Parsons said today it has acquired Polaris Alpha from private-equity firm Arlington Capital Partners and will add the company to its federal business unit.

Polaris Alpha was created in late 2016, when Arlington Capital merged EOIR Technologies with Intelligent Software Solutions and PROTEUS Technologies. In 2017, the private-equity firm added Intelesys and Solidyn Solutions. Last month, Polaris Alpha acquired Fourth Dimension Engineering.

Parsons said its acquisition of Polaris Alpha is the latest in its strategic investments in companies “with technologies aligned to evolving threats in the land, sea, air, space, and cyber domains.”

Polaris Alpha, it continued, will bring machine learning, data, video, multi-source analytics and automated reasoning technologies.

Both companies, Parsons said, already work with the intelligence community, the Pentagon, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies.

Polaris Alpha has more than 1,300 employees and offices in Colorado Springs, CO; Aberdeen, MD; Columbia, MD; and Fredericksburg, VA.
