About Us


Dot4, Inc. was founded in 1993 as a consulting company focused on realtime and embedded industries. In 2007 Innovative Applied Sciences was born out of Dot4 with a new mission to pursue cutting edge software development opportunities.

Innovative Applied Sciences is more than just a software consulting company, we are a Service Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVO) small business that is committed to the economic betterment of veterans as they reenter civilian life. We look to recruit, direct and support military veterans who have applied science and technology skills. We look for opportunities to partner with other SDVO and Veteran Owned companies to create opportunities for growth.

Innovative specializes in embedded and realtime systems, and is focused on C4ISR in the Defense sector. Our deep expertise in system design, development, migration and rehosting is being applied to the new wave of weapon system modernization resulting from the Department of Defense Net–Centric Warfare initiative.
