FORT BELVOIR, Va. — Defense contractors that want to get more visibility for their products within the defense community now have a "yellow pages" web site sponsored by DOD`s Defense Standardization Program (DSP) office at Fort Belvoir, Va.

The web site is organized into 18 product technology areas determined by DOD to be the critical technologies for weapon systems needs into the next century, reports Greg Saunders, DSP director.

The site, known as the Commercial item Military Market Research (CMMR), is at http://cmmr.crane.navy.mil. Any organization is eligible for what the DSP office calls "free advertising," and DSP officials will make no attempt to edit or limit the number of entries as long as the data are relevant to the selected market research area.

Organizations wishing to enter their activities in the CMMR can fill out a form available on the web site and submit it. The CMMR webmaster reviews these submissions daily, and new postings are expected to be on line within 48 hours.
