About Us

TRUSTED ADVISOR.

OPTIMIZED PERFORMANCE.

VALUED INNOVATION.

Founded in 1979 by Richard L. Bennett, CEO & President, ASD had a single goal in mind – to mobilize people and resources to provide superior services to the federal government while building a respected, successful business that would operate with the highest levels of professionalism and integrity.

 

ASD offers world-class IT solutions to advance the use of emerging technologies in support of the mission of our nation’s federal and defense agencies. We leverage our staff of highly qualified technology professionals, our four decades of experience, and industry leading process & technological innovations to reduce cost, minimize risk, and deliver exceptional service.

 

ASD’s stability is illustrated by our repeat customers and renewed contracts at the highest levels of government agencies. We believe that we have combined large-business savvy with the agility of small-business decision making. No matter how large we grow, we will continue the philosophies that brought us to where we are today.
