SAN DIEGO, April 5 (UPI) -- U.S. company Northrop Grumman reached a milestone for its Small Business Program for Engineering Experimentation and Deployment after successful demonstrations.

Northrop Grumman says four companies participating in its SPEED small business mentoring collaboration program recently conducted successful command and control demonstrations through its open systems network infrastructure.

Company officials say the demonstrations, conducted by Beatty and Company Computing, CenterBeam Juno Technologies and Syzygy Technologies, verify Northrop Grumman's third-party technologies deployment initiative into major defense programs.

"The purpose of SPEED is to assist small businesses in developing and deploying technology into current and future programs," Mike Twyman, Northrop Grumman Information Systems Integrated Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence Systems vice president, said in a statement.

"By creating an environment that fosters small business innovation, we broaden our network of idea factories.
