Green Hills Software
Major Defense Acquisition Programs
The Pentagon’s 2009 Budget Request Summary Justification provides a wishlist for $184 billion worth of "Major Weapons Systems." The "highest profile" of these programs, i.e., the most expensive ones are "designated as Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAP)." Green Hills Software is one of nine "Secure Canada 2008" exhibitors that are involved in one or more these top MDAPs. For details, see "The Role of 'Secure Canada 2008' Exhibitors in America's MDAPs."
