This year marks the 60th anniversary since the Sierra Nevada Corporation was founded. Halfway through the intervening timespan, it was taken over by Eren and Fatih Ozmen, who transformed it into one of the Pentagon’s most unusual suppliers–a privately-held, woman-owned business capable of competing with companies many times its size. As the company, which now prefers to call itself SNC, has piled up competitive wins, it has gradually taken on more ambitious projects. Now, it is positioning to win two of the Pentagon’s most important next-generation aircraft efforts–a sensor plane for the Army, a nuclear command post for the Air Force. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
