The inevitable protest will probably cite the industrial base consideration as a flaw in the award, as a selection criteria that wasn't listed as an evaluation factor.
You better believe that will be on the lawyer list of things to look for in all the emails, records, etc. that will come via FOIA / protest. It seems the RCO has things locked up and wouldn't let their folks on the CRB / SSA mention things like "industrial impact" since this is such a major project.
Now the long waiting game for protest, etc.
I wish someone would have asked when we get to see what we're spending all this money on!

The NG bird is an A2/AD monster designed specifically for the Pacific, but with the EOTS of an F-35 for close air support in the ME and neural networking capabilities that make AEGIS show its age.
