Our Challenge

Pacstar is a leading developer and supplier of advanced, interoperable tactical and enterprise communications systems for complex organizations. Bluetext executed a multi-phase communications program, starting when we were engaged to capitalize on a modest contract secured with the U.S. Army to extending brand awareness across DoD to supporting recruitment and retention growth efforts and, finally, raising enterprise value towards a $400 million acquisition by Curtiss-Wright. Throughout the program, Bluetext secured hundreds of pieces of media coverage, including some representative examples of each phase below.
