Strategic Performance, Innovation and Sourcing

The finalists for the 2011 A&D Program Excellence Awards
have been announced!

Aviation Week’s A&D Programs -- Strategic Performance, Innovation and Sourcing will focus on government customers (defense, national security, space) -- from the initiation of development throughout delivery of product.
