The SI Buys Applied Communication Sciences
May 20, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The SI Organization, Inc. announced it has acquired Applied Communication Sciences (ACS), a provider of applied research, technical consulting and technology solutions to U.S. defense and intelligence agencies, U.S. civil government organizations, and commercial customers.
According to a release, formerly the research and engineering arm of Telcordia Technologies and with its origins tracing back to Bell Laboratories, ACS was established in January 2012 to mitigate any U.S. government concerns arising from the concurrent acquisition of Telcordia by Swedish-based Ericsson. ACS's key capability areas include cyber security and information assurance, network and operations, data analytics, advanced software and methodologies, wireless and mobility, application engineering and integration, smart grid, and optical networking and quantum technologies.
"With ACS, we are acquiring a technology company with a focus on cyber security, network communications and other leading-edge technologies key to critical infrastructure protection and optimization," said Bill Graham, President and CEO of the SI. "In light of the unique nature of much of ACS's work, acquisition by a U.S. owner will strengthen relationships with many U.S. government clients."
"Both our clients and our employees significantly benefit from this acquisition," said Brent Greene, ACS's Chief Executive Officer. "In the SI, it is clear we have found a strong fit for our unique culture of innovation."
The SI is a provider of full life cycle, mission-focused systems engineering and integration capabilities to the U.S. Intelligence Community, Department of Defense and other agencies.
