Defense & Aerospace

Our Mission: Your Defense and Aerospace Success

Defense and Aerospace

Defense and aerospace are rapidly evolving industries, experiencing dynamic demand from emerging markets, ongoing fleet and aircraft updates, and continual decreases, reorganizations, and reprioritization of military and reserve forces. Compounding that, global economic challenges and shifts in government purchasing have changed the budget environment as well.

We field one of the nation’s deepest lineups of senior military and procurement leaders from across all branches, complemented by expert former defense, aviation, technology, and aerospace industry executives. Together, we provide the insights and experience needed to enable our clients to succeed across the industry spectrum.

We work in all major geographies and business objectives, with clients ranging from the world’s largest defense and aerospace contractors to small business innovators and suppliers. We provide strategic business development planning and positioning, business and product development, market penetration, Congressional and U.S. military advocacy and liaison, due diligence and M&A strategies.

Our team includes the nation’s top BRAC consulting team, intelligence community, aerospace, IT, UAV, cyber and homeland security experts. We help our clients identify and exploit new opportunities, improve operations, develop products and technologies, and plan and implement strategies to secure sustained success.
