The word Amentum is derived from a Greek word used to describe the leather device that was attached to a javelin to increase its range and the stability in flight. The device allowed the javelin to land on target with precision. As we move forward as an independent company, we communicate confidence and stability to our customers through a strong commitment to excellence in all that we do. Moreover, the name also sounds like momentum, which connotes our forward-leaning approach and innovation-driven future in support of our customers’ missions.
