FCS - R.I.P.

It's done. Not only is the $87 billion manned ground vehicle segment, but the entire Army Future Combat System modernization program is finished. The Pentagon's chief weapons buyer Ashton Carter say modernization will continue, but the fate of the players is still under consideration. That means, SAIC and Boeing will have to wait and see what their roles will be. Stop work orders will be issued shortly and conversations with the contractors about termination fees will begin and then it's back to the drawing board.

Pentagon Cutting Weapons

The Pentagon has cut several weapons programs it says are no longer needed. Ashton Carter, defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, says the cuts may avoid further cancellations of major programs. He said at a conference this week, "It's fair to say that the poorest performers were identified." He added other programs, like the latest generation fighter, the F-35, are still being reviewed and could be restructured. Scheduling slippage has been a chronic problem for the F-35. Others, like the C-17 transport have been axed.
