Moog has acquired QuickSet International, a manufacturer of precision positioning systems and pan-and-tilt mechanisms. The products are used to position surveillance cameras, thermal imagers, sensors and communication antennas.

QuickSet is a leading supplier of the equipment for military, homeland security and commercial surveillance applications.
