Duke’s legacy

— The United States Navy is still using software sold to it by ADCS, the Poway outfit founded by Brent Wilkes, convicted of bribery, fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering and sentenced in February to a 12-year federal prison term for his role in the Randy “Duke” Cunningham scandal. So reports a consultant working at the Navy’s Seattle shipyards, who called to ask whether the company is still in the software business. The software package in question, called Prime Vector, is used by the Navy in the conversion of scanned-in engineering drawings to the so-called vector format used by computers for storing graphical records. The consultant, who requested that his name not be used, notes that the package is the best available. “I remember they came up here about ten years ago with a congressman on a tour, but I can’t remember his name. They already had the contract by then.”
