Germantown, Md.-based Amentum said Tuesday it aims to provide information technology, mission assurance and intelligence support to U.S. federal agencies, allied governments and commercial clients as an independent company.

“We are excited to continue this legacy as an independent company and continue to deliver outstanding performance for our customers’ critical missions,” Vollmer added.
