Impacts of Space System Acquisition on National Security
Naval Postgraduate School (U.S.)
Harris, Andrew W., Jr.
From the thesis abstract: "This thesis examines a series of problems that the United States has encountered in its space systems acquisition process, and how these problems have impacted national security. This thesis has also examines several space system projects, and analyzes the various elements contributing to increased project cost and major project delays. Based on this assessment, it is concluded that although the space acquisition process has gone through a number of significant changes over the past 50 years, it is questionable that lessons learned from past acquisition experiences coupled with implemented space acquisition process changes has led to significant progress. Several recommendations are made to improve the acquisition process."
