BlueHalo Acquires Base2 Engineering and Fortego

BlueHalo, an Arlington, Va.-based provider of advanced engineering solutions and technology to the national security community, completed the acquisitions of Base2 LLC and Fortego LLC.

Co-founded by Edward Wright and Michael Curry, Base2 specializes in the design and development of cyber solutions across the domains of Computer Network Operations (“CNO”), Signals Intelligence (“SIGINT”), and Quick Reaction Capability (“QRC”).

Co-founded by Chad Price and Eric Rothenberger, Fortego has proven capabilities in advanced SIGINT and cyber operations solutions, with end-to-end solutions in cyber analytics, vulnerability research, and CNO engineering.

The two companies have highly complementary capabilities that, together with BlueHalo, will enable the company to address the most complex cyber programs in the national security community.

BlueHalo’s accelerated growth strategy will capitalize on three new operational facilities with a fourth under construction, and drive additional investments to increase growth in Base2’s and Fortego’s core markets, as well as to expand its cyber and SIGINT offerings across its portfolio of solutions addressing manned and unmanned aircraft, missile defense, and space assets on orbit.

Led by Jonathan Moneymaker, CEO, BlueHalo is purpose-built to provide capabilities in the domains of Space Superiority and Directed Energy, Missile Defense and C4ISR, and Cyber and Intelligence. The company focuses on engineering to develop, transition, and field next generation capabilities to solve the most complex challenges of our customers’ critical missions and reestablish our national security posture in the near-peer contested arena. 

BlueHalo expects to end 2020 with over $250 million in revenue and nearly 900 employees located across 11 states that are strategically positioned near major Intelligence and DoD organizations.
