About Us


Jovian Concepts delivers unique, on-site consulting services to government, academic, and commercial missions. Our company is composed of professionals with solid management and technical expertise with diversified backgrounds including prominent leaders in academia, military, and national intelligence.

The experience level, reputation of our staff, and our dedication to long term customer relationship-building gives us a competitive advantage.

Founded in 2009 by Richard Scheper, Ph.D., Jovian Concepts is known for being attentive to the emerging technologies and policies within the Federal Government and for matching the right employees to the task. Our competent, congenial staff works side by side with their Government counterparts to deliver practical, cutting edge technology solutions in the most demanding mission areas. 

What's the BIG IDEA?

Jovian Concepts is founded on the belief Dr. Scheper developed over the course of his career: the surest way to provide outstanding support to every facet of a mission is by gathering the best people in the business. As an astrophysicist, Dr. Scheper naturally invoked the largest planet in our solar system to name Jovian Concepts-- representing the 'big ideas' we provide our customers and the emphasis we place on building a corporate culture that invests in our employees.


Whether technical, programmatic, managerial, or clerical, superior performance comes from thoughtful people: people who listen, who regularly move out of their comfort zones, who think critically and consider opposing points of view, and, most importantly, who do not take themselves too seriously. At Jovian Concepts we believe in the big idea of building a positive community to support such people so that they can do what they do best, keeping Jovian Concepts Down to Earth...Up to the Challenge

Corporate Culture


At Jovian Concepts, we understand the importance of a great corporate culture. We strive to foster an environment in which employees are treated like family by committing to our employees' long term success as individuals. Jovian Concepts employees are company owners encouraged to be social, creative, and forward-thinking.  We advocate every employee maintaining a healthy work-life balance as well as taking advantage of professional development opportunities such as tuition assistance. Our corporate family comes together for a yearly retreat, regular happy hours, annual local picnics, and other regular celebrations.

Philanthropic Mission


Jovian Concepts strives to enrich the environment in which our employees work and live, primarily by supporting educational programs and programs aimed at improving the lives of U. S. Armed Forces. This twofold mission stems from suggestions made by employees, as does much of our community involvement. We are proud to host a yearly golf tournament in Maryland to benefit the American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces, to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs through involvement in local schools, and to participate in fundraising for the causes held most dear to our Jovian Concepts family.
