GreenLine Systems wins contract

A subsidiary of A-T Solutions Inc., a defense contractor with a strong local presence, announced Friday that it is part of the Brilliance Information team that was recently awarded a four-year, firm-fixed price contract to support the Royal Malaysian Customs Department.

A-T Solutions acquired GreenLine Systems last November. The subsidiary specializes in helping governments around the world manage risks associated with maritime and cross-border movement of vessels, goods and people.

GreenLine will deploy its Cargo Targeting System and Vessel Selection System as part of the new “Ubiquitous Customs” Customs Information System.

This project is designed to provide the Royal Malaysian Customs Department with a scalable and proven risk management methodology and software platform for assessing threats and finding anomalous behavior.

A–T Solutions, which began in Fredericksburg in 2001, is an internationally recognized leader in counterterrorism. It offers a full spectrum of capabilities in the areas of intelligence, technology, training and operations to combat terrorism and protect the United States and its allies.

Orange wineries tops in Governor’ Cup

Wines from two Orange County vineyards were honored during the 2014 Virginia Wineries Association’s Governor’s Cup awards ceremony Thursday in Richmond.

Barboursville Vineyards’ 2008 Malvaxia Passito, 2010 Nebbiolo Reserve and 2010 Octagon and Horton Vineyards 2010 Tannat were among the 12 top-scoring wines in the 2014 Virginia Governor’s Cup Competition. They were selected from 410 entries of both red and white wines from 96 wineries.

The 2014 Virginia Governor’s Cup Competition was conducted over three weeks of preliminary tastings at the Capital Wine School in Washington. The final round of tastings was held at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond in early February. The 12 top-scoring wines made the Governor’s Cup Case, and the top-scoring wine, Williamsburg Winery’s Adagio, received the Governor’s Cup.

The Governor’s Cup competition, revamped in 2011, is a result of a partnership among the gubernatorial-appointed Virginia Wine Board, the Virginia Vineyards Association and the Virginia Wineries Association, which owns and manages the competition.
