Our services include full spectrum project and program support, anywhere in the world.
Corvus was founded on the principles of Integrity, Experience and Innovation, and we live those ideals by going beyond traditional "senior officer for hire" deliverables of tactical business intelligence and access. While our associates are highly respected across DoD and a number of business areas, we realize what organizations need today are strategies designed for long-term performance and profitability in a global landscape. While many of our associates have Defense-related roots, our depth and breadth go far beyond Department of Defense or even US Government interests to international trend analysis, global marketing, and business strategy development and implementation. We offer our clients the ability to see beyond today's landscape by getting inside your organization and bringing in respected business strategists, global marketing professionals and industry subject matter experts to allow you to leap ahead through executable plans which leverage your core competencies. Your success is our mission.

A Message from the CEO:
When I started Corvus, I had the desire to build a first-class organization with integrity and vision, one with an enduring dedication to our National Security. I brought together those for whom the word "Service" has no expiration date, those who feel proud every day they can still contribute to our Nation. We do it through our deep and comprehensive knowledge of myriad US Government agencies, the Defense Department, our Industrial Base, and Defense-Related Academia, and we include a deep understanding of the International Markets and future trends. We believe the only way to make positive change is to have a clear understanding of our client's challenges - and our experience shows. Our word is our bond, and we deliver exactly what we say we will.
Why the Crow?
The name "Corvus" is the Latin name for the Crow and Raven families of birds. We chose this symbol not only because the Crow is the international symbol for Electronic Warfare, but is also known as a symbol of knowledge, power and wisdom. Our Corvus Crow is backed by a sine wave of Radio-Frequency energy to symbolize the fact we are leaders not only in Defense Management and Processes, but in Technology as well. Trust us to solve your toughest problems. Corvus delivers.
