this did slip under the radar:




-- Terminates the Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) program, which had significant technical challenges and was not consistent with the Secretary’s missile defense policy guidance.

-- Terminates the Kinetic Energy Interceptor (KEI) program, which had serious technology, affordability, and operational problems.

-- Cancels the second Airborne Laser (ABL), and refocuses the ABL program as a technology research effort. The ABL had significant affordability and technology problems and the program’s proposed operational role was highly questionable.
