The Signature Management Group has been developing, testing, and implementing signature management solutions and technologies for numerous federal agencies for more than a dozen years as a CTC/EVC satellite office in Huntsville, Alabama. The group consists of a team of engineers, scientists, technicians, and operators integrating methods for managing system signatures.
