Accelerating and transforming warfighter technology

  • Combined solutions will accelerate innovative, tech-enabled solution delivery at the edge

McLean, VA – Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) announced today that it has acquired PAR Government Systems Corporation (PGSC), a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR). The acquisition will combine PGSC’s edge technologies with Booz Allen’s deep mission expertise and digital battlespace solutions to accelerate and transform warfighter technology on the front lines.  

Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Rome, New York, PGSC delivers differentiated services and solutions in strategic mission areas, including the provision of real-time communications and mobile situational awareness to maintain battlespace dominance. PGSC’s Integrated Tactical Solutions (ITS), Innovative and Commercial Solutions (ICS), and Intelligence and Readiness Operations (IRO) businesses have long-standing track records of innovation and development of technology-driven solutions for a range of government customers.

As a leading defense technology provider for the Department of Defense, Booz Allen combines deep mission expertise with advanced technology to accelerate results across the warfighting lifecycle. The acquisition strengthens the firm’s ability to meet the evolving needs of defense clients and adds highly technical and cleared talent with mission-relevant expertise to Booz Allen’s already strong global defense talent base.

 Additionally, PGSC’s capabilities complement Booz Allen’s space data solutions, increasing the firm’s ability to leverage dual-use commercial intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) to augment situational awareness capabilities for operators at the edge. PGSC’s suite of imagery and communications tools will also provide key operational mission capabilities that enable scaled operational planning, data sharing, visualization, and target management.

PGSC will integrate into Booz Allen’s global defense business led by Sector President Judi Dotson. The acquisition further broadens and deepens Booz Allen’s ability to bring cutting-edge technologies to evolving defense missions and deliver innovative solutions to warfighters in the digital battlespace.

“With increasing threats to joint all domain operations and heightened geopolitical uncertainty, securing the nation’s future against the pacing threat requires industry to invest and innovate in new ways. This acquisition reinforces Booz Allen’s commitment to help accelerate the modernization of tactical warfighting mission systems and secure the future,” said Dotson.

Combining PGSC’s skilled workforce, innovative capabilities and products, and dedicated client commitment with Booz Allen’s software development capabilities, talent, and deep mission expertise will expand and enhance multiple solutions that address urgent national security priorities and geopolitical challenges, including tools to deliver advanced geospatial mapping, counter uncrewed aerial systems (C-UAS), improve situational awareness, and support proliferated Low Earth Orbit (pLEO) space data solutions.

“Booz Allen and PGSC share a deep commitment to addressing the evolving and systemic threats the nation faces with technology and solutions that drive greater mission outcomes,” said Michael Nelson, president at PGSC. “We look forward to applying our combined solutions for greater and broader impact on missions that matter, and infusing our analytical development with increased resources, tools, team members, and industry-level best practices to empower the nation’s warfighters and meet these next-gen warfare demands.”

The acquisition continues to strengthen Booz Allen’s position at the intersection of mission and technology, aligned with the firm’s VoLT (Velocity, Leadership, Technology) growth strategy, its investment thesis, and current and anticipated Department of Defense priorities.

Jefferies LLC and King & Spalding LLP advised Booz Allen on the transaction. Baird and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP advised PAR Technology Corporation.
