Well, the interesting thing here to think about regarding Agfa Gevaert is that they currently make a quite a number of panchromatic b/w films in various ISO's which they market as aerial photography films. They also manufacture Motion picture film stocks, and Microfilm stocks. They also make C-41 color negative film stocks and a Color transparency film stock, as well as offer in-house slitting and converting. The question that comes to mind is...are the b/w film stocks based on common, shared technology between Agfa/Germany and Agfa/Gevaert? Would the emulsion formulas already be close? How much of a stretch would it be to take a formula that is already similar and make it more similar?
