With a storied heritage that began in 1962 as The Analytical Sciences Corporation, TASC started out providing modeling, simulation, analysis, and evaluation of integrated navigation and guidance systems to the U.S. government.
Throughout this period to today, the company went through many acquisitions, as part of Northrop Grumman Information Technology and beyond.

Today, TASC remains on the cutting edge of innovation with the recent opening of its state-of-the-art cybersecurity laboratory, as well as a 70-person training center for TASC experts to earn professional certifications and develop next-generation cybersecurity solutions.
In addition, its Global Situational Awareness Toolkit (GSAT) provides a real-world solution for the space debris issue that is challenging the U.S. and international governments. This system offers a number of solutions for protecting assets in space through collision avoidance and other situational awareness services.
TASC has also won significant contracts in 2013; where many contractors are faced with declines in their overall deal capture efforts. For example, The U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) awarded the company a $40.5 million contract to provide cost-estimating services.
The company also received the Department of Defense Patriot Award for its support of Army reservist Christian Kachel, a TASC project manager deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq while working at TASC.
Furthermore, TASC has a deep philanthropic focus that is steeped in the company’s DNA.
The company recently donated $22,000 to Building Homes for Heroes. The funds will go to renovate the Texas home of Army Specialist Andrew Toppin and his family. Specialist Toppin was severely wounded while serving in Iraq and received a Purple Heart and numerous other honors.
For developing innovations that help the government better protect and serve its citizens, as well as for its laudable philanthropic efforts, we are proud to announce that TASC is this week’s “Winning Contractor.” Stay tuned for more posts about contractors proving to be nimble in the face of challenging times in our new “Winning Contractor” series.
