Nonprofit science and technology organization Noblis has purchased a Federal Aviation Administration-focused business unit from Exelis (NYSE: XLS) for an undisclosed sum.
Exelis employees working on the communications information and network programs portion of the FAA’s Enterprise Communications Support Services contract joined Noblis on Feb. 10, Noblis said Tuesday.
“The FAA is, and will continue to be, a core customer for Exelis and we look forward to new opportunities to partner to meet the demands of today’s complex, dynamic, and challenging aviation transportation environment, ” said David Fastabend, vice president of Exelis’ advanced information systems business.
Noblis has worked as a prime contractor on ECSS since 2011 and works with the agency to manage programs, operations, finances and information systems.
Amr ElSawy, Noblis president and CEO, said his organization intends for the new employees to help the FAA achieve innovation and business transformation through ECSS.
Some of Noblis’ other federal customers include the departments of Defense and Homeland Security, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Social Security Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
