Herndon, Virginia, May 1, 2017 – Team members from Senators Tim Kaine’s (D-VA) and Mark Warner’s (D-VA) offices toured today a flourishing local communications technology company, Klas Telecom Government, located in Herndon, Virginia. Defense advisors Ryan Colvert (Advisor to Sen. Kaine) and Rosie Heiss (Advisor to Sen. Warner) met with Klas Telecom Government President and CEO David Huisenga, senior executives and a team of nearly thirty engineers, analysts and veteran employees.
Klas Telecom Government, an emerging U.S. company, has quadrupled its revenue and doubled its workforce over the past three years. The company specializes in developing innovative, deployable communications solutions for government and military markets where ruggedization and low size, weight and power (SWaP) are required. Headquartered in Herndon, VA, the company is led by a Navy veteran, David Huisenga. Klas Telecom employs military veterans, engineers and other business personnel within the Herndon, VA; Tampa, FL; Seattle, WA and Fort Bragg, NC areas and serves the U.S. military service branches, various government agencies, joint services, the special operations community and works with many coalition partners
Notably, Klas Telecom’s latest innovation, the Voyager Tactical Data Center (Voyager TDC), deploys an enterprise-grade compute and data storage network, with the highest compute performance per watt and storage per cubic inch available in the tactical market, in a rugged airline carry-on-sized rollaway case. The platform provides major size, weight and power (SWaP) savings and replaces truckloads of equipment with a single case, simplifying transportation, logistics and ultimately reducing the total cost of system ownership for public partners. The new solution also helps with the U.S. government’s latest decrees for data center consolidation and footprint reduction.
With the intensive on-going deliberations on Capitol Hill, Klas Telecom Government’s executives emphasized how the Voyager TDC’s platform bends the taxpayers’ cost curve and addresses clear gaps both in terms of cyber security, data and communications integration, maximizing intelligence and safety for our warfighters.
Huisenga commented on the office visit saying, “We are very honored to be gaining the attention of those who represent Virginia in the Senate. It’s really nice to know that Senators Kaine and Warner are taking interest in local businesses that are creating jobs and serving the government. When I was in the service, it was crucial to have reliable and current technology on which my shipmates and I could depend. I learned first-hand how important it is to have the best communication tools, not only to deter threats and keep us all secure, but also to help assure the safety of everyone onboard. It’s why I feel privileged to be doing what I do today.”
