Fairfax, VA-based Salient CRGT, an IT solutions provider specializing in software development, cyber security and infrastructure solutions, has been awarded a Department of Defense (DoD) subcontract to assist with weapon systems operations and maintenance at its Port San Antonio site.
This announcement further grows San Antonio’s home to the second-largest concentration of cybersecurity experts in the U.S., with much of that growth taking place on the Port’s campus. As a result, Salient is adding several new jobs in the region, including an array of IT engineers, architects and data analysts.
Under the $6.4-million award, Salient will work alongside lead contractor Centech Group – also based in Virginia – to aid the cryptologic and cybersystems division of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC). AFLCMC is responsible for the acquisition and complete life cycle support of all aircraft, engines, munitions and electronic/cyber systems for the Air Force and its international partners.
Possessing a wealth of experience in transforming IT services, Salient will support weapons system operations and help maintain legacy infrastructure, network, systems and operation support for the Air Force Cyber Command & Control Mission System.
"We are excited to team with Centech providing critical cyber mission support to the USAF," said Tom Ferrando, CEO of Salient CRGT. "Operating, sustaining and modernizing the system that provides the situational awareness, direction, and control of cyber forces to effectively integrate cyber operations with combat operations in other domains."
Salient CRGT is strategically situated close to its DoD customer at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, which also operates the Air Force Cyber Command headquarter operations at the Port.
