London-based security, arms, and aerospace firm BAE Systems plc (LON: BA.) has been in the limelight recently with its Automated Flight Planning Service migrating to cloud. The company is also planning to deliver over 500 electric drive systems for Ontario bus fleets.
MAFPS cloud migration
BAE Systems plc is the biggest defence contractor across Europe. The company is a pioneer for the Air Force of the US. The Mobility Air Forces Automated Flight Planning Service, or MAFPS, of BAE Systems is now among the earliest mission-critical applications to entirely migrate to cloud. This move is in line with the transformation objectives of the US Air Force. The company provides the US Air Force with highly capable warfighters helping in mission supervision and swift airspace management.
The company expects MAFPS’s deployment to cloud to enhance the operational availability of its top services for its clients. The automated system would support in the reorganisation of flights for a better and efficient future of airspace operations.

Electric drive systems for hybrid transit buses
The leader in electric propulsion, BAE Systems, has recently announced that the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has chosen it to deliver over 335 electric drive systems. The systems would be used in its latest convoy of hybrid transit buses which have the capability to reach zero-emissions.

The focus of the company is on making transportation more sustainable and efficient by providing the sector with advanced solutions to achieve the zero-emissions target. With an experience of 25 years, BAE Systems has a lot of understanding regarding the development of electric propulsion systems and add-ons for transit buses.
