Boeing Commercial Electronics was an Irving, Texas-based division of Boeing responsible for the manufacture of electronic components for the company's aircraft. It is now part of BAE Systems Platform Solutions.

Boeing announced the sale of the division in 2003 as part of a move to outsource component manufacture and "concentrate on the integration and final assembly of commercial aircraft." The Fort Worth Star Telegram said "Boeing has sought to sell several operations that it said are too narrowly focused and costly for the company to manage efficiently."[1]

On 30 June 2004 BAE Systems North America announced the acquisition of Boeing Commercial Electronics for $66 million.[2][3]
