Camber Corp. to Boost Cyber Offering with Acquisition of EADS NA Subsidiary, DS3

Huntsville, Ala.-based defense contractor Camber Corp. announced it has acquired EADS North America subsidiary Defense Security and Systems Solutions, known as DS3, which provides cybersecurity and IT solutions for the Defense Department.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The acquisition of DS3 is expected to deepen Camber’s cybersecurity offerings for its National Security Group.

“DS3’s experience and capabilities in cyber warfare are rapidly gaining recognition as a key element of the Nation’s cyber arsenal, ” said DS3 CEO Ron Moore. “As part of the Camber team, we are excited to be able to offer our customers additional and enhanced solutions for cyber security and defense as well as our other services.”

Camber’s acquisition of DS3 comes after a number of high-profile buys over the past couple of years. In late 2009, Camber acquired both Veritas Analytics and i2S.

“We are proud to unite the DS3 team with the Camber team, at such a critical time in cybersecurity training, ” said Camber founder and CEO Walter Batson.
