About Us

Since our founding in 2005, KMS Solutions, LLC has been focused on building our clients’ trust. We pride ourselves in delivering on-schedule and within-budget solutions which not only meet, but exceed, our client’s expectations.

We are dedicated to moving our Nation’s agenda forward. It’s the key ingredient that makes us who we are – like our passion for excellence, our innovation throughout our organization and our long-standing customer relationships. You will see this simple philosophy at work in everything we do. It defines who we are, challenges us, forces our minds to be open, and to be a world-class company. KMS Solutions has deep military and maritime roots with more than a dozen former Commanding Officers, Executive Officers and Chiefs of the Boat on submarines and surface combatants, in addition to 10+ former senior government civilians on our staff. More than half of our staff are veterans or spouses of veterans.
