For more than 60 years, ARCTOS scientists, engineers, and program managers have fueled innovation in propulsion and flight, materials and manufacturing, aerospace sustainment, launch and flight safety, and expeditionary airbase technologies for the U.S. Department of Defense, other federal agencies, and the aerospace industry. 

Our broad experience, deep domain expertise, intimate customer mission understanding, and team-oriented approach make all the difference in complex, high-stakes missions.

The ARCTOS Story

Bringing together some of the industry’s best and brightest to push the edge of what’s possible.

Leaders in government and industry have long recognized that the best innovation often comes from smaller, nimble firms with top specialty talent. While innovative, such firms often reach a ceiling in their ability to transition cutting-edge technologies into real capabilities with lasting mission impact. Challenges include insufficient resources and limited cross-functional expertise to transition research into results.

With this backdrop, a select few R&D firms joined forces in 2019 to work together as one company — and together launched ARCTOS Technology Solutions. Heritage research and engineering teams with decades of deep domain experience are now able to reach across and work together to solve the hardest problems and deliver real mission capabilities, while still operating with the mindset and processes of a small to medium-sized firm, fueled by a culture of disciplined hustle, fresh thinking, teamwork, and customer focus.

Today, ARCTOS stands as a premiere applied R&D firm with the agility to drive innovation coupled with the resources to make true impact. With offices and personnel across the United States, our teams are exploring new technologies, performing high-end technical services, and delivering market-ready product solutions for aerospace and defense.

And the best is yet to come!
