Camgian Microsystems Expands Starkville, Mississippi, Operations Center
In March, the company was awarded a $6.9 million contract with the U.S. Army to develop a next-generation intelligent system for detecting and defeating the growing unmanned aerial threats to U.S. military forces.
“We greatly appreciate the support of the state of Mississippi and the Mississippi Development Authority as we continue to grow our business. It is our objective to recruit Mississippi’s best and brightest engineers to tackle some of the world’s most challenging problems in national security, finance and industrial operations,” noted Camgian Chairman and CEO Gary D. Butler.
The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) has certified Camgian for the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is available for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands.
“Camgian is a golden example of a high-tech Mississippi company doing great things here at home and around the world. Some of the nation’s brightest engineers are located here in our great state, the Silicon Valley of the South. I know Camgian and its employees will continue putting Mississippi on the map by delivering some of the most sought-after sensors and artificial intelligence products to users across the globe,” said Governor Tate Reeves.
Founded in Starkville in 2006, Camgian is an award-winning developer of intelligent software systems powered by big data and artificial intelligence that drive improvements in the speed and quality of critical decisions for the U.S. military and some of the world’s leading corporations.
“In Mississippi, forward-thinking innovators and entrepreneurial companies like Camgian stay a step ahead of the competition with a workforce that is highly-skilled to take on the in-demand, high-tech jobs that are producing some of the most advanced products in the world. The work being performed by Camgian once again shines the spotlight on the sharp talent found throughout Starkville and the Golden Triangle Region,” MDA Executive Director John Rounsaville noted.
