Boeing announced a reorganization of its defense division Thursday, shufflling its leadership and giving the unit a new name: Boeing Defense, Space & Security.

The division — which makes military jets, helicopters, bombs, missiles and missile defense systems, as well as satellites, communications and intelligence systems and space vehicles — had been called Integrated Defense Systems since 2002.

The division's new chief executive, Dennis Muilenburg, said in a statement that the new name reflects reduced revenue opportunities due to "anticipated flattened defense budgets" and the consequent need to grow in other fields.

Muilenburg mentioned cyber-security, energy, intelligence, network-centric operations and logistics as promising areas for expansion. He named nine vice-presidents to take charge of specific business units.
