Global aerospace and defence services provider Thales on Tuesday announced that it has completed the acquisition of US-based tech firm Guavus.

Guavus specialises in real-time Big Data analytics with a total employee strength of 250, 140 of which are based out of Gurugram.

“The acquisition of Guavus represents a tremendous accelerator of our digital strategy for the benefit of all our customers, whether in aeronautics, space, rail signalling, defence or security,” said Patrice Caine, Chairman and CEO, Thales, in a statement.
