Cocktail parties are a wonderful place to get tidbits of information over the tidbits that you get to eat. At one such event on Sunday evening here the subject of Scorpion arose.Scorpion is the acronym for the convoluted official title of the French defense ministry program to completely revamp the army's equipment from vehicles to weapons to individual soldier equipment and have them all data linked.Two consortiums have been set up to bid for the development contract: one led by Thales the other by EADS. Our colleagues at Reuters announced last week that an announcement would be made during Eurosatory, announcing the winner as the Thales-led consortium.
