Curtiss Wright Corporation
: 23 June, 2010  (Company News)
Specialist Electronics Services from the UK is now in the hands of Curtiss-Wright who has bought into the manufacture of rugged electronics processors and encrypted systems for defence use
Curtiss-Wright has acquired Specialist Electronics Services (SES) for 15 million pounds Sterling, or approximately $22 million. SES designs and manufactures rugged, security encrypted data recorders, processors, display media and software for aerospace and defence applications. SES will operate within the Integrated Sensing division of Curtiss-Wright's Motion Control segment.

'SES's proprietary designs are based on commercial-off-the-shelf technologies, highly tailored with data security encryption and extreme environmental packaging, which will enhance Curtiss-Wright's leadership position in the aerospace and defence electronic systems market,' said Martin Benante, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 'While the United Kingdom represents SES's largest current market, integration with Curtiss-Wright offers increased access to mainland Europe and North America.'

With estimated 2010 sales of 6.5 million pounds, or approximately $9 million, SES provides a range of rugged products for airborne and other severe environments, with particular expertise in solid state data recording, computing and control display units. Key platforms include fixed-wing, rotary-wing and unmanned aircraft, tactical vehicles and navy vessels. Proprietary technologies include high integrity mission computing, engine monitoring, multi-channel video and data mission recording, rugged and extreme environmental computing, and software for data transmission and technical analysis. Founded in 1991, the company is based in Camberley, UK and has 41 employees.
