Abstract : In August of 1995, BMDO awarded a contract to TRW to develop a rapid prototype BMC3 systems for National Missile Defense. This was a streamlined acquisition effort, focusing on reduced CDRLs, paperless system, and joint Government - contractor Integrated Product Teams (I PT). The leader of this effort was LTC Jim McKenna, now retired from the Air Force. The acquisition process has been publicly presented (see "Contract Management", February 1996 issue). This paper is a follow on to that article and briefly describes the BMC3 product and two of the key TRW - Government IPT processes used to date in this streamlined development effort.
