Draft National Defense Authorization Act: Sentinel Implications

    Draft National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2024 was released 12 June 2023


    Lawmakers also want the Air Force to establish an “integrated master schedule” for the Sentinel intercontinental ballistic missile designed to replace the aging Minuteman 3 ICBM fleet, as well as to brief Congress every quarter on the program’s progress and, if a delay happens in the interim, to report it within 30 days. DoD in March was forced to rejigger the $96 billion effort to minimize schedule overruns caused by supply chain and workforce issues at prime contractor Northrop Grumman.


    The full House Armed Services Committee is set to markup the draft NDAA on June 21. It remains unclear when the Senate counterpart will vote on the bill, which then goes to conference committee for the two sides of Capitol Hill to iron out their differences.
