NatSec’s Next Generation

Peraton is a mission-focused partner for tomorrow’s warfighter


Peraton (Booth 1201) debuts as a relatively new name in the geospatial intelligence market, but its heritage dates back more than 100 years—delivering advanced technologies and solutions for customers across the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and civilian agencies. Peraton is a next generation national security company, with its customer mission-focused portfolio aligned on the emerging warfighting domains of space, intelligence, cyber/SIGINT, electronic warfare, and more.

GEOINT 2018 is one of the first major customer events for the business since it rebranded from Harris Corporation Government Services in July 2017 after being acquired by Veritas Capital earlier that year.

According to chief communications officer Matt McQueen, Peraton is deliberately moving away from the typical “yard sale” approach often displayed at industry trade shows, instead electing to showcase targeted, mission-focused customer demonstrations through a series of augmented reality and touch screen applications, providing a better and more realistic user experience for customers and Symposium attendees.

“Peraton’s approach is fundamentally different,” McQueen said. “We’ve designed a company that’s anticipatory of customer mission demands, with an agile, responsive, and trusted infrastructure to deliver the right team and technologies to solve our customers’ most daunting challenges.”
