22. "What is (sic) Miter?"
Edited on Wed Aug-03-05 09:02 AM by MercutioATC
"Miter is a large company that does specialized technology for defense and intelligence."


Well, sort of...

http://www.mitre.org /

Mitre is a technology company that does many different things. Defense and intelligence is one small part of what they do.

My dealings with Mitre through the FAA had them modeling different air traffic scenarios based on changing preferential flight routes...pretty mundane stuff. Example:

One of the authors, Thor Abrahamsen, was one of the Mitre people I worked with.

I just don't want anybody to get the impression that Mitre is some defense-related company that just does hush-hush projects for the government.
