Defense contractor BAE Systems is opening a new facility in Manchester, its fourth location in New Hampshire. The Manchester facility will develop electromagnetic warfare technology.

Underscoring the importance of the moment, the governor and the state’s congressional delegation were at the opening event. US Senator Maggie Hassan said not only is the facility important to Manchester and the state, but also vital to the world as a whole. “We cannot have the quality of life that we are so lucky to have here without caring and fighting for democracy,” Hassan said. “More than anything, that’s what you all are. That’s what it’s all about today.” BAE officials said the work being done at the facility will help bring home the people who protect the country safely. “Including the design and development of the electronic warfare system for the F-35 Lightning II, which is the only fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft in production in the world today,” said Lisa Aucoin of BAE Systems. as well.
