Atlanta-based Advanced Compliance Solutions, Inc. has acquired Rubicom Systems, a leader in aerospace and military testing for more than 20 years.

The acquisition greatly expands Advanced Compliance Solutions' EMC testing services. ACS is a leader in EMC, Product Safety, Wireless Certifications, and Environmental testing, and regulatory approval services. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Rubicom, based in Melbourne, Fl. and founded by Joe Barbee, specializes in EMC testing for military, aerospace and defense applications and counts Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins, and Avidyne Corp. as customers.

Rubicom will double its staff as part of the deal. Previously an EMC testing lab solely for the military, aerospace and defense markets, Rubicom now offers commercial testing services similar to ACS, including wireless certification and product safety testing.

"We are expanding our business geographically and through additional product offerings," said ACS co-founder Scott Proffitt. "Rubicom moves us squarely into the defense and aerospace markets."

Proffitt anticipates that Rubicom's revenues will grow 50 percent because of the deal, and the new addition will contribute an additional 30 percent to ACS' total revenues. ACS is growing rapidly as well, and is expected to boost revenues by 50 percent, Proffitt said.
