    (The article is written for New Hampshire readers, so some of references
    may not be clear at first. Concord, Manchester and Nashua refer to
    cities in New Hampshire. Sanders Associates is/was a large electronics developer headquartered in Nashua; at the time I worked there main
    development areas were counter-intelligence equipment, airline hardware
    and software (the 720 may ring a bell), and Avis Rent-a-Car. Sanders
    was later purchased by Lockheed and they eventually sold it to BAE.)
