Who We Are

Who We Are

SENTEL was founded in 1986 as an engineering company supporting the U.S. government with electromagnetic capabilities and sensor integration. As the needs of our customers have grown, and technology has accelerated to match, SENTEL has substantially grown capability areas to provide the services our customers need. SENTEL now supports integrated logistics, information technology, intelligence, engineering, mission support, business services and test and evaluation services for a variety of clients.  Our multi-faceted company is currently engaged in various high profile initiatives ranging from major integrated logistics initiatives, border protection, system engineering services, geophysical monitoring technology, safety management, intelligence support activities, chemical and biological detection, security product development and software development.

SENTEL has become a leader in security management, materiel distribution, property accountability, asset visibility, supply chain management, warehousing, packaging, and transportation services by air, rail, sea and the highways.

SENTEL’s headquarters are based in Old Town, Alexandria, VA, within close proximity to the Nation’s federal corridor of key governmental agencies. Currently, SENTEL’s 500 plus employees, from diverse backgrounds, are situated in over 30 locations throughout the US and several foreign countries, including Southwest Asia and Korea.  Among its talented ranks are employees who have high levels of corporate and military experience.   SENTEL employees are customer focused and their dedication and loyalty bode well for the company’s high retention rate.  Two thirds of SENTEL’s workforce maintains security clearances on top of their specialized training and skill sets.

Over the years, SENTEL has garnered numerous awards and recognition for its work and support of mission-critical operations for both Government and commercial clients.   It recently ranked 37th on the Black Enterprise Magazine list of Industrial/Services Companies.  Another distinction for the company is its ability to constantly achieve outstanding results during CMMI Level 2 and 3 appraisals and ISO 9001:2015 recertification audits.

In January 2018, SENTEL was acquired by Vectrus Systems Corporation. The acquisition accelerates Vectrus’ strategy to be a leader in the converging physical and digital infrastructure market, enhancing global logistics operations, and IT and technical solutions capabilities. The merging of these services and the integration of two leading service providers give expanded value to our customer, and who’s commitment continues being True To Your Mission and Anchored in Trust.
