I’ll be on NPR’s All Things Considered on Tuesday, talking about the military’s doomed efforts to build a universal radio called the Joint Tactical Radio System.

The show will coincide with publication of my first investigative feature for the Center for Public Integrity. More on that later.

    Are you doing a remote from SC or are you going to be in Washington?

    Good to hear! I will definately tune in

    Remote. It was pre-taped.

    Why is combined communications system procurement such a nightmare. Sure the UK has such a system now in the form of BOWMAN but it cost £2.7 and I think fifteen years to develop and support and had multiple teething problems (including headsets for soldiers giving the wearer radiation burns).

    Sorry I meant to say £2.7 BILLION not £2.70 pence.
