Small Business

SDL’s position as an agent of the Government and one of 14 UARCs in the nation, combined with our commitment to our customers, drives our business strategy to seek vendors and subcontractors who have the same level of commitment to delivering on time and within budget. This commitment to our customers extends to our efforts to ensure that our business operations, procurement, employment, and technical transfer endeavors incorporate a high level of diversity.

SDL is actively seeking ways to increase diversity through business development, industry trade fairs, technical conferences, and minority business exchanges. We are especially committed to small businesses and welcome new working relationships with small, disadvantaged, women-owned, HUBZone, veteran-owned, and disabled veteran-owned businesses.

SDL specializes in space and airborne remote sensing and much of our work is for the Department of Defense and NASA. As such, our subcontracted parts and materials may require traceability, certification to customer standards, and/or meet environmental compatibility requirements.
