Our experience

Salas O’Brien is providing innovation for federal and military clients

Our team focuses on integrating existing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) automation and robotic technologies into holistic solutions that meet our clients’ specific applications. As necessary, our team can develop prototype systems that operate alongside legacy processes to ensure a seamless integrated solution. Specifically, Salas O’Brien is developing, designing, and constructing some of the largest advanced robotics solutions for Department of Defense (DoD).

We are also breaking ground with advanced pilot studies as we align third party financing for the beneficial reuse of dredge material at major ports across the world. Salas O’Brien works with DoD clients to pilot advanced analytic solutions to support energy resiliency by remotely monitoring energy intensity, identifying energy savings, and supporting predictive maintenance at installations. We were selected for a CSO contract by the U.S. Air Force that offers innovative approaches to helping the DoD, Military, and their families with improved communications by leveraging 5G networks.
