Camber Corporation is a defense contractor headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama. It was acquired by Huntington Ingalls Industries on December 2, 2016 and is in the process of being reorganized as a division within that company. Once that reorganization is complete, Camber Corporation will cease to exist.

Camber was founded as a Small Business Administration (SBA) 8a company in 1990. Within five years, the company was named in Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest growing companies in the United States, specializing in: Aviation Sensors and Simulations; Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) research and development; training and logistical support; project management; training support; and information technology support for a variety of U.S. Government, state and local government, and private sector entities, but primarily concentrating on the U.S. Department of Defense. Camber graduated from its SBA 8(a) status in 1998.[1]

The company continued to evolve, and while it continued to remain headquatered in Alabama, it expanded to include a major corporate presence in the Washington, DC / National Capital Region and in dozen of other metropolitan areas and communities across the United States and overseas hosting major U.S. military and U.S. Department of Homeland Security activities and installations. By the beginning of the 21st century, Camber Corporation had developed a diverse corporate portfolio in Cyber, Intelligence, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Engineering, Technology and Government Services Support, with specialties in agile software engineering, information technology, data collection and analysis, counter-narcotics analysis, geospatial intelligence, military training and readiness support and analysis, and counter-terrorism support and analysis. As of December 2016, Camber employed approximately 1,700 professionals in over 100 locations in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, and Asia while concurrently being assessed as ISO 9001:2008, ISO 20000, and CMMI-ML3 company.

Camber Corporation has personnel onsite at 100 locations in both the United States and including various countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa, delivering daily interface on technical, programmatic, and operations issues. Its support aligns with the operational interests of every Unified Combatant Command in the U.S. Department of Defense; more than 150 Army, Air Force,[2] Navy and Marine Corps[3] programs; the National Guard Bureau and National Guard headquarters in every state, commonwealth, territory and the District of Columbia; and more than 25 North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or coalition countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

With particular strengths in cyber operations, systems engineering support, logistics management, and business and program support operations, Camber Corporation was an early provider of cyber simulations and has pioneered simulation-based acquisition efforts through endeavors such as the U.S. Army’s Simulation and Modeling for Acquisition, Requirements, and Training (SMART) initiative.

New Mountain Capital acquired Camber December 1, 2008. On December 2, 2016, New Mountain Capital sold Camber Corporation to Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII). As part of its acquisition, HII will reorganize Camber's assets and personnel into a new division called HII Technical Solutions.[4]
