My wife just accepted a partnership position (M.D.) with a neurological firm in Warrenton and we are moving there in August. I work here at NASA's Johnson Space Center in the Test & Enginnering dept. And my company does not have any transfers available (Jacobs Technology). Does anyone know of any space/aerospace/government or engineering companies within commuting distance?

Thanks!

It really depends on your definition of commuting. There are a ton of government contractors all throughout NoVa and the NRO is located in Chantilly. Lockheed has a facility in Manassas but I have no idea if they would have jobs in your particular fields. Best of luck to you.

There is a NASA facility in Greenbelt, Maryland. Not exactly commuting distance from Warrenton, but if you lived in the DC metro area, it might be do-able.

There are MANY aerospace defense contractors in northern Virginia. None of them is in or near Warrenton -- most are in Tyson's Corner (Fairfax County) or the Dulles Corridor.

Thank you very much, I understand that Boeing and Lockheed have plants in Manassas. Is that true; I can't seem to find them in my research.

Yes, Lockheed Martin is on Godwin Drive in Manassas. I don't know about Boeing.

There is a BAE right next to the Lockheed site in Manassas.
