California Software Geniuses during the Reagan Years

Conspiracy researchers from the 1990's may remember a few of the building blocks that went into creating what is now known as Analex. Analyzing these components is a good refresher course that shows how corporate America works hand-in-hand with the military-industrial complex and with powerful politicians who would give a helping hand to advance their own political goals and the monetary goals of those who help them get elected. All, of course, under the guise of national security.

From Biorad to Hadron--1964

Filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicate that Analex was incorporated in New York in 1964 as Biorad, Inc. and four years later assumed the name Hadron, Inc. According to the Washington Post in a 1986 article, the company was originally involved in the manufacture of industrial laser products, then "shifted gears in the late 1970s to focus on professional services."  

Barron's offered more details in a 1988 article, maintaining that
"the outfit emerged in 1979 from the ashes of Xonics, a notorious high-tech fiasco." 
Members of top management were accused by the SEC of fraud and manipulating the company's stock price in order to use the stock to acquire other companies.

Dr. Earl Brian, 1974
"In 1979 Dominic Laiti gathered a group of former Xonic executives and bought Hadron. By 1983, the company was lauded in the press as an 'investment banker's dream.' For the child had, it appeared, inherited the parent's acquisitive streak, snapping up nine companies in just three years." While Laiti led the investor group that owned Hadron, it was Xonic's former president, Dr. Earl Winfrey Brian, who called the shots. He was politically well connected, friend to President Ronald Reagan and the head of Regan's Justice Department, Ed Meese, and, if speculations are true, he had a hand in a number of scandals, including the October Surprise of 1980 that supposedly kept the embassy hostages in Iran until Regan was inaugurated as president, the Iran-Contra affair in which a rogue operation traded arms for hostages, and the selling of sensitive crime-tracking software to the intelligence services of foreign governments, an incident in which Hadron supposedly played a bit role.
