Abstract:

The Joint Cruise Missiles Project Office JCMPO, or, today, CMP was established in 1977 with the Navy as executive service to develop the air- launched cruise missile ALCM for the Air Force and a sea-launched cruise missile SLCM for the Navy. The latter, known as Tomahawk, also had a ground- launched version GLCM for the Air Force. Almost from project inception, the JCMPO directed extensive use of dual competitive sources for all major elements of the missiles. The largest dual-source arrangement involves the Tomahawk family of missiles-SLCM and GLCM. They were originally developed with General DynamicsConvair GDC as the airframe producer and flight vehicle integrator and McDonnell Douglas MDAC as the guidance systemss producer and integrator.
