The SI Organization has purchased telecommunications research, consulting and technology services provider Applied Communication Sciences for an undisclosed amount.

ACS develops products for defense and intelligence agencies, civil government organizations, power utilities and telecom providers, the SI said Wednesday.

“We are acquiring a technology company with a focus on cyber security, network communications and other leading-edge technologies key to critical infrastructure protection and optimization, ” said Bill Graham, the SI President and CEO.

Graham said the SI aims to grow its relationships with U.S. government customers through the transaction.

ACS was formerly Telcordia Technologies‘ research and engineering arm prior to Ericsson‘s acquisition of Telcordia.

Telcordia formed Basking Ridge, N.J.-based ACS in January 2012 to address U.S. government concerns after the transaction, the SI said.
