The DoD has been researching and developing defenses against ballistic missile attacks. In 1990, DoD awarded R&D contracts to develop and test kill vehicles. One of the contractors, Rockwell Internat., subcontracted a portion of its kill vehicle design work to TRW, which was tasked with developing software that could operate on a computer onboard the kill vehicle. This report discusses a former TRW employee's lawsuit, addressing the following: Did Boeing and TRW disclose the key results and limitations of the flight test? What were the methodology, findings, and limitations of the eval? What was the basis for the DoJ's decision not to join the lawsuit? and How did the DoD assure itself that the Engineering Team could provide an indep. and objective review?
