19. That arrangement is actually quite common
Prime/sub-contractors and all that. It's very common for a big company like GD to respond to and be awarded a lucrative solicitation only to outsource final design/assembly to sub-contractos. Some mom-and-pop contractors might have phenomenal products, but get squeezed by the big boys, so they sometimes have no option but to piggyback.
