James Batt is responsible for overall corporate growth at BlueHalo, leading business development, strategy, and research and development investments to expand the company’s space, directed energy, missile defense, and cyber and intelligence capabilities across innovative services, products and solutions.

Since BlueHalo launched in 2020, it has developed hyper-growth strategies and focused on business development and capture efforts to meet mission-critical needs and challenges for national defense and security. Combining the company’s breadth of capabilities and innovative products to take advantage of transformational opportunities has led the company to double-digit growth year-over-year and significant new contract awards, such as the recent 1,400-strong Space Force contract million dollars to provide world-class satellite operations capability.

“Defining our key strategies and keeping all of our growth activities focused on these areas has been critical to our success and momentum,” said Batt. “But the differentiating factor has really been our team and the way they’ve embraced and come together to execute these strategies. We have all embraced this spirit of driving technology innovation and delivering mission transformation, and I am honored to be a part of this team.”
