Everyone likes to talk about how big the homeland security technology market is and what a fantastic opportunity it represents.
What they don’t mention is that a great product is no guarantee of success. Getting in front of the right decision makers, with the right message is always a challenge. And just because someone at DHS, or an airport, or an airline loves your solution doesn’t mean they will buy it.
Requirements are complex. Procurement cycles can take years. Competition is fierce.

We are experts in marketing, business development, government relations, and security operations.
