Abstract:

Mission failure has characterized many high profile incidences in the intercontinental ballistic missile ICBM community over the last 10 years. Several in-depth studies have dissected the culture and explored misgivings of the ICBM community. Buried underneath all of the scrutiny is a relatively young munitions and missile maintenance officer career field. The career field is barely 15 years old, and the creation of special identifiers to track and distinguish expertise occurred less than 8 years ago. An objective analysis of the health of the career field is required to ensure changes in the ICBM community do not negatively impact or are negatively impacted by the current development of maintenance officers. A thorough review of the health and sustainability of the ICBM maintenance officer career field will reveal conclusions and recommendations that could assist the entire ICBM community in mitigating todays problems and securing the confidence of the service and public.
