  • Cassidian Is New Name For EADS Defense
    Posted by Bill Sweetman 3:11 PM on Sep 17, 2010

    If EADS Defense & Security was planning to get attention by changing its name to Cassidian, it has certainly succeeded.

    For the record, EADS says that the new name is a combination of the Latin cassida (helmet) and "meridian" and thus "symbolises worldwide protection and security."

    Opinions around the Aviation Week enterprise are diverse, but let's just say that "wow, that's a great name for a defense company" is not among them.
