Monday’s edition of Aerospace Daily features an article with an ominous headline: “DOD Nears Decision On Fate Of SBIRS-High”. Is the missile early warning satellite program, which has faced its share of problems like many other Pentagon satellite efforts, facing a real threat of cancellation? Probably not. Its cost overruns have triggered a Nunn-McCurdy review where cancellation is one option that must be considered. The Pentagon is expected to make a decision on SBIRS-High by December 13, but the article notes it is more likely that the program will be descoped in some manner, in large part because SBIRS-High is too far along to scrap it and start over.
