Shelton Puts Contractors on Notice [Aviation Week]

by

Gen. William Shelton, commander of U.S. Air Force Space Command, says the service in the future will take fewer risks in space development programs while adopting a tougher stance in negotiating contracts with industry, Aviation Week reports.

     “Shelton says he is concerned that contracts written during the past decade, which set the parameters for companies delivering the next generation of space capability, limit his ability to reward or punish industry for its work. Thus, he hopes any new contracts will have more clear guidance on how much risk the government and industry bears for projects.”
