NWS has evolved to become a preeminent, award-winning technical services company, providing integral support in U.S. Government efforts to:

  1. Acquire, maintain and operate leading-edge ground-, airborne- and space-based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems.
  2. Collect, analyze and exploit data from such systems.
  3. Conduct research and development to fully capitalize on the full spectrum of potential ISR system capabilities.
  4. Integrate systems and intelligence operations across the Intelligence Community (IC), Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government agencies.  

Our company has been at the forefront in delivering a wide range of transformational intelligence concepts, technologies and systems. NWS pioneered the use of collaboration in time-dominant intelligence operations for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. We applied many of the techniques and tools used in activity-based intelligence before the overall concepts extended in a much broader construct. NWS has had a leading role in the design, development and operations of a revolutionary set of space-based sensor systems and their associated ground processing elements.

In recognition of these and many other accomplishments, NWS has been recognized through numerous company, team and individual awards. We were awarded the Department of Defense’s (DOD’s) inaugural (2007) and 2008 SDVOSB Achievement Awards, the only defense company in DOD to do so. In a Past Performance Evaluation by Dun & Bradstreet’s Open Ratings, Inc., 20 customers from 20 separate NWS contracts/task orders were requested to assess key performance areas (e.g., quality, cost, reliability, personnel and responsiveness). NWS received an overall rating of 95 (out of 100), ranking in the top quintile of professional engineering services companies. NWS team members have been awarded several national-level team awards from the Director of National Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and National Reconnaissance Office.

With our highly disciplined, experts-in-their-field staff, our vision is to be the industry leader in transforming leading-edge concepts and technologies into the critical capabilities needed to address our nation’s most challenging security priorities. To realize this vision, NWS is organized to support two major lines of business: Defense Services and Intelligence Services.
