Created in 1972, Schafer Corporation began as a specialist in challenging and advanced technology development for government and industry, focusing on directed energy and electro-optics. The strength of our reputation was built on the technical excellence, dedication and teamwork of our personnel. These traits have been just as important as we have grown and expanded into a more technologically diverse company.

Today, we also provide innovative engineering and technology to the military, intelligence, DHS, NASA, new commercial space companies and other industries. We’re engaged in complex, high-level missions and programs, guiding efforts such as development, modeling, simulation, communication and technology management.

Our personnel frequently lead assessment teams and studies for government clients because of their in-depth expertise and independence of thought. They are known for providing effective and actionable recommendations to sponsors.

Schafer became an employee owned company in 1996, building to over 500 employees through organic growth and select acquisitions. Today, it is a subsidiary of Metalmark Capital Partners. We continue to grow and expand our capabilities, including information technology, cyber, robotics, network communication and emerging technologies.
