    Revenue from the company's largest contract a five-year, $300 million contract with the Army to do engineering and electronics work at Vint Hill Farms Station in Fauquier County—started pouring in last year, accounting for strong revenue growth in the first nine months of its fiscal year. Revenue from other government contracts also grew at record levels.

    In February the company said it would open a research and development center in Wall, N.J., after the Army decided to relocate the Vint Hill contract to Fort Monmouth, N.J.

    Government contract revenue helped offset a slowdown in sales at the company's packaging subsidiary. In the third quarter QuesTech Packaging scaled back production of its primary product, liners for baby bottles, because of a contract dispute with its customer Munchkin Inc., which was settled last month.

    The packaging subsidiary is exploring agreements to make products for several Fortune 500 companies.
