Tetra Tech Supports Complex IT Systems throughout the DoD and Federal Government

Tetra Tech has expertise in C4I that enables support to complex DoD systems
Scott Penland, a program operations manager in the Tetra Tech Federal IT Group, discusses Tetra Tech’s blend of technical and operational expertise in command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) that enables support to complex Department of Defense (DoD) systems.

Tetra Tech’s Federal IT Group currently supports multiple C4I systems across combatant commands and provides support to critical Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) navigation systems throughout the United States. We combine our Leading with Science® approach with technical and operational expertise to support complex U.S. federal government and DoD systems to achieve operational objectives. A key component of our approach is helping to protect the system and important data against evolving cybersecurity threats in an increasingly connected world.

Protection of critical information and continuous, reliable capability is required to operate, maintain, and continue to improve these systems to support our clients’ missions and objectives. The systems and information also must be protected against real and emerging internal and external threats while ensuring the delivery and integrity of the information to intended stakeholders. Tetra Tech cybersecurity experts have experience implementing the Risk Management Framework across multiple stakeholders and environments, providing innovative methods and continuous improvement to support robust protection of critical DoD and federal information systems.

Maintaining near 100 percent availability while incorporating multiple initiatives and upgrades is challenging in today’s increasingly complex and connected information technology (IT) environment. Our experts evaluate systems, identify industry trends, and provide opportunities for continual service improvement in DoD and federal IT capabilities supporting aircraft navigation, situational awareness, joint targeting, and secure interoperability across multiple classified domains. As bad actors develop new technologies and expose cybersecurity vulnerabilities, programs must be able to agilely respond to and mitigate emerging threats.

We combine our team’s deep subject matter expertise with our Tetra Tech Delta suite of technologies and agile methodologies to provide tailored solutions to our DoD and federal clients supporting critical IT systems and operational capabilities.
