KEYW Opens Dayton, Ohio Office to Support Air Force Expansion

HANOVER, Md., June 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW) announces the opening of an office in Dayton, Ohio and the appointment of Mr. George Dalton as Director of Dayton Operations to support Air Force customers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB). These customers include the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC).

Len Moodispaw, Chairman and CEO, stated, "Our customers consistently recognize KEYW for our ability to develop and quickly transition novel solutions for the most critical and challenging ISR missions. Now, with the opening of our Dayton office, we will be able to work hand-in-hand with the Air Force to transition these capabilities into long-term acquisition programs."

Our support to the Air Force includes innovative hardware, software, and algorithms for radar, SIGINT, and Cyber systems that operate in contested environments, including more efficient data compression, longer standoff ranges, automated/assisted target recognition, and new software-defined sensor systems. For example, the Air Force just awarded a $10M, 4-year contract to KEYW and its teammates for the Contested Environment RF Exploitation and Research (CERFER) program.

As Director of Dayton Operations, Mr. Dalton will lead these technology transition activities using 30 years of combined systems engineering and management experience. Mr. Dalton brings 23 years of active duty experience in the Air Force, leading sophisticated engineering programs for air and space systems. Most recently, Mr. Dalton was the Director of Engineering for the Angel Fire and Blue Devil ISR systems for Leidos (formerly SAIC), where he oversaw both daily operations and the transition of new capabilities into the field.
