Our website is designed to provide an insight into SMS’ expertise. For the past four decades, SMS engagements have helped protect, process, transmit and securely receive information – at all classification levels for the Federal Government.
Founded in 1976, SMS has a long history of providing innovative IT solutions. Our success is defined in terms of teamwork, integrity, expertise and the commitment of our entire work force. I am proud to say that SMS’ employee tenure averages 8 years and the management team’s average is in excess of 20 years.
Here are just a few of our major milestones:
- The first mass deployment of office automation using personal computers to the United States Army in 1985 via an Indefinite Delivery Quantity (IDIQ) contract.
- The introduction of the first Cisco router to the Department of Defense.
- Building of the first Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network in the Washington Metropolitan area.
- The first use of the word “internet” to refer to a computer network appeared in the Washington Post on September 26, 1988. The entire reference: “SMS in McLean won a $1,005,048 contract from the Air Force to supply a defense data network internet protocol router.”
Our quality of service and commitment to customer satisfaction ranks #1. Our commitment is acknowledged and appreciated by our customers and partners and our corporate culture is focused on meeting and exceeding the high trust placed on us by customers, partners and employees.

SMS will continue to look for the best ways to serve our customers in the future. We are always asking ourselves the question, “How can we make the everyday work-lives of our customers more efficient and cost effective through the use of technology?”
