The Pentagon is canceling a multibillion-dollar contract with Boeing for what’s known as the Redesigned Kill Vehicle, a new ballistic missile interceptor.
The move was announced Wednesday by Michael Griffin, the Pentagon’s undersecretary for research and engineering.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Ending the program was the responsible thing to do,” he said in a statement. “Development programs sometimes encounter problems. After exercising due diligence, we decided the path we’re going down wouldn’t be fruitful, so we’re not going down that path anymore. This decision supports our efforts to gain full value from every future taxpayer dollar spent on defense.”
The move was lamented by missile defense boosters, such as Riki Ellison of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance.
