The mentor-protege relationship was formalized during a signing ceremony on May 21.

Under the 36-month agreement approved by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, Northrop Grumman will mentor Davidson Technologies in several areas, including cybersecurity and information assurance, systems engineering, integrated logistics support, ISO 9000 standards, strategic planning, corporate policies, marketing, contracts and subcontracts, and human resources and accounting systems.

"Davidson Technologies has been a strong contributor to the missile defense community and our JRDC team," said Kelley Zelickson, vice president of air and missile defense systems for Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "We're committed to advancing Davidson's viability and competitiveness to become an even more valuable part of our supplier base."

Davidson Technologies, a woman-owned small business, is a technology services company dedicated to providing innovative engineering, technical and management solutions for defense, aerospace and commercial customers.

"We are excited to have been chosen by Northrop Grumman to participate in the mentor-protege program in pursuit of technology development for the Missile Defense Agency," said Dorothy Davidson, chief executive officer of Davidson Technologies. "This represents an important continuation of a long standing professional relationship between our two companies. It has been an honor and privilege to work with Northrop Grumman in the past, and Davidson Technologies looks forward to an even stronger, mutually beneficial partnership in the future."

Northrop Grumman will also work with Alabama Technology Network, a part of the Alabama Community College System and the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, to help Davidson Technologies develop and implement a quality management system certified to ISO 9000 standards.
