Arcfield launched as the new company name of what was previously CTFV Acquisition Corp. which comprised Peraton’s divested Systems Engineering, Integration, and Support Services (SES) Business. Arcfield builds on a five-decade legacy of serving the defense and intelligence communities, providing some of the most sophisticated solutions to our nation and allies’ most critical Space, C5ISR, and Cybersecurity missions.
The company appointed Kevin Kelly as CEO and Chairman who will focus on driving growth through innovation. Kelly brings 30 years of management and technology experience in the defense and intelligence markets. Prior to Arcfield, Kelly served as president of CACI International’s National Security and Innovations Solutions, where he reorganized its high-tech business with the creation of the national security and innovative solutions sector, a $2.1B business focused on inventing, developing, and delivering advanced solutions to some leading C5ISR and counter-UAV national programs. Prior to that, Kelly served at LGS Innovations for over 22 years in several roles including chief strategy officer, chief operations officer, and eventually CEO. While CEO, he led the sale of LGS to a private equity partner in 2014 and eventually CACI in 2019. Prior to LGS, he served in senior positions within General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems and Lockheed Martin.
“Technology will continue to advance, and at the same time the U.S. and our allies’ emerging adversaries will find ways to use those advances against us, or attempt to achieve space and cyber superiority,” said Kelly. “Arcfield is a valuable partner to the growing commercial space market seeking to provide solutions to the National Security missions. For example, our team is evaluating technology investments to address threats posed by hypersonic missiles and anti-satellite weaponry and to provide solutions that enable navigation in a contested space environment and performing on-orbit mission processing and dissemination of critical data.”
Two important sectors for Arcfield – Space and Intelligence and Defense and Federal Civilian – focus on what is necessary to ensure mission success when facing the future threats posed by our adversaries. With this focus, Arcfield supports Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency mission that secures and monitors Federal, State, and Local Government computer networks in search of malware for which it provides vulnerability management services and solutions.
Arcfield continues CTFV’s nearly 40-year partnership with the Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Air Force, supporting Canada’s CF-18 fighter fleet by optimizing program performance in mission critical environments. Arcfield also maintains its history of providing Test & Evaluation support for Conventional Prompt Strike Programs, including the Navy Strategic Systems Program to assist in solving their most complex T&E challenges.
