Is JAGM dead? (UPDATE: NO!)

Looks like the US Army yesterday officially cancelled the contract solicitation for the Joint Air to Ground Missile (JAGM), or so says this acquisition notice. I’m working on confirming the details, but it appears that JAGM may already be history … like it’s predecessor.

[UPDATE: I jumped the gun here. JAGM is alive and well. The army just cancelled a previous draft of the RFP that stated there would be no competition. This is because there will indeed be a competition.]

    The US should look at purchasing foreign alternatives.

    This has to be a new change. As of 8 am this morning MST, amendment 7 stated that the competition was revoking amendment 5 (which specified that the competition would not occur). Additionally, an InsideDefense article from Monday Jan. 28 had a confirmed Army source saying that the RFP was to be released on Feb. 15. So, my question is what happened in a mere matter of hours?
