KMS will provide C4ISR, cyber security compliance and  test range engineering services for SUBSYSTEMs’ clients.

In October 2016, KMS began a five-year prime contractor task order as part of the Navy’s SeaPort-e program to provide engineering and technical support for Ocean Engineering Programs under Naval Sea Systems Command and its Naval Surface Warfare Carderock Division. KMS also received a five-year task order in March 2016 to provide technology refresh products and prototype systems for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport.
