Dear Reader, this story began in the NovemberDecember 2010 issue of Defense AT and L. I told you how, in a land so much like our own nobody could tell them apart, a Small Elite Amphibious Fighting TeamSEAFT realized they had a problem, a problem they thought could be solved by a new portable radar. Unfortunately, the radar cost so much that they had to abandon their idea. But fortunately, another of the nations fighting teams, the Above Low Objects Fighting Team ALOFT, had noticed the new radar development and coveted it. The SEAFT was happy to share with the ALOFT the information and cost estimates theyd gathered. The ALOFT had a bigger budget, so they continued the development of the radar, creating vital charts to help them negotiate the many offices of necessary supervision and review. But as the ALOFT gained more information about the radar, it became clear that it was going to cost more than theyd planned to spend. We left our herotheALOFTs tool buyergrappling with the problem. We rejoin him as he attempts to work out a solution.
