SPAWAR, one of the U.S. Navy’s three acquisition commands, supports the fleet and delivers advanced communications and information capabilities. Part of Team SPAWAR, SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) is the principal Navy Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and Acquisition Center for C4ISR and Information Operations (IO).
“In today’s budget environment, our clients, including the Navy, are looking at the cost of doing business,” said David Karp, Senior Vice President, Booz Allen. “We’re helping the U.S. Navy be a smarter buyer, and delivering tailored systems engineering and integration solutions to reduce cost and at the same time, increase capabilities.”
Booz Allen’s recent purchase of the Defense Systems Engineering and Support (DSES) division of ARINC Incorporated has added to the firm’s existing engineering strength and advanced the strategy to bring clients broader and deeper technical expertise.
Booz Allen has a long history of supporting the US Navy. In April 2011, Booz Allen was awarded a contract to support SPAWAR SSC Pacific with cyberspace science, research, engineering and technology integration. Booz Allen won its first contract from the Navy in 1940 when Secretary of Navy Frank Knox asked the firm to help prepare US Navy for World War II. Through the war, Booz Allen management engineers cut through red tape of military bureaucracy to get fast results.
