About Aegis

About Aegis

At Aegis, we combine domain knowledge, technical expertise, and an agile systems engineering approach to solve our clients’ process, data, and technical problems. We are solutions architects at the intersection of logistics and technology. Using a model-based systems engineering approach, we improve processes, develop technical solutions and assist in implementing organizational change.


Founded in August 2010 by retired United States Navy officer, Jason Carter, Aegis began as a one-man consulting firm, providing IT portfolio management services for United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM). In March 2011, Aegis signed its second contract with Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC), enabling Jason to hire his first team member. In the following years, Aegis’ clientele has expanded, to include: the Department of Homeland Security, the Veteran’s Administration, the State of Missouri, Air Mobility Command (AMC), the Transportation Engineering Agency, East-West Gateway Council of Governments, and the Bi-State Development Agency.


Aegis is built on the core values of Service, Integrity, and Community, and these values influence everything we do in business and our personal lives. We constantly seek to improve ourselves, those around us, and our communities through the work we do and the way in which we bear the Aegis brand. These principles shape our actions and how we interact with each other, and they underlie our work. We are committed to providing more value than we demand in return in everything we do.


At Aegis, we uphold service before self, giving over receiving, and delivering exceptional value in business, in our relationships, and in our community. As responsible members of the community, we believe in being great stewards and making an impact that matters. Some of the ways the Aegis team serves our community are: volunteering for the Pujols Family Foundation, contributing to the Special Olympics-Illinois, and organizing the “Spirit of Christmas,” delivering gifts and holiday cheer to local underprivileged families.
