RTCS technology enables government and civilian agencies to share and access information securely across multiple classified networks at different classification levels. RTCS’ certified and accredited solutions help customers protect sensitive and classified information, while ensuring that the information gets to the correct people in a timely manner.
RTCS relocated recently to its new 45,000-square-foot location in the town of Herndon to accommodate growth, which includes space for an additional 200 employees. Founded in 1994, Trusted Computer Solutions became part of Raytheon in November 2010. RTCS is part of Raytheon’s Intelligence and Information Systems business.
“Fairfax County provides us with the ideal location to serve our government customers while providing employees with access to one of the most dynamic and reliable economies in the country,” Hammersla said. “We are pleased to be supported by such a technology- and business-friendly county and our new facility will support the aggressive growth plans we have for years to come.”
“I am delighted to celebrate the growth of RTCS,” Gordon said. “It is the kind of company that has made Fairfax County the technology capital of the east coast. It takes advantage of, and contributes to, our world-class workforce and quality of life.”
