­­­­­­Orbital Sciences Corp. is expanding its workforce in the Southern California area with the opening of a new engineering and technology center in the fa­ll of this year. To augment its launch vehicle and space systems' engineering capabilities, ­Orbital is finalizing plans to establish a West Coast office to tap the wealth of aeros­pace e­ngineering ­expertise in the­ Southern California­ area. Initially, Orbital expects to employ 30 to 40 engineers in support of Orbital's Taurus II space launch vehicle, as well as the company's missile defense efforts, and to monitor the work of suppliers in the region. The company is leasing offices in the Huntington Beach area, with planned­­ occupancy ­this October. When fully st­affed, the technical center will bring Orbital's California-based workforce to more than 150 people.
