CDI is involved in high performance in-flight entertainment systems for commercial aircrafts while also having the potential in electrical, mechanical and software designs. It also has experience in test and certifications crucial for airborne systems.

“This strategic acquisition of CDI brings together two innovative companies that focus on specialized high-performance computing, with highly complementary technologies and skill sets,”Steve Cooper, CEO of OSS, said in the press release. “Together, we have more capable resources for bringing high-performance computing to the in-flight entertainment market.”

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), OSS gave a breakdown of how the company would acquire CDI. OSS said that a cash purchase price of US$667,000 would be delivered to CDI while US$370,096 would be assumed as working capital loan obligation.
