In the spring of 1999, Charles Adams founded Adams Communication & Engineering Technology (ACET) to serve federal agencies throughout the Federal Government with a focus on the Intelligence Community (i.e., CIA, DNI, NGA and NSA), Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Defense Health Agency. ACET began with a philosophy to hire the absolute best and brightest people – to be thought of as the employer of choice among top engineers, subject matter experts, and scientists in the industry.

Our company has always sought the most challenging projects, those that test the boundaries of our technical creativity, innovation or performance under pressure. In addition, we’ve managed a consistent pattern of growth as evidenced by the opening of new facilities to better serve our clients. In 2005, ACET opened its headquarters facility in Waldorf, MD, complete with a training center and separate recruiting office. In 2006, we opened the Reston, VA office, which is now headquarters for our Federal Solutions Group. In September 2011, ACET opened the Aberdeen, MD area office, which serves as headquarters for our Defense and Intelligence customers.  In March 2019, ACET opened an office in Lexington Park, MD in support of our Naval Aviation customers and Program Offices at NAVAIR.  ACET’s most recent office was established in Havelock, NC in support of United States Navy and Marine Corps programs, providing valuable storage, warehousing, and inspection/acceptance tasks for our customers and programs.

We understand that our clients – federal agencies, businesses, communities and organizations – exist in a world of great challenges. We appreciate their need to address these issues, to find solutions, with ever-greater effectiveness and efficiency, and economic realities. We are committed to being their valued solutions partner.
