Research is this company's middle name. No, really. Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) provides computer-based systems development, engineering, management, and logistics support services to the US government and its contractors, state and local agencies, and corporate customers. Most of its business comes from various agencies within the Department of Defense, including the US Air Force, Army, and Navy. Subsidiary Kadix Systems provides consulting services for defense and homeland security agencies. DRC discontinued its Metrigraphics division at the end of 2009 and sold it off in 2010.
DRC had been trying to sell the assets related to the Metrigraphics division, which produced precision components for commercial manufacturing customers in the computing, telecom, and medical markets. The division only represented a small percentage of DRC's sales (just 2% in 2008).
DRC's revenue stream has remained relatively stable over the past few years, but the company is still susceptible to changes in fiscal policy or budget cuts, especially as they pertain to the Department of Defense.
Owning 25 locations throughout the US, DRC was established in 1955 by five engineers from MIT.
