What is AVIAN. AVIAN (pronounced ay * v * yin – relating to a bird-like flying creature) is a services-based company founded by retired U.S. Navy test pilots who believe talent and passion are the right traits to get the job done. Headquartered in Lexington Park, Maryland, we relish in the process of cracking open a Maryland blue crab and the delicious reward you get with a little hard work. Our team spans from sea to shining sea supporting the Department of Defense, specifically, the Naval Air Systems Command the Naval Sea Systems Command and the Office of Naval Research; and the Colorado Department of Transportation. We operate in a culture that thrives on innovation, creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit. We move fast, take risks and don’t settle for the status quo.
