Much government work at the top-secret level is so highly classified that even the contracts themselves are classified. Hundreds of companies, moreover, do not identify their clients beyond saying the "federal government" or the "intelligence community." And still more companies are subcontractors to large corporations, working in partnership on top-secret projects and thus only indirectly for government organizations. This field represents those companies that do top-secret work but for which the specific government client is unknown.
