Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has announced the expansion of its Fayetteville presence with the opening of its new Joint Tech Acceleration Facility developed to create and field operationally relevant capabilities for the U.S. military and its warfighters. This investment reaffirms Booz Allen’s focus on applying innovation at the intersection of mission and technology.
Booz Allen’s Joint Tech Acceleration Facility is a modular, nearly 8,000-square-foot facility located in Fayetteville, NC, just minutes from Fort Liberty. It provides an ecosystem of resources and controlled collaboration spaces that enable the rapid adoption of proven solutions into existing command architectures and networks. With a modular floorplan, single or multiple teams have the flexibility to work collaboratively to identify, prototype, test, and deploy capabilities, reducing costs and time on on-site installations. Booz Allen will continue to provide innovative technical support to defense, federal civilian, and national security clients in artificial intelligence, data science, software development, systems integration, engineering, and cybersecurity.
“Over the last 15 years, Booz Allen has been dedicated to the Fort Liberty area through multiple programs, projects and continued investments. Starting with only a handful of employees in the area and having grown to more than 600 across the region, we remain committed to the Fayetteville community and are excited to expand our operations to support the needs of the mission and warfighters,” said Annette Redman, an executive vice president at Booz Allen based in Fayetteville in a press release. "This latest facility will help to answer the DOD’s call to accelerate the delivery and fielding of new capabilities at speed and scale to meet warfighter’s dynamic and evolving needs.”
“Booz Allen is a valued member of our local technology-driven economy. They recognize our unique talent pipeline, fueled by more than 7,000 skilled veterans transitioning out of active duty each year, who are seeking rewarding careers and want to call Fayetteville and Cumberland County home,” said Robert Van Geons, President and CEO of the Fayetteville Cumberland Economic Development Corporation (FCEDC) in a press release.
In addition to careers for its workforce, Booz Allen provides funding, assistance, and technology expertise to a variety of local organizations supporting veterans and military families, STEM education, and environmental stewardship. Booz Allen is providing a kick-off grant for a STEAM Innovation Lab to be housed at the Airborne and Special Operations Museum in downtown Fayetteville. The STEAM Innovation Lab will educate students about the development and deployment of equipment, planning, and preparation of today’s Airborne and Special Operations Soldiers. Leading military, technology, and equipment businesses will help with developing primary, middle, and high school components for the Lab.
“The dynamic STEAM Innovation Lab will foster active learning and provide hands-on, problem-solving activities using military equipment and technology,” said Renee Lane, Executive Director of the Airborne and Special Operations Museum Foundation in a press release. “This is an exciting new opportunity for Museum visitors, especially school-age attendees and we are grateful for Booz Allen’s generous support.”
