Where is the EG&G defense contractor, I heard that his division was sold to the Carlyle Group and was eventually acquired by URS Corporation, right? EG&G allegedly was and has a terminal at the McCarran Airport to transport government workers to Groom Lake Base and other detachments at the Janet airlines. If EG&G was sold to the URS Corporation, who runs currently these airlines? Like camo dudes,professedly these guys also worked for EG&G at the Groom Lake Base. To this day, camo dudes still employed by the same company?

EG&G was owned by The Carlyle Group from 1999 to 2001. It was acquired by URS Corp in Aug 2002, becoming a division of URS.

In Jan 2010 URS decided that secondary corporate brands would no longer be used, including Washington Group, Lear Sieglar and EG&G. EG&G is now called URS Federal Services. It still provides the current services as before name change.

Heres how it works. The camo dudes now took over. And the new lower down employees have no idea. The kind of secrets the camo dudes keep.

All I know is that EG&G optoelectronics used to make flashlamps for lasers and fast trigger systems for nuclear bombs. They charged alot ($225) for a 3" arc length flash lamp, I think they seperated the mill stuff from the public stuff when they became PerkinElmer.

EG&G was a collection of small technology companies. Mostly systems and components, but some government services. I think EG&G got the Groom business because they were all over the Nevada Test Site anyway, and had the security clearances. No use exposing the Groom operation to another private company.

To elaborate, I think a great number of companies could have done Groom security. EG&G was on the NTS due to their technical skills (Rapidtronic cameras for instance), and got the security contract by default.

The general public couldn't differentiate between a division makes heat sink (Wakefield) or EG&G Measurements (NTS). When I worked for EG&G, we got two bomb scares a year, even though we weren't making anything nuclear at the division.
