RICHMOND, Vt. (AP) - A Richmond company that develops underwater navigation systems is highlighting how small Vermont high-technology companies can have a global reach.

Software and other products being developed by Greensea Systems have industrial or military applications across the world.

Vermont Commerce Secretary Lawrence Miller calls Greensea a "brilliant poster child of things you might not ever expect to be located in Vermont doing world-class work in a really specialized, highly demanding industry."

Greensea is small. Company President Ben Kinnaman says that in recent weeks it went from 10 employees to 12, but they could double their workforce in the next year or so.

Many of Vermont's high-tech companies are small. Most of the companies that belong to the Vermont Technology Alliance employ 10 to 50 people.
