LAWTON, OK, – 9 November 2021 – Camgian is excited to announce that it will be expanding its efforts in creating the future of defense tech with its new location at the Fires Innovation Science and Technology Accelerator in Lawton-Fort Sill, OK.
Clarence Fortney, the Chairman of the FISTA Development Trust Authority says, “we are very encouraged to announce the signing of the first FISTA contract with Camgian Microsystems Corporation headquartered in Starkville, Mississippi.”
Camgian will directly support technology development for the Cross-Functional Teams of Long-Range Precision Fires (LRPF), Air & Missile Defense (AMD), and Fort Sill's FIRES Center of Excellence (FCoE).
