Curtiss-Wright announced on 18 March that it had completed the acquisition of Tactical Communications Group (TCG) in a USD50 million cash deal.
TCG will be incorporated into Curtiss-Wright’s defence business line, which will benefit from adding TCG’s tactical datalink software technologies to its offerings, particularly the line of flight test instrumentation systems.
TCG provides software that enhances the performance of datalink systems, providing the ability for operators to validate the links; provide more valuable data services over their networks; and apply analytics, simulation scripting, and visualisation of data, Curtiss-Wright said.
"This acquisition yields significant opportunities for growth by enhancing our existing flight test instrumentation offering with complementary tactical data link processing software, analytics and visualisation capabilities, and also providing penetration into the tactical data link test, simulation and training markets,” David Adams, chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright, said.
