Peraton has been confirmed as the new name of the former Harris Corporation Government Services business, which was acquired by Veritas Capital earlier this year, the Herndon, VA-based company announced July 28.
According to the company, Peraton is based on the idea that the operations the company supports are essential to national security. The name is a construct of the prefix “per,” which means “thoroughly,” and the word “imperative,” reflecting the importance of our customers’ missions.
The company responds to rapidly evolving challenges in the national security market with innovative solutions. Peraton experts, scientists, and engineers are entrusted to partner with government customers to overcome critical challenges and deliver high-quality results in Space, Intelligence, Cyber/SIGINT, Homeland Security, Defense, and Communications markets.
“The name Peraton represents a shared mission to protect and promote freedom around the world,” said Stu Shea, Peraton CEO. “This company serves as a disruptive force to traditional integrators in the national security market by consistently delivering groundbreaking solutions. We challenge the status quo, embrace change, and solve problems through innovation, agility, and creative thinking.”
Veritas Capital acquired the Government Services business from Harris Corporation in April 2017. Peraton has been operating as MHVC Acquisition Corporation since the sale closed.
