Founded in 1992, ARES Corporation is an award-winning space and defense company, providing innovative, reliable, and cost-effective solutions on-time and within budget to high value-programs. Our clients include the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Missile Defense Agency, Space Force, Air Force Research Laboratory, and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
The ARES name is derived from the work we do – using applied research and engineering sciences to develop innovative solutions to complex challenges. Our roots in quality run deep. Founded in 1992 as an engineering consulting firm, we have provided safety and mission assurance services to the Federal Government for over 30 years. From radiological waste retrieval to quantitative risk assessments for the International Space Station and Ballistic Missile Defense system, our company ensures the success of multi-billion-dollar Government programs.
Our work has evolved to meet our Nation’s most difficult challenges in the domains of program management, safety and mission assurance, operations, engineering, integration and testing, and information technology. Our teams apply risk-informed decision-making to everything we do, helping our clients tackle their most difficult challenges with their eyes open. Through holistic, continuous risk management best practices and data-driven decision making, we create opportunities through risk insight.
In 2022, ARES became a 100% employee-owned company through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). This path allows us to continue to be an independently-managed company, focused on long-term success with an employee-centered culture. As owners, our employees are deeply invested in the success of our client’s mission, creating a collaborative, productive work environment where everyone strives toward a common goal.
