Space Operations


We deliver superior end-to-end space system development and operational solutions for the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community customers. DAC is focused on establishing and providing a long history of innovative solutions that address emerging threats challenging detection, warning, and defense efforts to the United States and our allies. Utilizing surface, air and space based systems DAC is able to deliver increased situational awareness and provide real/near-real time actionable information supporting critical user needs in battlespace awareness, technical intelligence, missile warning and missile defense mission areas. The DAC team delivers substantial value, focusing on quality project/program execution, efficiency and affordability, delivering effective system solutions.


DAC works closely with our partners and customers to establish a solid technical baseline for both conceptual and developmental programs with an emphasis on effective concept of operations and service oriented architecture integration approaches for critical mission roles. We apply our experience to the system engineering and development process for continual refinement and optimization of the technical solution resulting in a fully verified and validated system ready for operational use.


DAC provides analytical solutions, problem solving services and or products to solve complex problems.
