It’s not just the procurement business that it does. There’s also a big research and development component that’s here,” said Erik Bruvold, president of National University System Institute for Policy Research, referring to a subset unit called Spawar Systems Center Pacific at Point Loma.
That unit is actually larger than Spawar headquarters and counts 4,132 civilian employees and 200 military, the agency said.
Many of Spawar’s employees are engineers, computer programmers, computer scientists, and technicians, with most pulling down far better than average salaries, Bruvold said.
