Management Sciences Inc., Albuquerque

In more evidence about how the military industrial complex dominates New Mexico, even indirectly, an Associated Press story from the Albuquerque Journal talks about a million dollar contract to Management Sciences Inc.  The Albuquerque-based company won a $1.5 million contract to build “smarter black boxes” for military aircraft.

MSI will build Digital Data Download (D3) systems for the Navy’s F-18 fighters, all 15000 of them.  They were tapped to build the black box through the Naval Air Systems Command.

In a hint of the military’s growing desire for microelectronics it describes the new black box, the D3 “uses computers and smart sensors about the width of a human hair integrated throughout an airplane to constantly monitor systems.”  MSI subcontracts with Honeywell to build the black boxes, and eventually will work with them to commercialize this and other products.

Okay, as the subtitle states, this is a notebook from what I call a New Mexico diaspora (look up diaspora if you are asking). I was a former resident of New Mexico, now living elsewhere, but New Mexico is still my homeland. To get more in touch with your homeland one must be away from it. This is my attempt to understand it. I was a former anti-militarism activist in the Albuquerque area. Still believe that United Snakes militarism is the greatest threat to the world, as do the majority of the worlds population. Uncovered much information about the ties in New Mexico, but never processed it all. This blog is an attempt to do that. Also hope it may come of use to others with similar interests.
