Federal technology solutions provider Octo Consulting Group last month acquired Connexta in a deal that increases its presence in the intelligence community and Defense Department and expands its capabilities in open source software, geospatial intelligence and C4ISR with key products.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Connexta, which is based in Phoenix, has about 130 personnel, primarily with expertise in full-stack and cloud engineering, bringing Northern Virginia-based Octo’s portfolio of technologies to nearly 700.
Connexta provides open source software solutions to meet its customers intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data interoperability needs. Within the DoD, Octo highlighted the Air Force and its software labs as key DoD customers of Connexta’s. Connexta also has international customers.
Octo said the integration of the two companies “will provide U.S. federal government customers expanded access to Connexta’s solution offerings including its Distributed Data Framework, a powerful geospatially-enabled search and integration platform, and Alliance, a system for enterprise ISR data sharing. These tools promote collaborative use of discovered data by analysts to produce enhanced ISR products.”
Octo is a portfolio company of the private equity firm Arlington Capital Partners. KippsDeSanto & Co. served as Connexta’s financial adviser on the deal.
