COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—As other technology employers have been cutting jobs, Boeing Co. has been quietly adding positions in Colorado Springs to work on a new satellite system designed to detect and track objects orbiting the Earth, among other programs.
The aviation giant has added about 100 workers to its Springs payroll in the past year and expects to add 50 to 75 more this year to complete software design and hardware systems that control the Space Based Space Surveillance satellite system, along with upgrades to the Global Positioning System satellite network and a new global military-communications satellite system, said Bill Hodgkins, Boeing's senior Colorado executive.
