Contracts: 6/4

(With apologies for my five-day blogging lapse, as my wedding to the world’s most amazing woman proved to be quite a distraction …)

Today, you can:

  1. Learn that the Boeing/Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle is now seen as a percursor to two new such vehicles called Insight and Integrator
  2. Bid for a contract that transforms F-16 fighters into targets for air-to-air missile practice, now that there’s only a few old F-4 Phantoms left to blow up for fun
  3. Compete to build the next-generation of Global Positioning System satellites
  4. Find out the bullets on board the F-16 and F-18 don’t work right
  5. Feel oddly sorry for the plight of Lockheed Martin, which won the Joint Common Missile contract, then lost it for no apparent reason in 2005, then kept the program on life support through the company’s allies in Congress, then lost the contract again after the army decided to re-compete the resurrected program

    I’m proud to introduce you to the new Kathy Trimble, nee Ellwood. Like I said: the most amazing woman on the planet.
