BlueHalo finds its first acquisition

Deal focuses on space electronics

BlueHalo, the defense technology integrator backed by Arlington Capital Partners, has identified its first acquisition under that name and brand to further push on a strategy centered around the transformation of modern warfare.

The latest move by BlueHalo will see it purchase Design and Development Engineering Services Corp., a maker of electronic systems for use on military and national security space platforms. Terms of the deal announced Tuesday were undisclosed.

DDES touts its product line as radiation-hardened and space-qualified with the goal to support missions in austere environments.

Arlington, Virginia-headquartered BlueHalo sees the transaction as expanding its offerings in space-qualified hardware, laser communications systems and directed energy.

BlueHalo launched under its current identity in October 2020, which means DDES represents the acquiring company’s first deal since that unveiling.

CEO Jonathan Moneymaker explained the company’s strategy for organic and acquired growth in a March episode of our Project 38 podcast.
