SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Northrop Grumman and Juno Technologies have signed a two-year U.S. Department of Defense Mentor-Protege agreement.
Under the agreement, Northrop will mentor Juno Technologies in areas such as business development, foreign military sales and International Traffic in Arms Regulations and development of business proposals.
"We are committed to advancing dynamic and creative small businesses and see the mentor-protege program as a unique opportunity for us to help Juno enhance its company presence and business opportunities," said Dave Wegmann, CANES program director for Northrop Grumman.
CANES stands for the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services program, a U.S. Navy endeavor to streamline and update shipboard networks for enhanced interoperability and affordability. Juno Technologies is a teammate on Northrop's CANES work.
Juno Technologies is a woman-owned small business that focuses on the application and adaptation of commercial off-the-shelf products for the U.S. military's information technology needs.
The Defense Department's Mentor-Protege program was created to help small businesses establish long-term relationships with major defense contractors and boost participation in federal subcontracts.
Juno Technologies has headquarters in Florida.
