Curtiss-Wright on Friday announced it will pay $13.25 million to acquire Predator Systems Inc. (PSI), of Boca Raton, Fla., a manufacturer of motion control components and subsystems for ground defense, ordnance guidance and aerospace applications. PSI will operate within the Flight Systems division of Curtiss-Wright's Motion Control segment, the company said.

"PSI's proprietary electro-hydraulic technologies broaden Curtiss-Wright's motion control portfolio, further entrenching our position as a premier supplier for the aerospace and defense markets," said Martin R. Benante, chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright. "PSI's engineering expertise and advanced product technologies add key building blocks to our actuation, sensor and electronics product lines."

With 2010 sales of about $8 million, the company's key technologies include smart manifolds that feature embedded electronics, hydraulic motors and pumps, electro-hydraulic servo valves, dampers and
hydraulic fuses.
