“This is an exciting moment for Booz Allen, and we are thrilled to continue building upon our partnership with Space Force and the Department of Defense for critical missions aimed at accelerating and maintaining space superiority and driving information to action—no matter the domain,” said Andrea Inserra, executive vice president and leader in Booz Allen’s aerospace business.

The consultancy has a long history of supporting the space sector, including 50 years of multifaceted support for the International Space Station, modernization of NASA’s infrastructure and policies, and engineering and analysis for the Artemis missions.

“This partnership reaffirms Booz Allen’s position as a leader in building and delivering world-class, mission-critical systems engineering, cyber architecture, and remote sensing capabilities to sustain U.S. space superiority,” said Eric Hoffman, vice president and leader in Booz Allen’s space business.

The firm last year won a $622-million contract to provide an array of cybersecurity services to NASA.

Booz Allen recently hired former NASA executive Tom Whitmeyer as an executive advisor in support of its space business.
