Booz Allen Hamilton has launched a new facility in California, Maryland, to provide specialized engineering solutions for the US Department of Defense.
The Pax River Mission Systems Integration Facility (MSIF) is a multi-configurable hub with rapid production, prototyping, and testing capabilities that will address the US military’s dynamic and future needs.
The 20,000-square-foot (1,860 square meters) site is constructed 60 miles (97 kilometers) south of Washington, DC, and minutes away from the US Naval Air Station.
It has software and hardware integration laboratories, an anechoic chamber, a high bay garage, and warehousing spaces.
“Our new facility is an answer and solution to the Department of Defense’s call to create and field technical capabilities at speed and scale, rapidly accelerating readiness and the deployment of new technology into the field,” Booz Allen Global Defense President Judi Dotson explained.
“Our goal is to enable our clients to be at the forefront of meeting mission demands, with the capability and capacity to support quick-turn integration needs across all services—and the MSIF will do just that.”
Enhancing Local Industry
Furthermore, MSIF will be leveraged to partner with local industries to support additional projects in the Naval Air Systems Command, the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division in Southern Maryland, and the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Virginia.
“Our investment in the MSIF builds upon more than 40 years in Southern Maryland with a continued commitment to regional growth and positive community impact while enabling a continuation of services to design and deploy critical solutions to meet our clients’ complex mission needs,” Booz Allen Naval Air and Sea Warfare Center Senior Vice President Dottie Simeona stated.
“We are thrilled to officially open our latest facility, which will be a critical component of our expanding engineering ecosystem and will provide a space for Booz Allen’s robust bench of on-hand mission experts to rapidly engineer, integrate, and test solutions with the synergy of emerging technology and prototyping.”
