The move further positions Jacobs as a leader in high-value Government Services, and allows Jacobs’ Aerospace, Technology and Nuclear (ATN) business to further advance its strategy of delivering innovative and unique mission-oriented solutions for highly technical and high-consequence government priorities.

The integration of KeyW with Jacob’s ATN business expands its advanced engineering and technology solutions in intelligence, cyber and counterterrorism.
