Expansion of Rochester Business will Support Federal Initiatives

Expansion of Rochester Business will Support Federal Initiatives

ROCHESTER, NY, February 20, 2020

Orolia employees eagerly welcomed Joe Morelle, representative for New York's 25th congressional district, on Wednesday morning at their office in Rochester’s neighborhood of the arts.

Earlier in the week, the federal government issued an Executive Order on Strengthening National Resilience through Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services – reinforcing the pertinence of the meeting to soon take place.

During the meeting, several topics were discussed including PNT technology, related threats to our national security, the need to protect our critical infrastructure systems, and how Orolia is currently creating innovative solutions that address the premise of those very issues.

Since Orolia’s beginning in Rochester, they have added 40+ new employees to its staff to support future Resilient PNT projects for commercial and government customers, seeing 61% in overall growth, with expectations for growth to continue.

“Rochester is home to some incredible businesses that are doing important work to equip the branches of our military with state-of-the-art technology,” said Morelle.

Advocation for Resilient PNT efforts at the federal level is essential. Equally important is the effect it has on job creation and economic benefits within the Rochester community.

“Orolia is proud to call Rochester our home. The level of experience and talent fostered right here in Rochester has directly impacted our ability to build an amazing team who unquestionably contributes to our success, and therefore the strength of our national security,” said Hironori Sasaki, President of Orolia Defense & Security.

Orolia will exhibit at the 2020 AUSA Global Force Symposium & Expo, March 17th – 19th in Huntsville, AL, to showcase a selection of Resilient PNT solutions.
