About RiverTech

RiverTech, LLC, is an SBA certified 8(a) company wholly owned by an Alaska Native Corporation. RiverTech’s 8(a) status allows federal customers to sole-source contracts of any dollar value to RiverTech – streamlining the acquisition process to put our Space-Maritime, C4IM, and C4ISR services and capabilities to work on critical missions.

RiverTech receives support from its parent company for common administrative services. This structure allows RiverTech to operate as a small business especially in terms of agility, autonomy, customer interaction, and decision-making.
