PacStar® was founded in the year 2000, and it currently employs around 145 people including more than 30 engineers. It mainly generates revenue from the ground defense market.

The Chairman and CEO of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation, David C. Adams, is excited to welcome PacStar® into its family and believes that the acquisition would help to enhance the high spectrum modernization programs in the U.S. military force. He further added that, both the companies with their individual expertise, would create synergies to leverage the network management and communication systems for the warfighters.

Founded in 1929, Curtiss-Wright employs nearly 8,900 people globally. The company provides highly engineered and technically advanced products and services for the industrial, defense, commercial, and energy markets.
