Terry Spitzer

President & Chief Executive Officer

Terry Spitzer has more than 20 years of experience in leading a company that supports the U.S. military and intelligence agencies through cybersecurity and security product engineering. He is responsible for the company’s overall vision and operations, focusing on manufacturing and engineering solutions.

A U.S. Navy veteran, Terry leads GTS to support naval combat systems, command-and-control systems, sensor technologies, biometrics technologies, energy storage, specialized munitions, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives defense.

Under his leadership, GTS has developed multi-enclave, dual-encrypted secure communications capabilities, 5G mobile technologies, and high-performance computing capacity. These commercial technologies focus on vulnerabilities identified by the U.S. National Security Agency’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program and goals identified by the recently established 5G Portfolio of the Office of Under Secretary of Defense.

With Terry as CEO, GTS has also advanced the design and manufacturing processes for electro-mechanical batteries (EMBs), used to store and integrate the use of intermittent green energy such as wind and solar. EMBs also have significant defense applications, including high-energy weapon systems, expeditionary power, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. In addition, GTS has developed new biometric identification technologies for the military.

GTS used these technological advancements to establish SPARQ, its commercial division brand, to extend these national security tools into the commercial market.

Since co-founding GTS in 1997, the company has expanded its operations to six U.S. states and procured tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue. In early 2020, the company landed a US$782 million contract to manufacture equipment for the U.S. Navy’s combat system network.
During his military career, Terry oversaw several critical technology initiatives, including developing the Common Processing System (CPS), a shock-resistant open architecture and modular computing system integrated on the Navy’s Aegis fleet of ships and other Navy platforms.
