CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 3, 2015 — UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp., will acquire N2 Imaging Systems LLC to expand UTC's portfolio of military imaging products. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"The addition of N2 reflects our unwavering dedication to rapidly developing the most advanced imaging technology at an attractive price to support the [U.S. Army’s Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Acquisition] mission now and in the future," said John Trezza, vice president and general manager of UTC Aerospace Systems' Force Protection business. "Adding our experience in designing, developing and fielding sophisticated technology to the innovation of N2 will further support on-time execution of the Army's Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG) program."
