Integral relocating

Integral Systems Inc., a provider of software for command and control systems for satellites, has announced plans to move its corporate headquarters from Lanham in Prince George's County to Columbia next year, bringing more than 200 jobs to the area.

The company, founded in 1982, operates at three locations in the United States and one in France. Its new headquarters, under construction, is in Gateway Exchange, a three-building complex being developed by Corporate Office Properties Trust in Columbia Gateway Business Park.

Along with four wholly-owned subsidiaries, Integral Systems has supported more than 205 satellite missions, ranging from communications to scientific exploration and meteorological research.

"We worked with them to convince them that Howard County was an ideal location for a company on the move," said Richard W. Story, chief executive officer of Howard County Economic Development Authority.

Girl Power funds

The Maryland Space Business Roundtable, an organization encouraging the growth and development of aerospace-related business in Maryland, donated $1,000 to the Women's Giving Circle of Howard County. The money will support the second Girl Power STEM career expo, a program introducing middle and high school girls to professions in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The 2009 career expo will be held March 1 at the Kossiakoff Center at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in North Laurel. About 400 girls and their parents attended the first STEM event, held Feb. 10 at APL.

The Women's Giving Circle is a community of women philanthropists addressing the needs of women and girls in Howard County.
