Re: Good job Arizona!
Aside from this gent's list of previous employers, I kept thinking of the Honeywell Aerospace folks in Phoenix. Lots of engineering being done there. They used to be a supplier I worked with when I was dealing closely with the future of the M1 Abrams (in addition to Stryker).
But then we officially chose a competitor of theirs for a major new component. We chose wrong and paid dearly. It took lots of time and effort (and money**), but my colleagues who were even deeper into that crap than I was got the issues mostly resolved.
** LOTS of time and money wasted, just like any proper defense contract. Your tax dollars at work.
