Dave Dzaran, CEO of Centauri, said in a statement released Tuesday the company aims to help government customers address national security threats with the use of technology across the military, intelligence, space, missile and cyber domains.
Tom Young, president of Kord, will join the Centauri leadership team as part of the deal.
Kord has invested significantly in projects to develop advanced materials, propulsion technology and computational fluid dynamics.
The U.S. Army chose the Huntsville, Ala.-based company to lead the development and integration of a laser technology onto Stryker combat vehicles through a potential $484M contract awarded in August under the military branch’s Directed Energy Initiative.
Centauri adopted its current name upon the combination of Arlington Capital Partner’s portfolio companies Integrity Applications Inc., Xebec Global and Dependable Global Solutions in April.
