CVG-Avtec provides satellite-based communications to government and commercial markets worldwide, including payload data processing, simulation and testing for military, intelligence, government and commercial programs. The acquisition is expected to help Integral expand its client base and product line. CVG-Avtec has about 100 employees, who will be retained in the purchase.

Concurrent with the acquisition, Integral has obtained a $55 million secured credit line with three banks. The acquisition will be financed with a combination of the company's existing cash and loans under the new line of credit.
