A Camarillo firm with the unusual name 3dbm Inc. has been awarded a $1.8-million contract to produce "threat simulators" for the Naval Air Weapons Station at Point Mugu. The simulators act as enemy radar and are used by the Navy as targets in missile test firings, reports James A. Tranovich, 3dbm's vice president of engineering. "It's our last defense contract," he said. "Five years ago, we were 90% defense-related. Now, military work accounts for less than 20% of our revenues."
