3 Introduction National Security Counsel Recommendations: Seaborne nuclear missile launch system using converted transports 1500 miles minimum range IRBM Augment U.S. Air force fleet of bombs U.S. Air Force develop ICBM 3John J. Byrne ©2011

4 1955 to 1957 U.S. Navy given 8 years to complete 4John J. Byrne ©2011

5 1955 to 1957 continued Political influences Senator McCarthy Korean War Soviet spying President Eisenhower Military industrial complex Garrison state Atom for Peace Funding 5John J. Byrne ©2011

6 Political influences continued Interservice rivalry Curtis LeMay Admiral’s Revolt – U.S.S. United States Naval culture – cruise missiles 6John J. Byrne ©2011

7 1955 to 1957 Technical Issues No such missile existed capable of satisfying the National Security Council’s requirements No warhead had yet been developed that was capable of being deployed on a missile capable of seaborne launch No launch system existed that was capable of launching a large missile from a ship No ship in the Navy inventory was capable of carrying and launching a large missile No guidance system existed that was accurate enough to guide a nuclear armed missile 1500 miles to its target with any degree of reliability whatsoever 7John J. Byrne ©2011

8 Technical Issues continued NSC requirements 8John J. Byrne ©2011

9 1955 to 1957 Initial Responses Stakeholder analysis - Risk averse SPO Commissioned China Lake study Jupiter and Transport requirements Not realistic 9John J. Byrne ©2011

10 1955 to 1957 Initial Responses continued Must use submarines Need smaller missiles Need smaller warheads German experience Enlisted Dr. Teller 10John J. Byrne ©2011

11 1955 to 1957 Initial Responses continued Created Polaris Ad hoc Group China Lake Project Atlantis Project Mercury 20 megaton Liquid or Solid fuel? 11John J. Byrne ©2011

12 1955 to 1957 Initial Responses continued Nobska Assumptions and constrain analysis 1100 W-47 12John J. Byrne ©2011

13 Late 1957 Possible but dead in the water. 13John J. Byrne ©2011

14 Sputnik October 4, 1957 NASA New math Duck and cover drills NSF ARPA, DARPA, ARPANET Polaris 14John J. Byrne ©2011

15 Post Sputnik Risk seeking Partial funding restored 1100 miles accepted 15John J. Byrne ©2011

16 PERT Developed PERT Project and activity standard deviation Earned Value Management 16John J. Byrne ©2011

17 PERT Applied 17John J. Byrne ©2011 Polaris Risk ManagementTypical Risk Management Determine time estimates (TE) from PERT estimates of activity duration Risk Management Planning Calculate standard deviations and rank activities based on these standard deviation Risk Identification Perform selective Risk IdentificationRisk Qualification Analyze and prioritize risksRisk Quantification Create proactive and reactive response plans Risk Response Planning Monitor and Control Risks using EVMRisk Monitoring and Control

18 Specific Issues Build or modify? - early version of decision tree analysis Lockheed & Kelley Johnson 14 rules 19 launch failures and available parts Submarine launch system - popup testing – San Clemente 18John J. Byrne ©2011

19 Specific Issues continued Transferred Oxygen Carbon dioxide Carbon monoxide Water Scorpion to George Washington 19John J. Byrne ©2011

20 Specific Issues continued Technical disputes Navigation issues: Missile – 1100 miles Submarine - SINS – GPS Warhead reentry 20John J. Byrne ©2011

21 Risk management techniques SPO set goals SPO communication management Field locations employed EMV and reported to SPO 21John J. Byrne ©2011

22 Risk management techniques No top-down control Empowered field locations Independent decision making Sharing of budgets amongst individual entities 22John J. Byrne ©2011

23 Conclusions Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo SPO kept project moving without budget Managed competing key stakeholder expectations 23John J. Byrne ©2011

24 Conclusions Centralized/ decentralized organization Clear vision and goals Sputnik Realized its own shortcoming – PERT 24John J. Byrne ©2011

25 Conclusions Hass (2009) Not focus on best PM Focus on managing diverse group of experts 25John J. Byrne ©2011

26 Final word June 9, 1959 George Washington launched Commissioned December 30, 1959 Launch July 20, 1960 26John J. Byrne ©2011

27 Final word Cuban Missile Crisis Cold War Considered most successful DOD project ever 27John J. Byrne ©2011
