In July 2021, HII entered into a $1.65 billion cash deal to acquire Alion Science and Technology from Veritas Capital as part of a push to expand its technical capabilities and portfolio of national security platforms.
The Newport News, Va.-based shipbuilding company expected the deal to help it expand its capabilities in multi-domain distributed operations to meet future U.S. Navy readiness and modernization priorities and of the Ministry of Defence.
“The combination of Alion and our Technical Solutions business represents a significant value creation opportunity that expands our capabilities and our customers’ access to our target markets,” said Green.
“Alion’s experienced team and the highly complementary solutions and products they offer are in line with the strategic vision we have articulated for the Technical Solutions business, and we are excited about the significant growth potential this combination represents. .
HII completed the acquisition of Alion one month after the first announcement of the transaction. Alion, which was integrated into Technical Solutions, focused on providing research and development and engineering support in the areas of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, cyber, data analysis and military training and simulation, among others, for the intelligence community and DOD clients.
At that time, the company had over 3,200 employees, over 80% of whom held security clearances, over $5 billion in estimated contract value, and $3 billion in arrears.
“Alion is a perfect complement to our existing capabilities in technology-driven defense and federal solutions,” Green said at the time.
He added that the products and services of the acquired company align with the strategic direction of HII’s government business.
In August 2021, HII announced a series of the relocation of managers and the formation of four new business groups within its Technical Solutions business after completing the purchase of Alion. These four groups are Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; live, virtual and constructive solutions; cyber and electronic warfare; sustainment of the fleet.
Past leaders of Alion Todd Borkey and Chris Bishop joined the HII Technical Solutions division as Chief Technology Officer and Chief Growth Officer, respectively. Chris Soonformerly SVP and Chief Information Officer at Alion, was named CIO of the HII division.
Green said the leadership appointments will help the division accelerate its delivery of national security services to customers and boost its growth efforts.
“These professionals are the best and the brightest in their respective fields and functions. I am convinced that with the rest of the Technical solutions leaders and teams – and the unparalleled capabilities we bring to our customers – we will accelerate national security solutions and the growth and success of our division,” he noted.
Early 2021, PMC Capital bought Houston-based UniversalPegasus Internationala provider of engineering design and project management services to the energy sector, of HII.
“We are happy to have reached this agreement,” said Green. “This will allow UPI to continue to thrive, ensuring the company remains at the forefront of innovation and customer service in the future.”
HII started calendar year 2021 with the acquisition of the autonomy business of Spatial Integrated Systems for an undisclosed sum as part of efforts to further expand its unmanned systems capabilities.
“We are delighted to welcome the SIS autonomy corporate employees to the HII family,” Green said. “2020 has been an important year for HII in the unmanned systems industry, and this acquisition is the perfect complement to our existing portfolio and strategic partnerships.”
At a conference in August, Green said that HII sees the market for unmanned underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vehicles as a “high growth area.”
“We are aligned with the Navy’s idea that unmanned vehicles are going to be an important component of the future fleet,” Green said. “We thought about the maintenance of these vehicles. … There’s a long train of logistics and sustainment that goes along with that that we have to think about.
Green has served in this role since 2016 with oversight of the shipbuilder’s national security platforms across information technology, C5ISR support, unmanned systems and logistics support and fleet maintenance and modernization, among other areas.
Prior to HII, he worked at Celanese, Wells Fargo Securities and Eaton’s. The former US Navy nuclear submarine officer is in his second term on the board of directors of the Professional Services Council.
