The firm's new Tucson office, in cooperation with the University of Arizona Optical Sciences Center, provides expertise in complex electro-optical space-based intercept vehicles, payloads and associated technologies. Spectrum Astro is a fast-growing company in sales, technology, and resources. The average employee has 16.3 years of career experience. Two-thirds of employees hold a bachelors degree or higher while one-third hold a masters degree or higher.
