FAIRFAX, Va., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Federal Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a leading provider of information technology; engineering and intelligence analytic services; to agencies in the intelligence, defense, homeland security, and cyber domains, announced Friday that it has completed its acquisition of  ATS Corporation (ATSC), a leading information technology company delivering innovative technology solutions to government and commercial organizations.

With the completion of the acquisition, Salient announces the addition of a new company business unit, Civilian Mission Critical Solutions and the establishment of the Agile Software Center of Excellence as means of bringing the expertise it has developed in the defense, homeland, intelligence, and cyber domains to the Federal civilian market segment. Salient is also establishing a business unit focusing on System and Software Engineering Solutions to leverage the additional capabilities ATSC brings for agency-wide IT infrastructure, cloud computing, and large scale systems integration.

"Salient's acquisition of ATSC is an important waypoint in the company's strategy of very carefully targeting high-growth areas in the public sector market," says Brad Antle, CEO of Salient. "It complements Salient's strong position in the defense, homeland, and intelligence sectors with existing business and opportunities in civilian agencies."

Salient's acquisition of ATSC will allow the company to provide a broader range of capabilities to more customers. Together the organizations will work to create cross-selling opportunities, such as software and system development and systems integration, capabilities valued by both Salient's and ATSC's customer bases.

With an excellent staff of highly skilled professionals, the company now adds expertise in case management, federal financial systems, supply chain management, border/port security, and health information systems to Salient's portfolio of services. It also expands Salient's portfolio of tools and technologies with assets such as a Rational toolset, a financial services platform, and a solution for blue force tracking and personnel incident management.
