    Missle Defense Restructure

    The article also said:
    The contract with Boeing was structured poorly, providing the company with greater fees for cutting costs than improving quality and reliability. Riki Ellison, who heads the non-profit Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, said GMD's problems were due to "misguided" decisions around 2009 to scale back testing, reduce funding and cancel work on a new kill vehicle, the part of the system that hits an enemy missile. The moves were part of the Obama administration's early efforts to reduce tensions with Russia and focus more on regional defense, he said. One senior U.S. official said Pentagon leaders are confident that Syring is taking the steps needed to put the program on track, and put appropriate incentives in place for Boeing. Syring last week told a Senate hearing that MDA had identified the cause of that failure, and would fix all 30 interceptors before year end. Deliveries would resume if the test succeeded, he said.
