When Ronayne spoke with the Dayton Daily News this summer after the announcement of the NOVASTAR contract awards, he said he was minutes away from signing a lease for new office space in Beavercreek as a result of the contract win.
“We have already begun to increase our team of C5I engineers, technical experts and intelligence professionals to be based in the Dayton, Ohio area to support NASIC NOVASTAR,” Pat Moneymaker, president of the company’s Technology and Technical Solutions Sector, said in a new release.
“Epsilon C5I’s new program office in Beavercreek builds on the strong defense ecosystem we have in the Dayton region,” said Julie Sullivan, executive vice president at the Dayton Development Coalition. “Epsilon’s new location allows them to leverage their proximity to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the National Air and Space Intelligence Center as well as Ohio’s skilled cyber workforce. "
San Diego-based Epsilon was one of five winners announced by the Department of Defense this summer, all with a presence in the Dayton area, as winners sharing the NOVASTAR $4.79 billion award, consolidating 20 previous intelligence analysis service contracts with fewer vendors, all serving NASIC at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
The NOVASTAR contract winners were: Altamira Technologies Corp; Epsilon Systems Solutions Inc.; Modern Technology Solutions; Radiance Technologies and Xandar LLC.
