CHICAGO, April 25 (UPI) -- Six3 Systems Inc. of Virginia is continuing to strengthen its portfolio of services to the U.S. defense and intelligence communities through a new acquisition.

The company, owned by Chicago private equity firm GTRC, has taken over Ticom Geomatics Inc. of Texas, adding complementary geolocation and communications intelligence to its existing intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance offerings.

No details were disclosed in regard to the financial terms of the acquisition but Six3 Systems said it was the fourth acquisition it has made since the company was started in 2009.

"TGI's expertise in tactical, precision geolocation and COMINT is a perfect complement to our strong capabilities in the National ISR/SIGINT and cyber market," said Robert Coleman, president and chief executive officer of Six3 Systems.

"Together we will be able to offer our customers comprehensive solutions and services that span from national through tactical ISR needs and address all elements of the Multi-INT market.

"This is increasingly important as the national security community expands its reliance on real-time sensor data to support activity-based intelligence requirements."
