USD(AT&L) Policy Letter, 19 Sep 07Prototyping and Competition “…all acquisition strategies requiring USD(AT&L) approval must be formulated to include competitive, technically mature prototyping through MS B.” “The Department needs to discover issues before the costly System Design and Development (SDD) phase. During SDD, large teams should be producing detailed manufacturing designs—not solving myriad technical issues.”
