McLean, VA, July 2019 – OST, Inc. (Optimal Solutions & Technologies) proudly announces it is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its founding this month. Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Vijay Narula, along with a small team of managers, engineers, and IT executives, established the firm in 1999 with one overarching mission: to develop value-driven solutions that improve customers’ business operations and advance their missions.
Over the years, OST has achieved its vision of being an industry leader in delivering transformational technologies and world-class solutions in diverse operational environments. Today, the firm’s 500+ employees offer diverse public and private sector clients next-generation solutions across six core capabilities: C4ISR, Smart Infrastructure, Digital, RDE & SETA, Strategic Innovation, and Managed Services.
At the heart of everything OST does is a deep-seated commitment to social responsibility. Employing our nation’s veterans is a priority, as is helping organizations that promote the well-being of veterans, active duty military and their families. OST proudly supports Operation Gratitude, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), Final Salute, and Operation First Response, among others. OST also supports the Jimmy V Foundation’s Victory Over Cancer, Toys for Tots, and major disaster relief efforts, as well as local school supply drives and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiatives.
In reflecting on these philanthropic achievements, Vijay Narula said, “I am exceptionally proud of the company we have built and the difference we make every day. Beyond saving millions of dollars and helping clients achieve their missions more efficiently and effectively, we have never forgotten the debt of gratitude we owe to our nation’s veterans or our responsibility to better the communities in which we operate. I am committed to building on our solid record of achievement in the next 20 years and beyond.”
