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. Markets served include the positioning of surveillance cameras for securing national borders, commercial ports, strategic missile silos, military airbases and commercial airports.

The company’s products can also be used by the navy and maritime industry in shipboard protection systems. One of the most exciting potential applications is in driver-vision enhancement for mine-resistant, ambush-protected (MRAP) military vehicles, the company said.

Moog is a worldwide designer, manufacturer and integrator of precision control components and systems. Its high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, automated industry machinery and medical equipment.
