Government technology solutions provider Centauri on Tuesday said it has acquired Kord Technologies, Inc., strengthening its capabilities in the defense market.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Centauri, which is based in Northern Virginia, now has about 1,500 employees following the acquisition of Alabama-based Kord, which brought around 250 employees as part of the deal.
Centauri is the brand given the company earlier this year following the acquisitions of Xebec Global and Dependable Global Solutions by Integrity Applications Inc. The company provides high-end engineering, intelligence, cyber security and advance technology solutions to the intelligence, defense and national security communities.
Kord has capabilities in directed energy, missile defense, space and cyber. The company is on Raytheon’s [RTN] team competing for the Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor radar and is working on optimizing and testing integrated defense architectures for the solution. Kord is also the prime contractor for the Army’s Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office for the Maneuver Short Range Air Defense Directed Energy initiative.
Centauri said the acquisition also allows it to offer a broader range of solutions to its intelligence and defense customers.
Tom Young, a co-founder of Kord and its president, will join Centauri’s leadership team.
A Centauri spokesman told Defense Daily that neither company used financial advisers on the deal.
