CAR Bridgman J. Monty Monty Bridgman was with Photographic Survey Corporation in Toronto (1946 - 1959) which later became Applied Research Ltd. with Monty as President and Founding Manager. In 1957 PSC Applied Research was purchased by A.V. Roe Canada Ltd. and he became Vice-President and General Manager of the renamed company of Canadian Applied Research Ltd. In 1959, after the cancellation of the Arrow project, he left CARL to become the Canadian representative for US based Litton Systems Ltd. (Eventually CARL was taken over by DeHavilland Canada and became a major component of their Special Products and Research Division, which later evolved into Spar Aerospace.) The Canadian Forces were using the various products of Litton Systems, including their LN-3 inertial navigation system, and decided that these should be produced and supported in Canada. Monty was the one who set up the Litton Systems facility in the Toronto area and became President and General Manager of the Litton Systems (Canada) Ltd. plant until 1969. - details supplied by Monty's daughter.
