Since 2006, Quintron has supported the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) with its communications system on Vandenberg AFB, CA. The first system was a TDM based system but in 2017 Quintron was awarded the contract to upgrade that facility with it VoIP system. As part of that upgrade the number of operator positions was almost double in preparation to supported larger missions.
The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is a research, development, and acquisition agency within the Department of Defense and its workforce includes government civilians, military service members, and contractor personnel in multiple locations across the United States.
As we develop, test, and field an integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), the MDA works closely with the combatant commands (e.g. Pacific Command, Northern Command, etc.) who will rely on the system to protect the United States, our forward deployed forces, and our friends and allies from hostile ballistic missile attack. We work with the combatant commanders to ensure that we develop a robust BMDS technology and development program to address the challenges of an evolving threat. They are also steadily increasing our international cooperation by supporting mutual security interests in missile defense.
