I recently stumbled across references to MITRE Corporation, which I had never heard of before. I was rather stunned to discover how deeply they are
entrenched in our military and intelligence networks. Other than an offhanded connection to "The Jason Group" and MITRE being a front for
government research, I couldn't find much about it on ATS. Although, the "front for government research" label seems quite correct.
MITRE is rather open with its web presence, and there's a great deal to be learned from the site. Refreshing, given the recent government trend
toward information blackouts: www.mitre.org...
It appears that the government is now contracting out a fair amount of jobs that used to be federal. MITRE itself has 5700 employees, and there's
more than 300 openings posted. Take a glance through their job listings. For example, they're hiring Terrorism Intelligence Analysts, and they have
openings for "Infrastructure Protection Engineers".
It looks like they've got contractors out at most of the intel agencies. They freely admit having 60+ people at the NRO office. MITRE also has its
hand in quantum computing and cryptography, technology for GPS tracking of cell phones, and satellite communications.
Anybody have any more background on MITRE? Have I just had my head in the sand all these years, causing me to never hear about them?
