Abstract:

This study report utilizes the past and present contracting strategy of the Sidewinder missile and the considerations for the contracting strategy for the development of a Sidewinder successor air-to-air missile as a basis for investigating the various contracting strategy options available to a program manager and some of the major issues associated with each strategy. The investigative portion of the study addresses the available literature on contracting strategy guidance and gleans comments from individuals with experience in the contracting strategy process. The study provides no recommendations for future idealistic contracting strategies but presents the experience of others from which future Navy Missile program mangers may benefit. Author
