Jun. 19, 2023 – Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, and Aalyria, a new enterprise in advanced networking and communications, announced today that they will join forces to integrate Aalyria’s Spacetime networking technology with Leidos’ global-scale network management and protection solutions for critical government missions.

“Leveraging the capabilities of both organizations, our strategic relationship with Aalyria centers around combining Aalyria’s advanced Spacetime networking technology with our global-scale network management and protection capabilities,” said Chad Haferbier, Leidos vice president of multidomain operations solutions. “Leidos’ proven national security experience, paired with Aalyria's leading-edge technology, will deliver operational advantages to strengthen U.S. and allied national security through joint multi-domain operations (MDO) solutions. We look forward to combining our joint capabilities to provide intrinsic resilience and an open architecture approach.”
“Aalyria and Leidos together solving national security challenges is exactly what the nation needs. Our all-domain network orchestration platform combined with Leidos’ world class, time-tested integration of technology solutions gives America the edge,” said Chris Taylor, CEO of Aalyria. “We’re excited to team with Leidos to strengthen our national security interests. Spacetime can do things that people have long dreamed about but never thought possible. This collaboration with Leidos will help us integrate Spacetime into more systems and solutions, ultimately realizing a complete cJADC2 capability.”
