Summary: Colorado Engineering Inc (CEI), a growing manufacturer of AESA and Terahertz radar, C4ISR and electronic warfare (EW) equipment is pleased to announce its 10 year anniversary. CEI has grown over the past 10 years and expanded into a 44,000 square foot building.

Online PR News – 23-April-2013 – Colorado Springs, Colorado – Colorado Springs, CO – Colorado Engineering Inc (CEI) is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this week. CEI was formed on April 22, 2003 by Nancy Scally, CEO, and Larry Scally, President/CTO.

Over the last 10 years, CEI has grown from 2 to 33 employees and moved from the Scally’s basement to a 44,000 square foot building. Nancy and Larry have created one of Colorado Springs’ fastest growing defense contractors. Nancy recently was awarded the 2012 Kansas State University Entrepreneur of the Year Alumni Award. In 2011, Nancy was awarded both the United States Small Business Administration Tibbetts Award and the Department of Defense Nunn-Perry Award.

CEI’s dynamic growth can be attributed to both the leadership of Nancy and Larry along with the rich engineering talent at CEI. Of the 33 employees, 28 of the employees have technical backgrounds. Larry has always emphasized the cross-training of the engineering staff to make sure the engineers always see the big picture. Larry is famous for saying to interviewees, “If you love engineering, then CEI is a great place to work.” As CTO, Larry provides the engineers with a wide variety of projects to work on from RF/Analog analysis to FPGA board development to cloud computing.

One of CEI’s crowning accomplishments over the past 10 years has been the development of an air-to-air, C-Band, pulse Doppler, AESA radar. Many large defense contractors struggle to develop similar radars and for ten times the cost, but CEI started from scratch in 2007 and has now had 3 successful test flights. CEI was only 7 employees when the United States Government took a calculated gamble on CEI over much larger companies.

In addition to the AESA radar, CEI has been awarded 33 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIRs) Phase I awards along with numerous Phase II and III awards. CEI has been a part of additional BAAs, ID/IQs and other contract vehicles as the prime contractor and as a sub-contractor.
