Curtiss-Wright has acquired Tactical Communications Group (TCG), a designer and manufacturer of tactical data link (TDL) software solutions for critical military communications systems, the company announced on 18 March.

The acquired business will operate within Curtiss-Wright's defence segment.

TCG’s software solutions help secure and exchange wireless communications, including voice, imagery, text and C2 messages between various platforms such as ships, aircraft, weapons, ground vehicles and dismounted soldiers. These solutions allow platform integrators to validate their data links, provide more valuable data services on their networks, and utilise comprehensive analytics, simulation, scripting and visualisation of network data to drive effective training and situational awareness solutions.

David Adams, chairman and CEO of 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.’
