    There were unique opportunities in the Silicon Valley job market to work on Army and other DOD combat and security systems. The residual leadership team from UDLP was great; however, now being forced out or marginalized.


    With loss of FCS-MGV contract coupled with other Land and Armaments program losses (MATV, FMTV, etc.) the U.S. Combat Systems business is down to legacy support contracts and JLTV to pave its future. With the Defense Reform Act of 2009 and other political shift on the par tof hte government assuming role of platform integrator, the business case for the Santa Clara site is dismal at best. The L&A corporate folks, while they won't "turn the lights out" on Santa Clara certainly aren't going to go out of their way to close Santa Clara as that is part of their business re-alignment plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for technology collaboration to provide better continuity of operations rather than isolate business development to specific sites. Recognize that technology solutions and not platform productions contracts will be your bread and butter. Attempting to deliver on all requested requirements equals bad engineering practice and lost contracts.
