Launched in 1980, our founder drove a vision and fierce commitment to deliver customer success and satisfaction. From the beginning, DTSI built a corporate culture intent on providing the most innovative and advanced solutions to the increasingly demanding technological challenges facing DoD agencies. Over time, the company has gathered a highly experienced and knowledgeable staff, lead numerous projects in the United States and around the world, while building a reputation for meeting mission requirements on time. We operate under the NAICS codes 517919, 541511, 811212, 541512 and others.

 

We provide a broad scope technology architecture development and implementation. Areas of expertise include system architecture design and integration, specialized network implementation and sustainment, system software application engineering and development, cyber and systems security, product development and support, and data processing and management. Our proven record of innovation and delivery of highly effective, technology-driven solutions to U.S. Government customers in the defense and cyber community. Our talented staff combines technical expertise, innovation, and real-world operational experience. We have a proven history of applying leading-edge technologies and developing specialized systems, tools, and methodologies to meet a range of functional needs.
Our software expertise and experience encompasses system-level programming for secure enterprise-class applications. Our software developers employ Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3 proven and systemic approach to software development. This is a spiral development model that provides a clear understanding of ongoing development efforts and provides a disciplined rule set of engineering procedures. Our software efforts have included web- and client-based applications, database development and support, encryption management, identity and access management, user interface design and development, multi-format data warehousing, cloud-based data processing and routing, data collection, and large-scale processing and analytics.
From a technology perspective, we believe the system of systems approach in the sustainment process can capitalize on emerging capabilities in the portfolio to enhance productivity and reduce costs over time (i.e. use SOA services for interfaces, use the rules engine to standardize rules, consolidate redundant applications, anticipate future requirements and capabilities). DTSI believes emerging virtualization and cloud capabilities are potential dollar saving targets not only for new acquisition systems but for properly structured legacy environments. We evaluate opportunities in order to move to more virtualization and potential on-premise cloud opportunities. We embed “build security into the product” approaches into all phases of the sustainment process and drive cost efficient solutions to cloud virtualization technology.
Our world revolves around the protection of secure information. Whether it’s classified national secrets or your personal information, our technologists and developers implement cutting-edge protection technologies to keep it out of the hands of the wrong people. We create mission assurance synergy within our customers by placing trained, certified and knowledgeable Information Assurance (IA) experts in direct support of the organization. Our experts bring knowledge of the work involved to obtain the initial certification and accreditation (C&A), re-certification and re-accreditation processes.
Our team consists of modern-day Cyber Warriors – technical personnel with differentiating experience that understand the risks, the military-specific world, and the missions of the Air Force and the Department of Defense. DTSI has learned that a defense IT professional is more than a list of certifications and technical skills, but rather a seasoned veteran who has worked for key organizations, has experience in the military domains, and understands the impacts and ramifications of day-to-day technology decisions. This knowledge ensures that critical defense weapon systems are sustained to the high expectations levels expected of a named Air Force weapon system, and our commitment to identifying the right personnel for that mission provides the Air Force the success and confidence it requires.
The Air Force spent over $1 billion to modernize its security infrastructure to better defend its computer systems from hacking and intercept. The armed services made a decision to move forward and to replace the 40-year-old, stand alone, Electronic Key Management System with a networked solution: Key Management Infrastructure (KMI). Our team works with individual communications security experts individually to successfully transition every account in the U.S. Air Force onto the new encryption platform. We prepare the systems, assist the owners along every step of the way and test the new system implementation before handing over the keys. Our activities helped the Air Force deliver this capability with a 25% reduction in anticipated cost.
DTSI has provided “Business Intelligence (BI)” capabilities to a variety of customers in several domains. Our personnel have leveraged BI tools to create analytical dashboards, storyboards, mapping and other collaborative business intelligence for the customer.

One recent example is the use of the Oracle Business Intelligence Edition suite of tools to provide statistical data and enhanced reporting capabilities to selected customers within the Air Force HRSTS community. These customers now possess enhanced data mining capabilities to more efficiently accomplish their specific missions.

DTSI technical experts continue to recognize the importance of cost effective Business Intelligence and the ability to enable enterprise-wide planning, enterprise alignment, budgeting/forecasting and other effective processes to enhance the mission critical processes for the DoD customers they serve.

DTSI helps secure and sustain the nation’s most complex networks from cyber threats. Our cyber command and control expertise works 24/7 to enable cyber operations at the speed of light for our Air Force partners. For over 35 years, we have helped the Air Force develop and sustain mission critical-critical software systems. For 20 years, we have supported the Air Force HR systems with enterprise support, software life cycle support and desktop support. We have expanded into the exploding cyber security field and we are hiring network engineers, system administrators, cyber and intelligence trainers and cybersecurity specialists at all levels of experience. This cyber team will work to deliver uninterrupted excellence to protect and support the Air Force’s cyber mission.
DTSI tends to the most complex network systems in the world. Our technicians at DTSI manage and perform communications-computer systems (C-CS) planning and implementation activities. We manage implementation of projects and ensure architecture, configuration, and integration conformity. We ensure new systems or system interfaces are in compliance with established DoD and AF policies and directives. In short, we live and breathe building and defending military computer networks. We interface with users and managers around the world to facilitate secure and seamless communications all while eyeing future capabilities and upgrade trends.
The Air Force and DoD require an experienced and qualified team to deliver optimal sustainment solutions for their personnel system. DTSI offers the most experienced, technically knowledgeable and functionally grounded workforce for sustaining the current HR software portfolio. That is a key differentiator in delivering realistic and achievable solutions that enable the lowest risk and immediately successful program execution with a high degree of confidence. In addition to our unmatched technical AF human resources (HR) systems credentials, our team has the highest level of functional knowledge and experience of any AF contractor for military HR programs. More than half of our team members are retired AF members, many of whom helped build and implement the systems they are maintaining today. We understand, work and train on AF and DoD enterprise systems, technical standards and processes. We also provide technical services that include: ERP (including PeopleSoft and Oracle HR R12) implementations and sustainment in AF and DoD environments; Java and .NET software development/sustainment in the AF and DoD environment; testing and implementation services; and database, application servers and tools production support services in both DISA and AF environments.
