Polaris Alpha is growing its Maryland presence with a new office at Aberdeen Proving Ground, and will look to hire tech talent in the next year.

The defense contractor working with the intelligence community and U.S. Department of Defense moved its Intelligence & Combat Information Division into a new office this fall, the company said. The 16,497 sq. ft. space provides more room than the prior office, which was close to 6,700 sq. ft.

The move came after the company more than doubled growth at the Army facility north of Baltimore. Now, 34 employees are working at the new facility. Along with more space, it has demonstration labs and testing areas. It’s also where company CEO Peter Cannito is based.

“We were also looking for space that was conducive to not only the number of employees but for the cultural environment,” Cannito said in a statement. “This location is set up in a manner that encourages and cultivates open idea exchange and enhanced teamwork, which will undoubtedly benefit our customers as well.”

The company specializes in areas such as cybersecurity, machine learning, rapid prototyping and electromagnetic warfare.

Hiring is expected to continue next year, with about 50 positions expected to open across APG and other Maryland locations including Annapolis Junction, according to Cannito. Some of the positions include software engineers, systems engineers, system architects, cybersecurity specialists and C4ISR subject matter experts.

The company has a total of 1,200 employees, spread across Colorado Springs and Northern Virginia in addition to Maryland.

Polaris Alpha also grew by acquisition in Maryland this year, completing a deal in January for Elkridge-based Intelesys Corporation.
