Here at DID, some of our readers have been asking us to make our Focus Articles more accessible. These are DID’s pieces that highlight key weapons programs and cover related events and contracts on an ongoing basis, or deal with a critical industry issue. In response, we’ve created a new topic category under the major heading “DID Site.” I’ve also gone back through the archives and tagged a number of key pieces that belong in the new topic archive. Presenting: DID Focus Articles, with pieces whose range includes missiles, blimps, aircraft, maintenance programs, ground vehicles, contracting vehicles, ships and submarines, benefits costing, robots & uavs, and more. Reader feedback is appreciated here at DID, and we’re always looking for tips and additions regarding our focus article series. Just drop us a line via’s tips@ emailbox.
