Allen’s existing engineering capabilities, and to bring to our clients broader
and deeper expertise in technical areas such as C4ISR where we see growth
potential,” said Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen’s Chairman, Chief Executive
Officer, and President. “DSES also brings to us additional existing technical
support contracts for the US Navy and Air Force, supplementing our strong
presence in the defense market. Beyond that, we expect that the match of
outstanding people, client relationships, and a focus on client mission – as
well as the proven track record of quality delivery by DSES – will strengthen
our business going forward.”
