Booz Allen Hamilton is scheduled to inaugurate a 20,000-square-foot mission systems integration facility as part of its plan to expand engineering capabilities to meet customer needs, particularly the U.S. Navy.
The company said Tuesday it will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday at the new site near the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland.
The facility will be used for developing, designing, prototyping and testing technologies and weapon systems. It includes laboratories for testing, as well as hardware and software integration. The site also has an anechoic chamber and warehouse to support engineering processes and product upgrades.
“Our new facility is an answer and solution to the Department of Defense’s call to create and field technical capabilities at speed and scale, rapidly accelerating readiness and the deployment of new technology into the field,” said Judi Dotson, president of Booz Allen Hamilton’s global defense sector and recipient of the 2023 Wash100 Award.
