Salt Lake City, Utah-based Parvus builds small-form factor rugged computing and networking subsystems used in C4ISR operations (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance), Curtiss-Wright said Tuesday.

Parvus expects to generate $23 million in sales during 2013 and will be a part of Curtiss-Wright’s controls segment.
