Herndon, Virginia-based Peraton, formed in 2017 and which has made several large government IT contractor acquisitions since, is relocating to a larger corporate headquarters in Reston. Peraton signed a lease at 1875 Explorer Street in Reston Town Center and expects to relocate its corporate offices by September 2022 after construction is completed for the custom-designed space. According to wtop.com, "Peraton has more than 5,000 employees in the D.C. area, and more than 19,000 globally. Peraton was formed in 2017 when Veritas Capital acquired the government IT services business of Harris Corporation. Earlier this year, Veritas acquired the federal IT and mission support division of Northrop Grumman and folded it into Peraton. It also acquired Perspecta this year, the public sector business spun off by DCX Technology in 2018, and added it to Peraton’s operations." As per wtop.com, "Through acquisitions, Peraton now has more than 150 offices across the U.S. It says it is in the middle of a multi-year review of its office footprint. After Veritas acquired the government IT business of Harris Corp, it took several months to come up with a name, a process that is not as easy as it may seem. Peraton is a construct of the prefix “per,” which means thoroughly, and the word “imperative,” reflecting the importance of its customers’ missions, the company said when the name was announced."
