Competitors The Defense Industry is undoubtedly wide growing and most if not all of the companies which compete for defense contracts have had large increases in business in the past 10 years.

How To Beat The Competition Maintain the effectiveness and innovation of our technologies and research and development programs. Maintain ability to offer better program performance than our competitors at a lower cost. Maintain ability to retain our employees and hire new ones, particularly those who have U.S. Government security clearances; and the capabilities of our facilities, equipment and personnel to undertake the programs for which we compete.

3L Risk Factors Large Amount of Debt Significant level of debt due to many recent acquisitions Ability to pay back debt depends on future revenues Rely on US Government Entities End of year 2006, approx. 1900 contracts with estimated values over $1 Million
