Like the BMDO
study, RAND uses data from the SAR reports, and RAND focuses on the seven categories of cost variance that the SAR contains: quantity, economic, schedule, engineering, estimating, support, and other.
The FY2002 budget also included funds for BMDO
to resume work on space-based kinetic energy (KE) weapons: $5 million for experiment design and $15 million for concept definition.
El Congreso deberia requerir del BMDO

This figure is inadequate as well because BMDO

But even if the next test misfires, the Pentagon's Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO
) has already put forward a rationale that Clinton could use to give the green light for deployment, namely that two more "hit to kill" tests could be squeezed in between now and next spring, when construction will begin on the critical NMD radar site in Shemya, Alaska, if Clinton decides to go full speed ahead on deployment.
The agencies gain nothing from the economic success of the companies they fund, with one exception: BMDO
(Star Wars) realizes that it can gain new products on the cheap by fostering new technologies that are likely to attract capital investment as they mature.
Commissioned by the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO
