Orlando, Fla. (February 23, 2022) Two years after announcing their expansion into Orlando via the UCF Business Incubation Program’s Soft Landing division, Command Post Technologies is expanding and leaving the program.

The catalyst was being named as one of the 15 companies included as part of the 10-year, $2.4 billion National Cyber Range Complex Lot 2 contract, something Command Post Technologies has been targeting since 2017 and prior to opening an office at the Research Park Incubator in 2020.

“The Soft Landing program worked exactly as we thought it would, even with the delays we experienced during COVID,” says Scott Bisciotti, president & CEO, Command Post Technologies. “It gave us a solid foundation in Central Florida and allowed us to be competitive in this contract, which will be a major boost to our company and Central Florida.”

Command Post Technologies is based in Virginia, but much of the work for the National Cyber Range Lot 2 Contract will be performed in the Orlando location.

The company plans to move into the 5,000-square-foot location across from the Partnership V building located at 12001 Research Pkwy, Suite 252, Orlando FL 32826 in April.

The company believes it will hire more than a dozen people to work on this contract, including transferring a senior level executive to Orlando. The jobs will be focused on high-end specialized network and cyber engineering services with a salary range from $75,000 to $150,000.

“We’re very proud of what Command Post Technologies has been able to accomplish while being a part of the incubation system and it showcases how much of an asset the Soft Landing program can help diversify our economy,” says Carol Ann Dykes Logue, director, Innovation Districts Programs & Operations, University of Central Florida.

Command Post Technologies was founded in 2008 as a service-disabled veteran-owned business, specializing in Cyber Test & Evaluation, Cyber Event Operations and Planning, Joint Test & Evaluation (JT&E), Joint Wargaming and Concept Development, along with Training & Exercise Support.

In 2013, the company was named one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the country by Inc. Magazine and currently has 90 employees in locations across 10 states.
