BlueHalo is a rapidly expanding national security platform with capabilities in directed energy, counter-unmanned aircraft systems, space superiority, space technology, advanced radio frequency, autonomy, cyber and more.
“We could not be more thrilled to welcome the Asymmetrik team to BlueHalo as we bring our combined capabilities to bear solving some of the IC’s most challenging problems,” Moneymaker said. “The combination of Asymmetrik’s and BlueHalo’s deep technical capabilities, cultures of excellence, and focus on the mission will only further enhance our ability to serve our customers’ most important and complex needs.”
At private-equity firm Arlington Capital Partners, Partner David Wodlinger lauded the move.
