Products, Services and Solutions
Knight Sky's focus is on design, installation and operations of mobile communications networks, information technology services, systems integrations and enterprise applications. We support our customers through every step of the project lifecycle: conceptual design and architecture, installation and configuration, and operations and maintenance. Our services typically start with a detailed needs assessment from which we develop an accurate requirements document. We then develop a best value strategy and systems solution from this firm requirements foundation. Our engineering and management team work side-by-side with our customers through the details and intricacies of the enterprise architecture and design. We ensure that all applicable international, commercial, and government policies and guidelines are met, that all certifications and licenses are properly completed and filed and successfully navigate the complex arena of domestic and international transmission regulations and government accreditation processes.
Leveraging our in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience with government and military customers, we have developed a family of managed information technology services and products which are secure, reliable and interoperable, in support of our customer's mission-critical communications needs. As network architects and technical solution providers, we pride ourselves on being the customer's advocate for the highest Return on Investment (ROI) solution and are dedicated to serving as a trusted partner in achieving our customer's goals and initiatives. Agnostic to any manufacturer or technology and with a continual focus on emerging technologies and potential efficiencies to be gained, we select the optimum network architecture, equipment and tools to support the unique connectivity requirements and business needs of our customers. To ensure program and project success, we utilize a program management lifecycle approach based on our extensive experience, derived from the best practices and guidelines of the industry and incorporating highly flexible tools and techniques.
