The business was formed in June 2005 as BAE Systems Electronics and Integrated Solutions by the merger of BAE's Information & Electronic Warfare Systems (IEWS) and Information & Electronic Systems Integration (IESI) units. The former was the Lockheed Martin Aerospace Electronic Systems business, acquired by BAE in 2000. Lockheed identified AES as a candidate for disposal following a strategic review in 1999. BAE Systems agreed to acquire the group in July and completed its acquisition of AES on 27 November 2000. The group encompassed Sanders Associates, Fairchild Systems and Lockheed Martin Space Electronics & Communications. The purchase of this group by BAE has been described as "precedent setting" given the advanced and classified nature of many of that company's products.
This division was formerly known as Lockheed Martin Control Systems (LMCS). LMCS was acquired by BAE from Lockheed Martin in April 2000 for $510 million USD. In August 2004 BAE acquired Boeing Commercial Electronics for $66 million (£36m) and merged it into Platform Solutions. The division has its HQs in Endicott, New York and sites in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Ontario, California; Redmond, Washington; and Rochester, Kent.
BAE Systems Platform Solutions manufactures Full Authority Digital Engine Controls, Fly by wire controls, mission computers, space vehicle controls, the HybriDrive vehicle propulsion system, and rail transport controls.
The company's flight control systems are used on Boeing's 757, 767, 777, C-17, F/A-18 and V-22 aircraft as well as the Northrop Grumman B-2 bomber, the Saab Gripen and the F-35. Platform Solutions also provides the electronic engine controls for all General Electric and CFM International commercial jet engines.
