We did a lot of questionable searches on information relating to individuals that I've always found to be crossing the line of ethics. We weren't just scouring for MAP prices or counterfeit products.
In the early 1990's the array, now called MERLIN, was extended to include a new 32m telescope at Cambridge and other improvements made to to significantly its sensitivity
Merger talks between Lockheed Corporation and Martin Marietta began in March 1994, with the companies announcing their $10 billion planned merger on August 30, 1994. The deal was finalized on March 15, 1995 when the two companies' shareholders approved the merger. The segments of the two companies not retained by the new company formed the basis for the present L-3 Communications, a mid-size defense contractor in its own right.
L-3 (named for Frank Lanza, Robert LaPenta, and Lehman Brothers) was formed in 1997 from the purchase of ten former business units of Lockheed Corporation when Lockheed merged in 1996 with Martin Marietta; the ten units were those which the new Lockheed Martin was uninterested in owning.
L-3 has continued to grow since then through numerous acquisitions to become one of the top ten U.S. government contractors.
L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: LLL) is a company that supplies command and control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C3ISR) systems and products, avionics and ocean products, training devices and services, instrumentation, space and navigation products. Its customers include the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Government intelligence agencies, NASA, aerospace contractors and commercial telecommunications and wireless customers.
SAIC (Science Applications International Corporation) NYSE: SAI is a FORTUNE 500 scientific, engineering and technology applications company headquartered in the United States with numerous federal, state, and private sector clients. It works extensively with the United States Department of Defense, the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the United States Intelligence Community, including the National Security Agency, as well as other U.S. Government civil agencies and selected commercial markets.
In January 1999, new SAIC consultant Steven Hatfill and his collaborator, SAIC vice president Joseph Soukup, commissioned William C. Patrick (a retired leading figure in the old U.S. bioweapons program) to report on the possibilities of terrorist anthrax mailings in the United States. (There had been a spate of hoax anthrax mailings in the previous two years.) Barbara Hatch Rosenberg said that the report was commissioned "under a CIA contract to SAIC". However, SAIC said Hatfill and Soukup commissioned it internally—there was no outside client.
Patrick produced his 28-page report in February 1999. Some subsequently saw it as a "blueprint" for the 2001 anthrax attacks. The report suggested the maximum amount of anthrax powder—2.5 grams—that could be put in an envelope without producing a suspicious bulge. This was just a little more than the actual amounts—2 grams each—in the letters sent to Senators Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy. But the report also suggested that a terrorist might produce a spore concentration of 50 billion spores per gram. This was only one-twentieth of the actual concentration—1 trillion spores per gram—in the letters sent to the senators.

As a publicly-traded company, Intersections, Inc., the parent corp. files quarterly and annual statements that are storehouses of information. These are public records. Try EDGAR or Lexis/Nexis, Dun & Bradstreet, and similar sources for access.
I do not believe this is an authentic inquiry. More likely a "fishing expedition." Are you looking for a particular member, or a particular response?
If you were serious, you wouldn't post such statements or such a request on ATS or any other forum.
This thread is extremely suspicious; too bizarrely ill advised, and inadvisable, to be real. I'm staying far away from this crap.
