Rockwell Collins Inks Deal to Purchase Christie’s Matrix Projector Line

acquisitionRockwell Collins (NYSE: COL) has agreed to buy Christie Digital Systems’ Matrix series of projectors for an undisclosed sum in an effort to complement its training projectors and simulation offerings to aviation and military clients.

The deal covers Christie’s Matrix SIM and Matrix StIM projectors and other software tools and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2016, Rockwell Collins said Tuesday.

Christie will continue to manufacture the projectors, while Rockwell Collins will provide integration, systems engineering and service support for Matrix projectors and other future products.
