Subject: Interesting info...
I thought you might be interested in this info on some of the companies involved in this article. I think you are familiar with this person's investigations from way back when...he's posted prolifically on 9/11 in the past. There's also much more on Ptech somewhere in the blog, there's a lot there.
9/11: A Revolution in Military Affairs
The National Reconaissance Office, Mitre Corporation, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, and Booz, Allen, & Hamilton
August 8, 2001: Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named head of NIMA (National Imagery and Mapping Agency - now the National Geophysical Intelligence Agency)
From Biographies: Federal Government: Civilian and Military (link no longer works)
James R. Clapper named Director of National Imagery and Mapping Agency. Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and Director of Central Intelligence George J. Tenet jointly announced the appointment of James R. Clapper Jr. as the new director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) on August 8, 2001. Clapper, who will become the first civilian head of the agency, succeeds Army Lt. Gen. James C. King who has headed NIMA since March 1998 and will be retiring from the Army later this year. Clapper was chosen for the position owing to his grasp of intelligence matters and his knowledge of the needs of NIMA's principal users, the combat commanders. The director has more than 37 years experience in intelligence, working at all levels and phases of the field. He retired from the Air Force in September 1995 as a lieutenant general after a four-year tour as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Since his retirement, he has served success ively as executive vice president of Vredenburg, a systems acquisition services company headquartered in Reston, Va.; executive director, military intelligence for Booz, Allen & Hamilton, McLean, Va.; and recently as vice president, director of intelligence programs for SRA, International, Fairfax, Va. He was a senior member of the Downing Assessment Task Force, which investigated the terrorist bombing of Khobar Towers in June 1996. NIMA, established in October 1996, is responsible for the collection of imagery through the use of both national and commercial assets. It advises others responsible for collecting imagery using theater and tactical reconnaissance assets. NIMA produces timely imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial information in support of the nation's military forces, policymakers, and civil customers.
From 911 Review:
On September 19th, 2000, Govexec.com describes a "never before seen" level of cooperation between the FBI, the CIA, and the Pentagon, that is expected to be involved in "Project Trailblazer"," an initiative to develop a 21st-century "signals intelligence" system that can crack new encryption software, hard-to-tap fiber-optic cables, and cellular phone transmissions" and able "to fight terrorism", referring already to Bin Laden and his"millennium plot" ("Y2K terrorist operation").
In 2001, the Trailblazer program was developed under the order of the NRO, with sub contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and took partly place in the wing of the Pentagon, which was later officially hit by "Flight77".
Booz is a high rank "member" of military and intelligence. They're also Corporate Member of the National Military Intelligence Association.
On August 8, 2001, two days after Bush received a new PDB with a clear warning on Bin Laden; Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named James R. Clapper as head of NIMA (the National Imagery and Mapping Agency - the 'eyes of America').
Clapper, leads this project for the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office), which at the same time not only develops new satellite capabilities (A NRO payload launched into space on September 8, 2001), but also worked on a terror drill for Sep11th (9 AM), crashing planes into the headquarters, as later confirmed by NRO Officer John Fulton.
When BoozAllen started to work for the NRO, it was well known, that they also had been a client of Blessed Relief, the charity said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden. However, this seemed to be not a problem for the NRO.
On September 11th, BoozAllen Hamilton lost 3 employees in the Pentagon : Gerald Fisher, Terence Lynch, and Ernest Willcher. They apparently worked for the government on Trailblazer 1 (which included also another sub cover project, called "Soldier Benefits Tool").
In the same building, Scott Powell and Edmond Young, working for BTG Inc, died on the same day. In April 2001 BTG aquired RPI, which was working on exercises to respond to possible chemical or biological terrorist attacks.
Only 9 days after Sep11th, it was reason enough that BTG announced to be aquired by Titan Corporation.
It was also Titan, who provided their disinfection systems to Post Offices in October 2001, after anthrax was discovered in mailings to members of Congress and journalists.
But the Titan Connection with the department of the Pentagon, which was working on Trailblazer was older than September 2001.
Another "original NSA-plan" for "Trailblazer" was from 2 April 2001, then described as a "program to develop analytic capabilities to meet the challenge of rapidly evolving, modern telecommunications", prime contracts were awarded to Booz Allen & Hamilton, Inc. , Lockheed Martin Corporation and TRW.
Trailblazer was much more than just an advanced "spy and satellite program". Already in September 2000, SpaceNewsFeed revealed, that Trailblazer is part of the "Trans Orbital Lunar GPS Experiment".
TransOrbital's private, robotic 2001 TrailBlazer's prime mission is to return HDTV video from lunar orbit for use as commercial products. The privately held company is conducting the 2001 TrailBlazer Project as a for-profit Space Venture and will produce various video and other products.
As announced, the "2001 TrailBlazer spacecraft will not rely upon GPS data for its navigation at the moon, but instead will use established means of navigation".
It is not clear, how long before Sep 2001, Titan Corporation was connected with Trailblazer, but one public document mentioned them in March 2001. Probably Titan was back and forth involved with many other sub contractors they used, to keep in strong touch with the program.
On June 14th, 2001, Logicon TASC, a Northrop Grumman company, has won a $75 million contract with the Pentagon.
But already two months earlier, in March 2001, Logicon TASC announced it had won another "five-year, $57 million contract" (possibly the same) "with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer".
The Logicon TASC team included a long list of sub contractors, among them Veridian, e-voting specialist Electronic Data Systems Corp, SRS Technologies and Titan Systems Corp.
By now, it appears odd, that this high tech spy team around Booz, the NRO and the Pentagon, was not able to protect themselves on Sep11th. Neither an early evacuation was arranged or the "observation" of the "hijacked planes" had been recognised in time.
One of another Trailblazer partner, TRW and their subsidiary, Peter Peterson's Blackstone Group, had similar "problems". In October 2000, they obtained the mortgage of WTC 7, a building which then turned into a military complex, with offices on the 23rd floor by the CIA and DoD.
However, the CIA wasn't able to protect the building on Sep11th. More odd, the complete building collapsed at 5:25 PM on that day under yet unexplained reasons. NIST, asked by INN World Report in February 2004 in New York, answered, they would look into these circumstances.
The NSA originally selected one of the Pentagon's top Private Military Contractrors, SAIC-led Digital Network Intelligence (DNI) Enterprise team that includes Northrop Grumman Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., The Boeing Company , Computer Sciences Corporation (later owner of DynCorp) and SAIC wholly-owned subsidiary Telcordia Technologies to contribute to the modernization of the NSA's signals intelligence capabilities.
In October 2002, SAIC officially announced the contract award from the National Security Agency (NSA) to be the provider of the technology demonstration platform (TDP) phase of the TRAILBLAZER program. At that time, it wasn't well known for the public, that the Program was already developed since 2 years.
The myth, the Pentagon was victim of incompetence and negligence on Sep11th, does still circulate around.
Since Mid 2002, Booz Allen Hamilton (also another specialist of anti-terror drills) has ex-CIA and PNAC member James Woolsey as one of their directors, the other is Dale Watson (ex-FBIHQ), who was recently accused by many different people as part of the 9/11 Cover-up: ex-FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds or Richard Clarke but also, less implicating ex-FBI Thomas Pickard.
Titan profits enormously from their NSA connection. In November 2002, the NSA selected Titan as prime contractor "for the Enterprise Architecture and Decision Support (EADS) program having a potential value of $533 million over a 24-month base period and five options."
Meanwhile, the Trailblazer program developed into another experimental and mysterious level. In May 2004, The MITRE Corporation, working together with the DMSO (Defense Modeling and Simulation Office), describes it now as "simulations to support a specific example experiment. The example experiment was modeled on a J-6-sponsored LIVEX that was planned and conducted in parallel, and largely independently of the "Trailblazer" effort."
What follow are snips from previous research of mine:
Carl Hammond, 37, was a passenger on board the hijacked United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He also was a physicist for Mitre Corporation, a company that peddles Global Hawk (remote piloting) technology. The strongest case has been made that Global Hawk was employed in electronically hijacking the planes in question regarding September 11. Warren Buffet heads Mitre Corp. as well as Berkshire-Hathaway and NetJets, not to mention BizJets.
The NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) demonstrated its new satellite capabilities (NRO payload launched into space on September 8, 2001) and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA - "the eyes of America") gained a new director one month prior to that fateful day. Considering all of this, one gets a pretty clear picture of where all those 'Star Wars' dollars went. James R. Clapper is the man named to head NIMA and he comes from Booz, Allen, & Hamilton which is a client for Blessed Relief, the charity said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden.
Someone wrote me: "I noticed some times ago that the company Booz had lost 3 employees in the Pentagon : Gerald Fisher, Terence Lynch, and Ernest Willcher. They had apparently to work for the government on Trailblazer 1, a system required to spy communications..
"Scott Powell and Edmond Young, members of BTG Inc, died in Pentagon too. RPI, acquired by BTG Inc in april 2001, awarded $11.2 Million Contract by Department of Justice : under the contract, RPI will support exercises to help prepare state and lo cal officials to respond to possible chemical or biological terrorist attacks... They did the job so good that BTG Inc was acquired by Titan Corp on september 20, 2001, a probable coincidence.."
The following snip was taken from a Google search a few years ago (Mitre has since removed it from their website and when they did, so called 9/11 researchers began to demand proof that Buffet had evern been associated with Mitre - can you say damage control?):
MITRE Globetrotter in Omaha, Nebraska... United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM for short) Headquarters on Offutt AirForce Base ... Warren Buffett, the second richest man in the country (next to Bill ... www.mitre.org/news/gt/omaha/omahaltr.shtml

The following is snipped from Xymphora:
A number (it hasn't been reported exactly how many but it was called 'a small group of business leaders') of CEO's from New York, including at least one from the WTC, were attending a breakfast meeting at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska on the morning of September 11, guests of Warren Buffett (isn't he the same guy who has guaranteed that the United States will suffer a nuclear attack by terrorists?). Offutt Air Force Base is the base that Bush flew to on September 11, supposedly becau se it is the headquarters of the E-4B, the aircraft which is the "command, control and communications center to direct U.S. forces, execute emergency war orders and coordinate actions by civil authorities". He wanted to be on the scene in person, particularly as there was fear that the terrorists were in possession of the secret codes by which they could electronically impersonate Bush in giving military commands (interesting how we have heard nothing more of that story). So how much of a coincidence is it that this meeting with Warren Buffett was at the same air force base that Bush flew to (apparently Bush intended to fly directly to Offutt, but had to stop for refuelling in Louisiana)? Is it possible that Buffett's invitation to a bunch of 'important' New York City executives for a breakfast meeting at an air force base in Nebraska (just think about how weird that is!) was an attempt to save the lives of the invitees?
The following is sni pped from http://www.mitre.org/
(it may no longer be there plus - one warning: Mitre helped to develop the internet and makes software for the IRS so visit their site at your own risk):
MITRE is a not-for-profit national resource that provides systems engineering, research and development, and information technology support to the government. It operates federally funded research and development centers for the DOD, the FAA, and the IRS, with principal locations in Bedford, Massachusetts, and Northern Virginia.
MITRE is supporting DARPA and the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate (program agent) on the Affordable Moving Surface Target Engagement (AMSTE). The AMSTE program is developing technologies to affordably engage moving surface targets such as tanks, tactical ballistic missile transporters, and small boats from long ranges and in all weather conditions.
MITRE is experimenting with the integration of advanced Internet technologies into the ISR sensor ground station. The ISR Information Service (ISRIS) Mission Oriented Investigation and Experimentation (MOIE) will develop a prototype information portal that provides ISR sensor data and ground station service accessibility to the battlespace internets: the Intelinks, the Air Force Joint Battl espace Infosphere (JBI), the Navy Network Centric Warfare, and the Army First Digital Division. In FY01, the project will demonstrate the ISRIS concept using the Global Hawk UAV platform. Global Hawk is an excellent platform for this pathfinding research since it has no established TPED support systems today, and it's multiple sensor data types Electro-Optic (EO), Infra-Red (IR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) make it an especially rich information source.
Pathfinding research they say? Sounds oddly like traiblazing (i.e. Trailblazer).
The following is snipped from Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle Technology:
After September eleventh, UCAV technology took a big step. Although not confirmed by the Pentagon, it is reported that an RQ-1 Predator spy plane equipped with hellfire missiles flew over Afghanistan and conducted the first successful remote-controlled bombing raids in history (Bowmaster). The operators remained safely on the ground out of harms way.
Boeing, with backing from DARPA, is on the cutting edge with the development of the X-45, which is scheduled for flight test in early 2002. With an estimated range of 500 to 1,000 miles and a payload of 1,000 to 3,000 pounds, Boeing intends to increase effectiveness and survivability of manned combat aircraft by sending their UCAV in first to clear out radar, antiaircraft sights, and surface to air missile (SAM) sights. With two prototypes already complete, they are moving forward with their vision of air combat tomorrow.
Realize of course, that to leak anything but where we were at ten or more years ago with these technologies would be a violation of national security and probably prosecutable.
A snip from a site that no longer exists:
Houston Associates, Inc., located in most large Federal government engineering centers, is a leading edge engineering technologies company, that has been involved with a wide variety of DoD Information Technologies requirements for more than 15 years. HAI has provided outstanding engineering capabilities and transitional development services to a wide range of clients.

Each is supported with engineering capabilities from Network (MAN&WAN), ATM requirements (Red and Black systems), Mission Control Support Element Engineering Services employing leading edge Information Technologies for the UAV-Predator, UAV-Global Hawk, and other relate systems. HAI supports and is under contract to provide engineering services to the NASA Manned Space Flight Program at Marshall and Johnson Space Flight Centers. HAI is also doing network site work at Birk Test Center, Edward AFB, California. Our commercial client base included Raytheon, Sprint, Lockheed Space, an Lockheed SkunkWorks, to name a few.
The following is snipped from 2600, a hacking publication:
"Despite the U.S. spending millions to defend satellites from its own high-powered laser weapons, many of these computers in orbit still obey commands without authenticating their source."
Remember, US space stations experienced disruption of their satellite communications on that day. SOMEONE had access to highly sensitive frequencies of transmission.
"The devastating terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, New York and the Pentagon have shocked and horrified us all. The attacks also caused disruption for satellite and space companies across the USA." [SOURCE]
