MAR (Spanish for "sea, ocean") was incorporated in late 1971 and began operations in early 1972 in Rockville, Maryland by providing marine related engineering services for the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the David Taylor Model Basin, now NSWC - Carderock, through sole source and then competitive procurements.
As the world and the needs of our Government changed over the years so did our approach to business. We continued our support in the undersea acoustic and ocean engineering communities, moved into research ship and at-sea operations and also secured contracts in the area of specialized Government facilities management and operation. We also expanded into supporting our country's efforts with Counter Terrorism and Environmental research initiatives, and continued to diversify our work in Systems Engineering and Integration across a broad range of applications.
Today, we also have a strong and diverse role supporting Information Technology, Information Assurance, and Software Development requirements within the Civilian and DOD communities. This work includes high priority National Security and Homeland Defense efforts in the areas of Intelligence and Special Programs. We have successfully merged our proven past performance and legacy work with new corporate capabilities to provide complex and integrated solutions for our Government. With approximately 70 percent of our staff holding special clearances and the ability to attract and retain talented personnel, we are poised to accommodate our customer's needs now and into the future. – less
