Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has agreed to acquire Fulcrum IT Services for an undisclosed sum in a move to grow predictive threat analytics and situational awareness offerings for the government sector.

Centreville, Va.-based Fulcrum offers IT and consulting services to intelligence, defense, health care, national security and federal civilian customers.
