Agile / DevSecOps & SAFe (A5E)
OST’s Agile 5 Ecosystem (A5E) is a unique integration of agile/SCRUM methodologies with CMMI-Dev Level 5 techniques that work together to improve the delivery rate of system capabilities, maintain high-quality levels, and build customer satisfaction. This is a fusion of best practices from Lean Six Sigma, Agile, SAFe, ISO, PMBOK, Organizational Change, and CMMI-Dev Level 5. A5E has high maturity metrics and models for predictive analytics that help OST identify potential risks for our customers, long before they are realized.
AI / ML/ Data Science and Predictive Analysis
OST marries the efficiencies of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to create real-time situational awareness and better meet customer needs now and in the future. By combining these disciplines with data science and predictive analytics, we help government agencies analyze and process large amounts of data to identify future behaviors, trends, and outcomes and facilitate more informed decision making. OST’s Center for Engineering and Innovation (CoEI) is an integration laboratory that fuels our work in this area. It is made up of people, processes, technologies, and partners, all using a combination of AI, ML, data science, and predictive analytics to create a sustained culture of open and continuous innovation for our customers.
Cloud & Infrastructure
Modernization is critical to building an agile government. Whether migrating existing legacy systems to the cloud, integrating on-premises systems with cloud-based applications, or helping agencies evaluate their systems portfolio and construct the right cloud strategy, OST helps customers assess their cloud and infrastructure needs to build a best-fit solution that is stable, secure, and scalable. Our team of experts evaluates public, private, and hybrid cloud approaches to provide customers with a cost-effective solution that combines technology with business.
Cyber / Zero Trust / RMF
OST brings together the experience and knowledge from subject matter experts throughout our company to assess and implement industry standard cyber solutions. Our innovative, well-documented, and effective approaches provide our customers with preventative, detective, and perimeterless cybersecurity. We also work closely with government agencies to ensure our solutions are FITARA-compliant and implement a Risk Management Framework (RMF) to integrate information security and risk management activities.
IoT / Sensor Integration
The internet of things, or IoT, refers to physical objects that connect and exchange data. At OST, we integrate a broad spectrum of IoT sensors into a common operating environment to help federal, state, and local government entities and municipalities assess situations, gather real-time intelligence, and improve preemptive readiness and response. From integrating electro optical devices into a zero-trust network using block chain to installing radio frequency and radar devices near airports to monitor UAS activity, OST uses IoT and sensor integration to increase situational awareness, strengthen environmental sustainability, and bring operational efficiency to make our communities safe and secure.
IT Service Management (ITSM)
OST’s IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions help our clients better plan, deliver, and support IT environments to meet unique needs and achieve specific goals. Our experts work to uncover the business objectives (the ‘why’) behind certain requirements and provide the right mix of people, processes, and technology to help government agencies better manage their IT operations. OST has the knowledge, technical depth, and expertise to help clients discover where their IT environment is now and where it needs to be. We use practices rooted in ISO 27001 and ISO 20000 to enable us to establish a set of best practices and procedures that are consistent, repeatable, and continuously improved.
IT Staff Augmentation
OST’s IT staff augmentation services offer customers on-demand support in a wide variety of areas including application support, technical support, business support, information security, and beyond. We provide qualified candidates, industry expertise, and a contingent workforce in a timely manner when customers need support the most. OST’s rapid-response services offer customers full workforce and budget transparency, faster placement of required resources, actionable business intelligence, and reduced paperwork to improve scalability and efficiency.
OST’s Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) work provides broad-spectrum advice, assistance, and support to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) in the areas of acquisition, engineering, and lifecycle management. Our team of experts provides responsive integrated and interoperable infrastructure and full spectrum functional support such as acquisition management, financial and program management, systems engineering, cybersecurity, foreign military sales, security, and logistics on complex DoD systems and programs.
OST provides spectrum engineering and analysis support to help government agencies evaluate their current inventory of radio frequency assignments and develop a frequency plan for re-structuring, eliminating, or modernizing existing frequencies. Our subject matter experts work with customers to develop and enhance critical tools to manage, engineer, and protect specific frequency spectrums, ensuring safe and interference free operations for our nation’s critical systems.
