Brief History of AUSGAR

Founded in 2003 by Mr. Jon Dien, AUSGAR began with a single sole source SDVOSB award from Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR). From this single contract, AUSGAR gained experience and a reputation for providing quality security engineering and later systems engineering services. Early on, AUSGAR’s Information Systems Security Engineers (ISSE) were recognized for their skillfully execution of the DoD Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSCAP) and later the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP). We now are leading efforts in the transition to DISA’s Risk Management Framework (RMF). This cements AUSGAR’s reputation as an industry leader in fields of IA and C&A.

Through very selective hiring, AUSGAR was able to establish a genuine cadre of experts and professionals. AUSGAR’s approach of only hiring the best continues to this day and is the reason for our exceptional success. Growing at a consistent rate of 10-20% annually, AUSGAR has established additional niche areas of expertise with Fleet Experimentation, Training, IT Operational Support, Sensor Integration, On-the-Move (OTM) Communications Development, and New Technology Assessment, Prototyping, and Integration. Looking to the near future, our men and women are working to expand our corporate capabilities portfolio in the areas software engineering, functional area management, persistent surveillance, autonomous vehicle development, and many other exciting technologies.
