Frontier Technology Inc., a provider of mission-tailored services and solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense and the intelligence community, is expanding its cyber operations in Huntsville. The company is investing approximately $10 million to expand its secure facility space by 25,000 square feet.
The FTI Huntsville Analysis and Cyber Security Center (HACS Center) will provides a secure environment where the company’s government customers, industry partners and academics can work together.
“FTI is able to provide the most powerful insights, skilled talent and sophisticated technology to deter bad actors and defend critical military infrastructure and intelligence,” said Lincoln Hudson, chief operations officer, FTI. “The HACS Center’s innovative edge will help us maintain our industry-leading standard and attract some of the country’s best cyber talent from in, around and beyond Huntsville.”
A cyber-attack occurs every 39 seconds on average, and the DoD is among the prime targets for a wide array of ever-evolving threats, according to FTI. FTI’s defensive cyber solutions offer advanced technologies and services to help customers maintain and optimize cyber defense, including mission cyber risk analysis, supply chain illumination, blue and gray space analysis, penetration testing, radio frequency analysis and cyber-enhanced threat intelligence analysis.
The HACS Center will have access to FTI’s vast library of operational technologies coupled with cutting-edge analytics. The center brings the company’s footprint in Huntsville to 40,000 square feet and will create 140 new jobs over the next three years.
“It is exciting to see the great leadership and professionalism the FTI team brings to decision analysis tools and in-depth cyber capabilities supporting DoD across the services,” said Jim Rogers, major general, U.S. Army (ret.) and board member of FTI. “The growth in Huntsville reinforces the importance of this work across all government agencies.”
The HACS Center is expected to be complete and operational by the first half of 2025.
