Eagan, McCallister Associates, Inc., an SAIC Company

Eagan, McAllister Associates, Inc. (EMA) began its operations in 1984 with one contract; two employees, co-founders Rex Eagan and John McAllister; and one small office near NAS Patuxent River in Lexington Park, Maryland. Through the mid 1980s, EMA provided engineering, management, and logistics support for Defense programs including carrier air traffic control and landing systems (ATC&LS), tactical aircrew combat training systems (TACTS), shipboard datalinks, computer security, and command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I). Through its work associated with these and other Navy programs, EMA quickly earned a distinctive reputation for its top-quality solutions and exceptional customer support. Over time, as information technology (IT) and associated engineering issues and concerns began moving to the forefront in both government and commercial arenas, satisfied clients naturally looked to EMA for creative, high-tech solutions to their evolving IT challenges.
