That information is kind of old, but now I know at least where the rumor that EG&G doesn't do security at Groom Lake started.
I used to work for EG&G. The company had two "themes," for lack of a better word. One was electronic components and the other government services.
When you read about EG&G on the net being sold, the issue is the company was broken up and sold to various companies. For instance, Perkin-Elmer
bought their optics divisions and dropped EG&G moniker. I believe the government services are now owned by URS.
I did a post a while ago about the old EG&G credit union, of which I used to be a member. It was bought out as well.
If you live in Clark County, you can join and maybe meet a spook or two in the lobby.
Probably too much is made of EG&Gs connection to Area 51. If anything, their importance is much more related to the Nevada Test Site. There probably
hasn't been a critical (as opposed to subcritical) test done at the NTS without some EG&G involvment. EG&G made the triggers for nuclear weapons.
