"We bring the highly skilled, analytically agile workforce NASIC needs to achieve its vision for the next decade and to lay the technology foundation necessary to solve global security challenges deep into the 21st century."

Xandar will provide agile and innovative resource capabilities supporting technical analysis in the intelligence community, turning innovation into intelligence products, and constantly improving productivity in technical analysis product generation.

"Xandar is the natural alignment of NASK and KBR with a demonstrated, seamless ability to work together to advance the NASIC mission.
