ROCKVILLE, Md. --- BAE Systems North America has completed its acquisition of Condor Pacific Industries Inc., Westlake Village, Calif., a producer of sensors and guidance systems for the aerospace industry, following receipt of all regulatory approvals.

The $58.5 million acquisition will strengthen BAE Systems activities in guidance and control of military systems.
