FORT COLLINS, Colo. (April 2, 2019) —Numerica Corporation has opened a new office in Colorado Springs, a national epicenter for aerospace and defense. Located at 5475 Tech Center Drive, the office will primarily house the company’s growing Space Situational Awareness (SSA) team and serve as the ideal location for its Colorado Springs-based customers.
Headquartered in Fort Collins, Numerica creates innovative solutions to the most pressing technical challenges faced by air and missile defense, SSA, and law enforcement customers. The expansion into Colorado Springs supports the recent launch of the SSA team’s commercial product line that includes data being collected from its global telescope network and processed in real-time to help inform operator action.
“We’re excited to open the Colorado Springs office and solidify our standing as a leader in the air and missile defense as well as space situational awareness industries,” Jeff Poore, Numerica President, said. “This new location will allow us to better serve our customers through commercial space tracking capabilities.”
Leading Colorado Springs operations are retired U.S. Air Force Colonels Todd Brost and Jeff Sherk, both with nearly 30 years of experience leading operations, acquisition, research and development, and test and evaluation of Air Force space programs.
With more than 29 years of experience in Air Force space operations, test acquisition, intelligence and war-planning, Brost was the first director of the National Space Defense Center and will serve as the SSA team’s director of special programs.
Sherk, whose career in the Air Force focused on space superiority, directed energy, hypersonic and missile defense programs, was hired as the SSA team’s director of strategic programs.
With their extensive career backgrounds and in-depth knowledge of the industry, Brost and Sherk will lead business development efforts and support customer engagement.
“Colorado Springs is home to Air Force Space Command Headquarters, the National Space Defense Center, the Defense Innovation Unit, and many other existing and potential customers,” Numerica Vice President Jeff Aristoff, Ph.D., said. “Our new location will enable focused collaboration and facilitate the transition of innovative solutions with our key customers. Our growth has been accelerating over the past few years and with a strategic expansion into Colorado Springs, we expect to see this trend continue.”
