Abstract

Twin brothers Geoff and Mike Howe received a contract from the U.S. Army to build a prototype of the Ripsaw--an unmanned, off-terrain vehicle with quick acceleration that they developed. Many Maine businesses like Howe and Howe Technologies count the U.S. military as a major customer, with $1.1 billion in defense contracts going to Maine businesses last year. With a selection of Maine defense contractors, details on Maine's history with the defense industry, and a blueprint for becoming a federal contractor.
