JDSAT Expands Fairfax County, Virginia, Operations

JDSAT, Inc., an application development and data sciences firm, plans to expand its operations in Fairfax County, Virginia. The $630,000 project is expected to create 60 jobs.

The investment will include technical staff and analysts to support the company’s growing artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and data science business.

“This new office opening signifies an exciting step in JDSAT’s growth, allowing us to expand both our teams and capabilities,” said Scott Woosley, CEO at JDSAT, Inc. “As part of our commitment to provide a collaborative work environment for our talented staff, this new space offers the resources and amenities to thrive, fostering a sense of unity and inclusion. We’re thrilled to embark on this next chapter in such a vibrant community that aligns well with our company culture and are so thankful to the Commonwealth of Virginia and Fairfax County for their support.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Fairfax County to secure the project and will support JDSAT’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.

“JDSAT’s decision to expand its operations in Fairfax County shows that Virginia is a strong, reliable business partner,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “The Commonwealth is a top state for tech talent that offers the location, infrastructure, and robust workforce that attract companies like JDSAT, and I congratulate all the partners involved on this expansion.”

JDSAT, Inc. provides a broad range of technology development, data analysis, and research-driven consulting services for commercial entities and government agencies.

“Congratulations to JDSAT for growing in Fairfax County,” added Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “We thank you for your continued investment and your deep involvement within our community. It is our honor to support your success and celebrate your impact here in Fairfax County.”
