SOSi consolidates defense IT and intelligence solutions units
New Defense and Intelligence Solutions Group makes up a third of Reston defense contractor's portfolio
Reston-based defense and government contractor SOS International LLC (SOSi) announced Tuesday it is consolidating its defense information technology and intelligence solutions business units into a new Defense and Intelligence Solutions Group.
The new business unit will be led by Ed Bachl, co-founder of Vykin Corp., a Florida-based information technology solutions company that SOSi acquired in July 2019.
“The lines between analytic services and technologies are continuously blurring as more defense and intelligence customers adopt and deploy cloud, machine learning, and artificial intelligence solutions enterprise-wide,” SOSi President and CEO Julian Setian said in a statement. “As a bold and agile organization, we are adapting our business structure to align with the operational and procurement strategy shifts exhibited by our customers in the defense and intelligence markets.”
SOSi has announced its intent to bid on an $8 billion Air Force contract to be solicited later this summer combining the MPE and Battlefield Information Collection and Exploitation Systems Extended (BICES-X) contracts.
SOSi’s Defense and Intelligence Solutions Group makes up one-third of the company’s business portfolio. The organization’s Mission Solutions Group provides long-range logistics, operations, maintenance and supply chain solutions to the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of State (DoS). Its Federal Solutions Group provides software development, enterprise IT engineering, enterprise resource system management, network operations, cybersecurity and language services to numerous non-DoD and non-Intelligence Community government customers, including the DoS, Department of Justice and Internal Revenue Service.
