„The CMA will now prepare a report on the national security aspects of the proposed transaction,“ the business department said. „This is a legal process to ensure that the impact of a proposed sale on national security is fully assessed.“ Cobham offers an innovative range of technologies and services to solve demanding problems in the areas of trade, defence and security, from space to the depths of the ocean. „The government is trading in Britain`s future prosperity and security by avoiding protecting our defensive production capacity.“ Cobham`s work supports advanced military technology, including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Eurofighter Typhoon and EA-18G Growler, and may require a full government investigation to assess the impact on national security. At a general meeting on Monday, Cobham shareholders voted in favour of the sale by 93% of favourable opinions, but family members of the company`s founder, Sir Alan Cobham, opposed the deal on the grounds of national security. . . .
