More Than 25 Years of Serving Our Clients and the Public Good

Noblis is a dynamic science, technology and strategy organization dedicated to creating forward-thinking technical and advisory solutions in the public interest. We bring the best of scientific thought, management and engineering expertise together in an environment of independence and objectivity to deliver enduring impact on federal missions. The roots of our company go back to the 1940s.

The idea that would become Noblis grew out of research labs and the belief that great ideas and collaboration supported by science and technology can solve the biggest challenges facing our government, our nation and the world. Noblis was created in 1996 to be more agile and responsive to the changing landscape of government contracting – something we continue to strive for today.

Over the years, we have grown through acquisitions – nearly quadrupling in size since our founding and broadening for national security, defense and intelligence missions. To meet our customers’ evolving needs, we have added expertise and capabilities in areas like autonomous systems, aerospace engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning, space systems and cybersecurity.

In 2021, Noblis celebrated our 25th anniversary. We are proud of our accomplishments and the impacts we’ve made to customer missions. Our work in the early years was cutting edge for its time, but progress never stands still. While we once helped demilitarize chemical weapons, now we’re helping track down cyber criminals. In 1996, we were advising defense and military customers on environmental remediation around facilities; now we’re helping them to create energy-efficient and environmentally sound sustainable infrastructures. In the early days, we worked with customers to implement enterprise-wide infrastructure for landlines; now we’re helping them transition to secure, cloud-based networks and solutions. Early support for transportation agencies involved highway policy research, but that has expanded to digital air traffic management communications and autonomous connected vehicle technology.

Noblis’ history also includes significant recognition as a top workplace and an ethical company. We have made the list of Washington Post’s Top Workplaces in the Washington, D.C. area every year since its beginning in 2014. We have also been named as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies numerous times by the Ethisphere Institute. View all our awards.

As our sphere of endeavor grows, our mission and values remain the same. We save lives and improve and protect enterprises by enabling our teams to deliver trusted scientific, technical, engineering and operational know-how and solutions. To secure our future and achieve our aspirations, our 2030 envisioned state is to be be a recognized S&T powerhouse that continuously inserts advanced solutions and technologies into the public sector, creating enduring value through new technologies, a creative and inventive culture and multi-year research endeavors that bring disruptive concepts to reality–everywhere. For the best of reasons.
