BEDFORD — Bedford defense contractor EMC Analytical Services (EMCAS) is acquiring EMC Management Concepts, a company based in Sterling, Va., EMCAS announced Monday. Financial terms of the all-cash, all-stock deal were not disclosed.
The combined company, which will include 19 employees, plans to offer electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) and spectrum supportability (SS) engineering consulting solutions to the government and commercial sectors, EMCAS said.
E3 testing tests the ability of a system to operate in its intended electromagnetic environment. Spectrum supportability ensures the necessary frequencies and bandwidth are available to military systems in order to maintain effective interoperability, according to Defense Acquisition University, an industry trade group.
EMC Management Concepts, founded in 2002, offers services that include resolving electromagnetic interference issues in military systems, according to a release.
EMCAS, founded in 2008, provides system level technical support and solutions in the E3 arena, the company said. It currently supports military and commercial organizations in New Hampshire; Massachusetts; Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Virginia; and South Carolina.
EMCAS will acquire EMC Management Concepts effective Jan. 1. The combined business will operate under the EMCAS brand.
“EMCAS has worked closely with EMC Management Services for several years due to the parallel nature of our respective disciplines,” said Anthony Keys, president of EMCAS, in a statement. “The merger of the two firms will allow EMCAS to expand our client base and offer a more complete E3 and SS range of services to our existing and future clients.”
