This was sent to me today.  This is troubling.  I do not believe this company can be trusted with more mundane things such as making safe airplanes, let alone surveillance of American citizens.  Anyone have any more information on this?

DRT has approximately 370 employees, with the majority located in Germantown. The acquisition, announced Nov. 14, 2008, is part of Boeing’s strategy to expand its presence in the growing intelligence market.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. DRT will operate within Boeing Integrated Defense Systems’ Network & Space Systems unit.
