Curtiss-Wright Controls, based in Charlotte, N.C., will pay about $16 million to acquire Skyquest Systems Ltd., a Basildon, U.K.-based supplier of aircraft video displays, recorders and video/radar converters for surveillance aircraft. The business will become part of Curtiss-Wright Controls’ Embedded Computing group. “The Skyquest product family complements our Embedded Computing product offering,” said David Adams, co-chief operating officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “The addition of Skyquest’s airborne video solutions to our product family will expand our systems offering for customers looking for a total solutions provider for their mission critical applications. Furthermore, Curtiss-Wright Controls will be able to grow the Skyquest brand by providing it access to many new markets.” Skyquest Systems has estimated 2009 sales of about $8 million.
