Raft Secures $60M Washington Harbour Investment to Boost Tactical Edge Capabilities

Washington Harbour Partners, a private investment firm, has invested over $60 million in Raft, a software engineering company specializing in national security solutions, to enhance the latter’s tactical edge command and control offerings, Raft said.

The suite of defense solutions to be developed includes an artificial intelligence-powered battle management system, bi-directional data platforms, software platforms for unmanned systems and applications for communication environments with denied, degraded, intermittent and limited bandwidth.

Shubhi Mishram, Raft’s CEO and a 4×24 member, said the investment will accelerate Raft’s mission to provide cutting-edge technologies for modern warfare across various domains.

She also said that Washington Harbour’s expertise, vision and connections will contribute to Raft’s goal of serving customers and the country, particularly at the tactical edge.

Meanwhile, Mina Faltas, Washington Harbour’s founder and chief information officer, highlighted Raft’s capabilities and commitment to national security as key factors in the investment decision.

With the partnership, Raft will serve as Washington Harbour’s platform for supporting defense technology modernization, focusing on developing next-generation software for the Department of Defense, select civilian agencies and the intelligence community.
