Military R & D, Supply and Development Firms
R & D for Naval highspeed VLSI asynchronous and low-power
TechSystems. Just about everything. I'd buy this stock!
Aerospace makes helicopter-towed dipping sonar, flight radar, etc.
- Arinc. Air-to-ground
communications and related systems, positioning systems, etc.
- Boeing Autonetics and Missile
- Booz, Allen and Hamilton. Technology,
engineering and management services. A big and reputable outfit.
- Cordant, an Information
Technology company. They provide support for private and government
- General Dynamics Land Systems
"designs, manufactures and supports armored weapon systems and electronic
products for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps and a number of allied
- Hughes Aircraft Company is " an
integrated defense electronics and information systems company, is a world
leader in design, development and production of high technology systems for
scientific, military and commercial applications."
- INRI. "The leader in
Battle-Management Software." Military Command and Control, Satellite
Tracking, Electronic Warfare, Route Generation and Interference Avoidance,
Military Communications Processor, Unit Scheduling, Meteorology and
Environmentals, Secure Intelligence Systems, Harbor Tracking.
- Litton Computer Services.
Datacenter and network services, desktop and professional services. Their
professional-services division seems to be dedicated to the process of
downsizing and modernizing systems. There's big money in that if you're know
of any obscure Federal agencies stuck with antiquated legacy systems that
could all be replaced with one Linux Box.
- Lockheed-Martin. The merged
forces of Lockheed and Martin-Marietta have created one of the world's
largest and most diversified corporations. If they ever try to tell you
they're only doing what's best for America, rememmber that these guys have
their fingers in so many pies that for the last twenty years, America has
largely done what's best for Martin-Marietta. If you forward your mail, they
know where you are. If some
intelligence agency wants intel on you, Martin
supplied it and maintains and operates the databases. If absolutely
despicable things have to happen to you simply because someone in Martin
thought they didn't like the way you dress in your off-work time, rest
assured that there's nothing even the
FBI can do to stop them. L-M runs their
information systems and can feed them whatever they like.
- GEC-Marconi Hazeltine "is a long time technical leader in the design, development,
manufacture and support of defense electronics equipment and systems. We
have been a major DoD supplier for more than 75 years. Our long history in
military communications, avionics, navigation and missile systems is
highlighted by the significant number of industry achievements that we
continue to demonstrate in the avionics community. "
- McDonnell-Douglas. I like
these guys. No particular reason, except for all of those really neat
fighter jets and avionics upon which American military might depends. Also,
I think their Delta Clipper (X-33) re-usable VTOL Space Access system is the
futre of space access. I would recommend that the forward-looking technical
innovation and research investment communities invest heavily in this
technology. Check out this innovative digital video page.
- Metron, Inc., offers a variety of
services and is intensely involved in mathematical modelling and simulation.
Take a look at their Projects Page.
