Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division announced today that it expects to significantly enhance its position in and commitment to the US and global data acquisition and flight test instrumentation (FTI) markets, following Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s announced intention to acquire Teletronics Technology Corporation (TTC).

The acquisition is expected to close in early 2017 and remains subject to regulatory approval and other closing conditions. TTC is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-technology data acquisition and comprehensive FTI systems for critical aerospace and defence applications.

The addition of TTC’s platform test product portfolio will greatly expand the breadth of the Defense Solutions division’s FTI, usage monitoring, and space-qualified commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products and services, and will enable it to better serve its customers in the US and worldwide.

"With the acquisition of TTC, Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division firmly establishes its position as a leading global supplier of data acquisition and flight test instrumentation systems for the aerospace and defence markets," said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division.

"Combined with our current avionics and electronics solutions, which support space instrumentation, flight test, telemetry, ground test, system monitoring, structural monitoring, and mission recording applications, TTC’s broad product portfolio will greatly expand our market reach and capabilities."
