NSA FANX Friendship Annex
As many as 12,000 NSA personnel are housed in 1 million square feet of leased space at the Friendship Annex at Airport Square Technology Park and Industrial Park near the Baltimore Washington International airport. ["Supersecret Security Agency of Inestimable Aid to County," The Washington Times, 2 January 1993, page A9.] The Friendship Annex is connected to Ft.Meade and other Washington area facilities through the Washington Area Wideband System (WAWS), a coaxial cable network established in the mid-1970s. A number of identified intelligence community contractors are co-located in and near this complex, including GTE and Westinghouse.
