NAL Research brand.

Robert Bills, the President of NAL Research, will lead the merged company, which will continue to offer all existing NAL and Blue Sky Network brands and products.

NAL and Blue Sky Network are both part of the ACR Group, and are both Iridium service partners.

“This collaboration marks an exciting chapter in our journey to provide the most advanced and reliable satcom and APNT (assured position, navigation, and timing) solutions on the market,” said Mr Bills.

“Together, we are better positioned to deliver cutting-edge and transformative solutions that meet and exceed the unique needs of our customers.”

The merger immediately folds Blue Sky Network’s headquarters, operations and production capabilities into NAL Research’s headquarters in Virginia, US. NAL Research will maintain its office locations in Chantilly and Fredericksburg, and Blue Sky Network’s office in Brazil.
