Defense and intelligence

Delivering mission-critical results in complex environments

Defense agencies must provide secure, timely information to large groups of people often in hostile environments to protect national security at home and abroad. They require reliable information and increasingly interoperable solutions to support multi-national operations. They also maintain and improve mission-critical systems in the face of budget pressures and cyber threats.

For more than 36 years, CGI has helped our military and intelligence clients deliver large-scale, complex programs across logistics, operations, communications, intelligence, systems engineering, military health, training, simulation and infrastructure.

Our long-standing client relationships in the United States, Canada and Europe—and the many former senior military and intelligence personnel working at CGI—give us insight to help clients achieve their goals with innovative technology and best practices.

CGI has earned a reputation for solving technically complex challenges in biometrics (where we also have our own intellectual property), cyber security, electronic warfare, C4ISR, secure hosting, cloud computing and systems integration. We are also advancing the concept of Information Enabled Capability (IEC) where the focus is on delivering the information required to support military capability.
