Tyto Athene acquires Microtel

On April 8, Tyto Athene, LLC, a federal systems integrator of mission-focused digital transformation solutions, announced that it has completed its acquisition of Microtel LLC. Tyto is a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners, a Washington, DC-area private investment firm specializing in government regulated industries.

Tyto is an innovator in Space Domain Awareness and Combat Power with expertise in Space Threat Intelligence Analysis and Modeling and Simulation. The acquisition of Microtel further strengthens Tyto’s longstanding customer relationships and capabilities across the space domain, as the company’s key software development specialties include mission-critical flight software to control robotic spacecraft, rovers, and other onboard flight applications for command, telemetry, and science data processing.

Michael Lustbader, a managing partner at Arlington, said, “For nearly three decades, Microtel has been a proven leader in software development for space programs and this expertise complements our existing space command work. This acquisition underscores Tyto’s commitment to delivering exceptional solutions and expanding its presence in critical markets, including its relationship with NASA. We look forward to supporting Dennis as he drives the integration and advances Tyto’s growth.”

“I am very pleased to welcome Microtel to the Tyto family,” said Dennis Kelly, CEO of Tyto Athene. “Microtel’s impressive team of professionals are hands-on technologists with deep expertise in software development and AI/ML technologies. We look forward to leveraging our combined capabilities to further our growth and bring new innovations to our customer’s mission.”

“Our shared vision of innovation will allow us to explore other mission areas we can support,” said Jerry Hengemihle, CEO of Microtel. “We are excited for our future with Tyto, and we look forward to delivering next-generation solutions that expand our support to NASA and other federal agencies.”
