WILMINGTON, N.C., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Military Hardware llc announced today they received the U.S. Army's primary IDIQ award to supply the new Improved Modular Tactical Holster (IMTH), a $49 million contract spanning 5-years. This watershed contract pitted two emerging small businesses against a multi-billion-dollar global aerospace and defense giant. The little guys won.
To win the award Military Hardware partnered with Edgeworks Manufacturing to provide the G-Code XST (Extreme Service Tactical) holster with four separate mounting platforms, exceeding the Army's bid requirement. Both Military Hardware and Edgeworks are privately held small businesses located in Southeastern North Carolina.
Industry insiders credit Scott Evans, Founder and CEO of Edgeworks, as the original innovator of modular holster design. Military Hardware's Founder and CEO, F. Scott Harry, said, "A decade ago when I saw the G-Code holster, I knew it was revolutionary. I wanted to be a part of the team that brought it to market." They humbly credit the many Law Enforcement and Military personnel who have personally bought, used, inspired, and improved the products they offer.
Military Hardware specializes in marketing innovative small manufacturer's products to the Department of Defense. They constantly collaborate with manufacturing partners and customers on product development. Retired Master Sergeant (USMC) Richard Cover, VP of Sales & Product Development for Military Hardware, is on a military base somewhere almost every day of the week and regularly brings ideas in from the field. Cover said, "We are all hands-on people. We work as a team and every person, from the factory floor to the front office, cares about what we do and who we do it for: the men and women of the U.S. Military." It's clearly this great dedication to the people wearing the gear that makes their products excel.
Mr. Harry also credits the North Carolina Military Business Center, a business development entity in the North Carolina Community College System. "I've worked with the NCMBC since it's inception. Scott Dorney (Executive Director, NCMBC) has surrounded himself with knowledgeable people. Teresa Bouchonnet, in particular, has been indispensable to me."

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
