HII Forms Defense and Federal Solutions Business Group
Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) Technical Solutions division on Tuesday announced changes to the organization and alignment of its business groups following an organizational review and series of strategic acquisitions and major contract awards.
The previous Fleet Support group and Mission Driven Innovative Solutions (MDIS) group were combined to form the Defense and Federal Solutions group, to be led by Garry Schwartz, former president of MDIS.
The three Technical Solutions business groups are now:
Defense and Federal Solutions, focused on solving national security challenges for the Department of Defense, the intelligence community, federal civilian agencies and commercial customers around the globe. The group’s expertise includes maritime fleet sustainment; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; cyber operations; secure enterprise information technology engineering and operations; advanced modeling, simulation and training; and logistics management.
Unmanned Systems, creating advanced unmanned maritime solutions for defense, marine research and commercial applications. Serving customers in more than 30 countries, Unmanned Systems provides design, autonomy, manufacturing, testing, operations and sustainment of unmanned systems, including unmanned underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vessels.
Nuclear and Environmental Services, supporting the national security mission of the Department of Energy through the management and operation of national nuclear laboratories, as well as environmental remediation at legacy cleanup sites. Through decades of experience in safe nuclear operations, the group is also postured to serve the growing commercial nuclear power plant decommissioning market.
“We are incredibly excited about what we have accomplished and what we plan to deliver to our customers going forward,” Schwartz said. “We have some of the most talented engineers, scientists, analysts and technicians in the world working on helping our government solve some of its most important challenges. We look forward to leading the charge in changing how innovative solutions are provided to our government customers, particularly in the ISR and military simulation and training markets, while continuing to build on the legacy of over a century of cutting-edge naval shipbuilding and decades of fleet sustainment excellence.”
