A Brief History
Who is Gnostech? It starts with our name, which combines the Greek word for knowledge and technology, and is rooted in our company history.
The Gnostech team consists of problem solvers who bring an innovative mix of knowledge and technology to the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC). With a deep understanding of our customers’ challenges and expertise in existing and emerging technologies, we rapidly deliver tailored engineering solutions to meet their mission requirements. Gnostech solutions ensure system integrity and performance in all operational domains.
Founded in 1981, Gnostech began as a Global Positioning System (GPS)-applied engineering company in Warminster, PA, providing GPS simulation and software development support to the U.S. Navy. Over the decades, our capabilities expanded to include expertise in cybersecurity engineering and operations, software engineering and Development Security Operations (DevSecOps), Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) engineering and operations, and Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems engineering.
Today, we are a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). With the addition of a west coast office in San Diego, CA, we have customer sites across the country, including the greater Philadelphia region, Colorado Springs, CO, and Albuquerque, NM.
At Gnostech, our employees are our most important asset. We believe and never fail to acknowledge that taking care of them leads to success for both our company and customers. We are committed to the professional and personal development of our workforce and are continually looking for the best talent in our industry to support Gnostech’s mission.

Gnostech’s reputation as a company that provides world-class services and products is surpassed only by the reputation the Gnostech team has as being the best and brightest in the industry. Every member of our team is expected to uphold the highest ethical standards and become increasingly proficient in their area of expertise. In return, Gnostech provides our employees opportunities to grow, contribute, and be rewarded.

Maintaining Culture, focusing on People and, properly managing Business are ultimately driven by our desire to give our Customers the services and products they need to achieve their organizational objectives.
Gnostech’s DNA as an entrepreneurial start-up is the key to our continued success. We value creative and novel methods to apply our Knowledge and the Technology we create so our People, our Business, and our present and future Customers can achieve sustained Success.
