Abstract : Activity surrounding Open Review #1 dominated performance during the month of October -- including not only preparation for, and attendance at the review, but also extensive replanning resulting from the strong reaction to the level of material presented by Computing Devices. The debrief of our presentation for the Open Review was unexpected -- stating that the perception of the government review team was that the level of detail presented did not appear to reflect a substantive improvement over the proposal submitted. Notwithstanding our concerns regarding not fully meeting expectations for the briefing, we left with a much better appreciation for the SAS level of detail sought as a result of this Open Review process. Open Review #1 results have prompted our team to effect a change in plans -- we began to immediately concentrate on a more detailed SAS to insure we were positioned to be as complaint as possible with expectations for Open Review #2. As a result, we have slipped some of the report requirements from our original schedule until after the November Open Review so as to not detract from SAS OR#2 preparations, as much as practical. The Final Trade Study Report will continue in parallel in support of SAS definition with the plan to submit prior to the Open Review. In addition, the Systems Specification and Systems Concept documents will also continue to evolve as a result of the progress sustained in SAS definition. Progress in the communications area has been the most substantial because our team had such a significant body of work that fed the proposal effort as well as the continued Phase I refinement of the original approach. It is also an area receiving large emphasis based on how we've partitioned the scope. The situation awareness area has required significant new effort post proposal and is now coming together as we detail functionality.
