Our Story

For over two decades, we led teams delivering automated Targeting solutions supporting US-led Coalition operations such as Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, and C2ISR analytics solutions in support of global operations. Fueled by talented Employees dedicated to mission success, the hallmark of these solutions was the fusion and sharing of Operations and Intelligence data from CONUS to the tactical edge, enabling the integration of over 150 Joint, Service, and Coalition legacy and emerging systems. Along the way, we helped build a thriving Defense software company.


Following successive executive roles with both small and large defense integrators, we decided to return to our small company roots. We founded Valencor with the knowledge that incremental automation of today’s industrial age processes is not enough to solve tomorrow’s global security challenges. Valencor is accelerating radical change to meet those challenges, focused on securely integrating, managing, and exploiting data across emerging data-centric security environments.  


We are committed to building a world-class team in which each team member is respected and valued, enabled by the same knowledge management best practices we advise our customers to employ. As C5ISR & Targeting Pathfinders, we are ready to partner with government and industry teammates that share our commitment to the mission.
