Paragon was incorporated in Massachusetts in 2006. We have provided a wide range of subject matter expertise (SME) supporting the Department of Defense (DoD) and successfully executed, with the Air Force, a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA).
The owners, Dave and Jeff Carstairs, have developed an outstanding reputation and workforce offering acquisition lifecycle and engineering support services. We provide management, analytical, and technical support services to public and private sectors.
Dave Carstairs, a retired member of the Senior Executive Service (SES), has over 40 years of systems acquisition experience. He is an electrical engineer with technical know-how that has served on hundreds of program acquisition plans and source selections, resulting in immediate knowledge of the process and no time delay.
