Sagecor is a complete engineering services company that employs top-level talent who possess the expertise to provide customers with true full-lifecycle System Engineering Services.

Sagecor offers services beginning as early as the Research phase, where basic analysis is performed and prototypes as proof-of-concept are built.

During the crucial planning phase of a system, Sagecor’s team of Systems Engineers, SETA Services professionals, and Knowledge Management experts make sure each customer is prepared to define its program requirements, begin design activities, and manage the planning for development through lifecycle support & sustainment.

After the System Development begins, Sagecor has Hardware and Software engineers prepared to work alongside our customers in the Design and Build of the system.

Our processes ensure robust technical expertise, access to time-tested procedures, and successful program execution.

When the primary system components are completed, Sagecor’s team of Integration and Test engineers will integrate and test the customer’s system to guarantee the components function as part of the larger system.

Upon completion of Acceptance Testing, Sagecor employs Systems Administrators to ensure that the system remains sustained and operational for the length of the mission.

Sagecor’s “cradle-to-grave” experts provide our customers with the peace of mind that we can provide the expertise to meet any challenge.
