Tyto Athene President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Meilhammer said his company looks forward to joining forces with the GSI team.
“We believe that the cultures of Tyto and GSI are highly complementary as both are focused on delivering superior solutions to the customer and mission,” he added. “The incremental IDIQ contract vehicles that will convey with GSI, such as Alliant 2, RS3, ITES-3S, Seaport-NxG, and MEGASTAR, will provide us new ways to contract with our customers.”
