Cybernet Systems is spreading its tentacles beyond its Ann Arbor home.

The company of 50 people and a few summer interns is opening a new office in Orlando. The handful of people will serve as information assurance capacity for clients of its military vehicle work down south. In the meantime the company has four jobs openings, including a mathematical engineer for its Ann Arbor headquarters.

"We're almost always accepting resumes and hiring," says Patrick Lewis, a spokesman for Cybernet Systems.

The 20-year-old firm specializes in research and development in the defense and medical fields. It deals mostly with federal contracts.

Among its products is the Large Caliber Automated Resupply, which loads ammunition into tanks and unloads unwanted casings or ammunition remotely. Its Automated Tactical Ammunition Classification System sorts ammunition, a costly and time-consuming task in the military.

Cybernet Systems medical division developed a telemedicine service that enables physicians to remotely gather and review outpatient physiological data over the Internet. It was used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
