Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) is a division (business unit) of The Boeing Company. It is responsible for defense and aerospace products and services. It was formerly known as Boeing Integrated Defense Systems (IDS).
Boeing Integrated Defense Systems was formed in 2002 by combining the former "Military Aircraft and Missile Systems" and "Space and Communications" divisions. Boeing Defense, Space & Security makes Boeing the second-largest defense contractor in the world and was responsible for 45% of the company's income in 2011. BDS is based outside St. Louis, Missouri. Boeing was the largest employer in St. Louis County in 2000.
Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a consolidated group which brought together major names in aerospace; Boeing Military Airplane Company; Hughes Satellite Systems; Hughes Helicopters minus the civilian helicopters products (which were divested as MD Helicopters); Piasecki Helicopter, subsequently known as Boeing Vertol and then Boeing Helicopters; the St. Louis-based McDonnell division of the former McDonnell Douglas Company; and the former North American Aviation division of Rockwell International.

Boeing Defense, Space & Security is headquartered outside St. Louis at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport in Berkeley, Missouri, with other major employment locations in California and Washington state. Boeing chose to locate the defense systems offices in the St. Louis area because of the role of the space and aircraft programs of the former McDonnell Douglas location, and bipartisan support from area politicians.
Boeing BDS has been reorganized into the following subdivisions as of July 1, 2017:
- Autonomous Systems: Headed by Chris Raymond, will include drone-makers Insitu and Liquid Robotics subsidiaries. It will also handle Echo Voyager maritime vehicle; vertical lift unmanned systems; and certain electronic and information systems.
- Space and Missile Systems: To be headed by Jim Chilton, will handle Boeing’s satellites, Boeing's share of United Launch Alliance; International Space Station; Ground-based Midcourse Defense missile; Ground Based Strategic Deterrent; Joint Direct Attack Munition and Harpoon weapons, among others.
- Strike, Surveillance and Mobility: To be led by Shelley Lavender, will handle F-15 and F/A-18 fighters; P-8 maritime patrol aircraft; Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System; and modifications and upgrades to fixed-wing aircraft.
- Vertical Lift: To be led by David Koopersmith, will handle the AH-6i, AH-64 Apache, and CH-47 Chinook helicopters; and V-22 Osprey tilt rotor, which Boeing builds jointly with Bell Helicopter.
The Development, Global Operations, and Phantom Works segments, which also report to Leanne Caret, will largely be unchanged.
