Citadel Defense, a premiere signal intelligence and electronic warfare technology company, is moving into a new corporate campus in San Diego as demand for their industry-pioneering Titan counter drone solutions tripled for the third straight year.
“To support an increasing number of government contract awards, Citadel is moving to our high-tech Innovation Center in Mission Valley in August after the build-out is completed,” explained Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense.
Citadel’s footprint in the San Diego, CA region will double over the next twelve months to 60K square feet of office and production space. The new space will include a customer training center, increased production capacity, a UAS development garage, unmanned integrated solutions floor, and AI-Center of Excellence. The improved facilities and expanded manufacturing capacity will match Citadel’s responsiveness to customer’s needs and the rapidly evolving unmanned systems market as military and government customers entrust Citadel Defense as the Prime Contractor for new contracts.
“The combination of successful contract performance, unprecedented customer satisfaction, and trust that servicemen and servicewomen place in our solutions was critical to making this infrastructure investment. Our new Innovation Center helps accelerate innovation, increases production capacity, and supports even greater collaboration with our end users – all of which positively impacts mission outcomes,” said Williams.
Citadel is aggressively hiring for positions that expand the company’s business partnerships, program management, software development, industrial design, hardware engineering, integration services, and AI and machine learning capabilities.
Williams shared, “In addition to the state-of-the-art engineering facility, there will also be a fitness center, outdoor options for collaboration, space for UAS flight testing, and an open modern layout that also offers employees privacy. Citadel is continuing to invest in areas that prioritize our customers, employees, and their families.”
