A Woman-Owned Small Disadvantaged Business    

Defense System Engineering, Integration & Test


KODA was founded on six decades of weapon system development experience – from hands-on engineering to executive leadership. We have been the customer – directly responsible for solving complex problems and developing highly technical products, and we delivered time after time. From designing radar systems to leading large-scale flight tests to managing international programs, we have a unique understanding of customer needs, deep domain expertise and proven technical skills. Our senior government decision-maker perspective, understanding of government organizations and experience integrating large multi-disciplinary teams make us distinctly qualified in our field.
