Cold feet about ULA?

Just a day after Reuters reported that final government approval for the United Launch Alliance (ULA) might come in the next several weeks comes word that one of the partners in the EELV joint venture might be having second thoughts. The Washington Post and Reuters report that Lockheed Martin will revisit the ULA in a board meeting on Thursday, according to comments made by company executives in an earnings conference call Tuesday. “[A]t that time, we’re going to review with the board the status (of the deal), and have the appropriate discussion,” Lockheed CFO Chris Kubasik said. Reuters notes that this “lukewarm approach” is different from remarks earlier this year when both Boeing and Lockheed Martin reaffirmed their commitment to the ULA despite regulatory delays.
