COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Colorado Springs, Colorado-based O’Neil Group Company, LLC (OGC) and Braxton Science & Technology Group, LLC (BSTG), are pleased to announce the acquisition of Space/Ground System Solutions Inc. (SGSS). SGSS, based in Melbourne, Florida, is an engineering firm specializing in command and control and embedded space applications.
Kevin O’Neil, OGC’s President and CEO, said, “This acquisition expands our national presence with offices in Melbourne and the D.C. area, and complements our current C2 offerings tremendously.”
SGSS will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of BSTG, leveraging the combined advantages of SGSS’s expertise in developing and sustaining government-owned software and BSTG’s expertise in commercially developed and sustained software and cyber security. Together, the BSTG enterprise will have a formidable capability to accelerate innovations with human-machine collaboration for military and commercial customers operating in today’s highly competitive and contested environments, while maintaining a strong identity and relationships with their current customer base.
The sale should close in the first quarter of 2016, pending approval of BSTG’s Board of Directors and other regulatory agencies.
SGSS’s President, Bob Tormala, noted that BSTG is an excellent partner because, “SGSS was founded on the premise that quality engineers are the most important factor when designing and developing high technology software systems for space applications. We chose to become part of the BSTG team because they have a similar outlook, customer base, and focus along with a talented and capable engineering staff. We decided to join a company that promotes innovative solutions, sound engineering practices and outstanding customer support.”
The O’Neil Group Company has successfully acquired engineering firms starting with Braxton Technologies in 2008, NDP Group in 2013 and Gnostech, LLC in 2014. OGC is continually looking for new companies and technologies to add to their portfolio with the goal of exceeding their customer’s needs.
