The Pentagon has dropped its plan to redesign the warheads on its ballistic missile interceptors. The web-based news site Motley Fool reported Aug. 25 that technical problems led to the decision to end the program, known as the Redesigned Kill Vehicle (RKV). The program would have been worth more than $5 billion to Boeing, Raytheon, and their industry partners, Motley Fool reported.
“We decided the path we’re going down wouldn’t be fruitful,” said Michael Griffin, the Defense Department’s chief civilian for research and engineering, Motley Fool reported. “This decision supports our efforts to gain full value from every future taxpayer dollar spent on defense.”
