News Image
NIC4 has acquired Knight Sky LLC.

The acquisition will effectively combine the expertise of both companies, enhancing the development and delivery of agile, secure and mission critical connectivity solutions for the collective clients of each organization.

NIC4 will complement the existing Knight Sky managed network services with advanced technologies in the NIC4 MAVERICK VSAT services and will add additional resources and support to Knight Sky’s contracted U.S. Space Force Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) SATCOM Enterprise Management & Control (EM&C) Program.

Since 2003, Knight Sky has established a track record of serving critical mission customers, becoming a full-service satellite network operator and information technology services provider. Its focus has been on the design, installation and operations of mobile communications networks, information technology services, systems integrations and enterprise applications. In addition, Knight Sky is delivering software development solutions to the U.S. Space Force EM&C Program.

For NIC4, the decision to acquire Knight Sky LLC completes a critical part of its mission in enabling clients to operate anywhere. Leveraging Knight Sky’s knowledge and experience, this expanded partnership will only improve the delivery of reliable communication to U.S. government and military clients.

"We're excited to welcome Knight Sky LLC, along with its team, to NIC4," said Chad Gatlin, Chief Executive Officer, NIC4. "We'll be able to create more valuable solutions, combining key capabilities from both sides to enhance the successful design, development and delivery of technology solutions for military, public safety and government agencies. Overall, we’ll be stronger together."
