It’s reported that Lockheed-Martin has been slapped with a $15 million mark to their award fee for the AEHF-1 mission.

Given that the total cost of the mission is probably around $1.5 billion and that the anomaly will cause a about a year delay in the spacecraft becoming operational, this award fee holdback doesn’t seem too significant.

Is it me?
