Delta Solutions & Strategies, founded in 2000 in Colorado Springs, Colo., creates military training products, operations and maintenance, modeling and simulations, and professional and technical advisory and assistance services for the Department of Defense.

With 315 employees and over 150 subcontractors, Delta hit an annual revenue of $80M in 2022. Delta established operations in Huntsville, Alabama in 2009 and opened a Washington D.C. office in 2022 to support its continued growth to the Pentagon.
