About ARS – ARS is an acute and potentially life threatening illness caused by exposure to ionizing radiation over a very short period of time. About Neutropenia – Neutropenia is a severe decrease in neutrophil cell counts in the blood. Neutropenia is a common side effect of chemotherapeutic treatments for many forms of cancer, including breast cancer, lung cancer, lymphomas and leukemias. Neutropenic patients are at increased risk of contracting bacterial infections, some of which can be life threatening. Further, and most importantly, neutropenic patients may receive reduced or delayed chemotherapy treatment, which can result in cancer progression. Severe neutropenia is also an early, potentially life threatening feature of the hematopoietic syndrome of ARS (h-ARS).”

Cangene has..submitted a bid to develop a therapeutic for treating ARS under a request for proposal (RFP) issued March 13, 2009 by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Cangene’s submission under the RFP specifies its intention to develop MAXY-G34 for the ARS indication.”

Titan Corp.
“In recent years, like many other defense companies, Titan has diversified through a series of acquisitions, 10 since 2000 alone. The firm got into the linguistic business in the wake of 9/11 by acquiring Fairfax, Va.-based BTG Inc., which had a $10 million military contract dating back to 1999. When the demand for linguists grew after the United States launched the war on terror, so did the size of Titan’s contracts.
…Titan was hired by the US military in 2003 to provide translation services, receiving $112.1 million. This accounted for 96 percent of its total revenue for 2003, according to its annual report. The company had 12,000 employees worldwide, with annual revenues in the neighborhood of $2 billion and was traded on the NYSE as TTN.
…Titan received a competitive contract with a potential value of $163.9 million from the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command on behalf of the U.S. Northern Command for the US Joint Task Force Civil Support on January 12, 2005…
Titan announced on February 14, 2006, they had received a “$350 million, five-year, multiple award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) task-based contract” from the Department of Homeland Security to support the National Exercise Program.” http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Titan_Corp.
“On March 2, 2005, the company admitted to illegally providing $2 million to the 2001 re-election campaign of President Mathieu Kérékou of Benin, and agreed to pay $28 million in penalties. Titan pled guilty and paid the largest penalty under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in history for bribery and filing false tax returns….Titan Corp briefly partnered with SkyWay Communications and owned stock in several other corporations related to SkyWay, whose former DC9 aircraft, N900SA, was captured in April 2006 with 5.5 tons of cocaine on board. Investigation of the cocaine bust by Mad Cow Morning News has led to the discovery that Titan had employed Makram Chams, a Lebanese national, who owned a Kwik-Check convenience store in Venice, Florida where the biggest overseas money transfer to the terrorists, $70,000 from the UAE, was sent, according to the testimony of FBI agents during the 9/11 Commission hearings.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titan_Corp.
“Headquartered in New York City, L-3 Communications is a leading provider of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems, secure communications systems, aircraft modernization, training and government services.  Its customers include the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, selected U.S. Government intelligence agencies and aerospace prime contractors.  L-3 Communications completed its acquisition of The Titan Corporation in July 2005.” http://posts.same.org/emerald/firms/titan.htm

Dec 31, 2009 – ” The US Transportation Security Administration yesterday issued a $165 million contract to purchase whole-body imagers for airport security checkpoints from L-3 Communications, five days after a Christmas day bomb scare on a Delta Air Lines A330 as it neared landing in Detroit.” http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2009/12/31/336694/tsa-issues-whole-body-scanner-contract-to-l-3.html
