Camber is more than happy to get its hands dirty when it comes to the armed services. The company primarily serves the US military with a wide range of information technology and training services. It specializes in consulting, project management, systems integration, training, and network engineering, and it operates divisions that serve aerospace and national security clients. In addition to federal agencies, the company's client list includes civilian agencies, local and state governments, and other military contractors and subcontractors. Camber was founded in 1990.
Camber operates from more than 100 locations worldwide. It serves both the US federal government and commercial customers, as well as customers in some 25 countries in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Mergers and Acquisitions
In late 2012 Camber acquired Washington, DC-based Novonics Corporation. With Novonics' tactical systems software and simulation capability, the purchase builds upon Camber's existing foundation of simulation-based training, network test and evaluation, command and control, and information management. Demand for more effective simulation-based training and tools is increasing even as military budgets are being cut.
In 2011 Camber acquired the Defense Security and Systems Solutions (DS3) subsidiary of EADS North America, a provider of cyber security IT, information assurance, and satellite communications services for defense customers. The purchase expanded Camber's cyber security support and training offerings within its National Security division and added a suite of network simulators and emulation software. The acquisition effectively bolstered its services to Camber's US Air Force, US Navy, US Strategic Command, and other core federal clients.
