HERNDON, Va. -- Peraton has successfully completed its previously announced acquisition of Perspecta Inc., establishing the company as the world's leading mission capability integrator and transformative enterprise IT provider.

The new Peraton has annual revenues of approximately $7 billion, a current backlog of approximately $24.4 billion, and a three-year qualified pipeline of $200 billion. The company employs 22,000 employees; 7,500 have a top-secret SCI clearance.

This announcement follows Peraton's February acquisition of Northrop Grumman's integrated mission support and IT solutions business. The new Peraton unites the three heritage companies to create a top-tier, next-generation national security provider that is positioned to serve as a valued partner to essential government agencies across the intelligence, space, cyber, defense, civilian, health, state and local markets.

Peraton has aligned the new company around nine business organizations:

It will be led by Jeff Bohling, previously senior vice president and general manager, Perspecta's Defense group.

Citizen Security & Public Services sector: This sector provides solutions to U.S. Cabinet-level civil and national security agencies and major elements of the public sector across the country.

Global Health & Financial Solutions sector: This sector delivers advanced, mission-specific technology solutions for citizen and human services agencies, as well as military, public, and global health customers covering critical areas such as COVID-19, Medicare, and citizen-centric services. It will be led by Tarik Reyes, previously president, Peraton's Civil & Health sector, and former vice president, Civil and Health Business Unit, Northrop Grumman.

Peraton Labs: Peraton Labs delivers engineering and applied research to enable government agencies, utilities and commercial enterprises to fully exploit the future of communications, analytics and cybersecurity.

MELBOURNE, Fla. -- L3Harris Technologies and Air Tractor have teamed to produce the AT-802U Sky Warden, an affordable, production-ready aircraft designed for airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and other missions in extreme combat environments.

Sky Warden is based on the rugged and capable Air Tractor AT-802, which features the largest payload capacity of any single-engine turboprop aircraft. It hosts L3Harris’ world-class family of communications, sensors and airborne ISR solutions. The platform is backed by the company’s extensive turnkey ISR operation experience.

The multi-mission platform provides the operator agility and flexibility to identify, track and react to counter threats. It merges the capabilities of larger ISR and armed aircraft into one resilient package. It is also capable of takeoff and landing on unimproved airstrips - allowing the aircraft to be deployed and co-located with special mission operators.

"Air Tractor aircraft were developed precisely to operate in austere environments with limited infrastructure," said Jim Hirsch, President, Air Tractor, Inc. "Our aircraft are built to offer unparalleled flexibility, essential ingredients for special mission operators."

"Our mission systems, platforms, direct operators and sustainment teams have supported more than 1.3 million combat hours of special operations ISR and attack missions in the past 10 years," said Luke Savoie, President, Aviation Services, L3Harris. "Combining that experience with Air Tractor, one of the largest turboprop aircraft OEMs in the world, enables our team to design and provide a mature platform capable of operating anywhere in the world and provides the tools needed to support any mission."

Sky Warden’s name commemorates two best-in-class, multi-mission special operations combat platforms. It merges the deep history of the Vietnam-era A-1E Sky Raider with the present-day U-28, which uses the callsign "Warden" during combat operations. Sky Warden combines their heritage and capabilities to collapse the stack, providing one aircraft capable of multiple mission roles.

LONDON -- Palantir Technologies Inc. recently announced the renewal of its contracts with the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy for its Palantir Foundry platform. Palantir’s software is used by the Royal Navy across a broad spectrum of areas from strategic workforce planning to supply chain management to the COVID-19 response. Terms of the contract were not reported.

Palantir is enabling naval personnel, as well as civilians and contractors, most without programming expertise, to access and engage with a curated, single source of truth. Users are empowered to run complex models to test scenarios to make better decisions, faster. The Royal Navy has developed its own digital skills and data expertise through its adoption of Foundry - a growing number of naval personnel are programming and building directly in Foundry, showcasing their growing self-sufficiency and new technical competence.

The renewed agreements will allow the Royal Navy to continue reaping the benefits of a more empowered workforce, whilst keeping tight control of security and privacy of its data, and full ownership of the logic behind its data model.

The investment the Royal Navy made in Foundry meant it was able to react quickly to the COVID-19 crisis early last year. It took the Royal Navy less than 48 hours to stand up a Recognised People Picture in Foundry using self-reported updates to inform leadership of the impact of the pandemic on its force. The Royal Navy is applying this new data-driven approach to ensure readiness of its strength, proactive alerting on equipment health and inventory risk, fully transparent and informed maintenance delivery, all combined to increase the availability of its forces.
