Our Capabilities

Cyberspace solutions

We are experts in both the technical and administrative aspects of Cybersecurity. We provide services to our customers such as RMF Authorization support, Vulnerability Assessments (ACAS), and system/network design and hardening. We implement successful vulnerability management programs for a wide variety of sustained systems.


We provide training classes to deploying personnel who are learning to operate a mission capability for the first time or as a refresher.  Our intensive 5 week courses train operators mission concepts, system capabilities and how to react in a rapidly changing environment.  Our customers recognize the role training has in mission success and have repeatedly acknowledged our role through accolades and word of mouth.

space control and intelligence

Our company is founded and staffed by career space control and intelligence veterans and experts who bring their operational experience and subject matter expertise to serve our customers.  We sustain multiple space control systems and are working to engineer the next generation of capabilities.  

Test and Evaluation

We consider test and evaluation services to be a critical piece in the development framework for operational capabilities and as such have positioned ourselves to be the foremost test and evaluation experts. We provide Training Systems Requirements Analysis and participate in Joint Test and Evaluations.

systems and sustainment engineering

We currently sustain multiple fielded systems providing a wide range of capabilities in space and cyberspace.  We specialize in the sustainment and upgrade of legacy systems that other companies may find too challenging and have a mature systems engineering process that help our customers discover, design and field new capabilities and architectures.

research, development and rapid prototyping

As a small business, we are keenly interested in a strong research, development and rapid prototyping segment for our company.  As such we have created an atmosphere and company program called the Collaboratory where employees, customers or industry can bring their future-vision or challenges to us to solve.  Our LINKWarden software defined firewall and network defense platform is one of many R&D projects that BESL engineers have created through this program.
