    A recent decision by the Pentagon to cut the Joint Common Missile (JCM) program in order to fund operations in Iraq has triggered a counter-campaign by Alabama Senators and Representatives, and created a controversy over the future of the program. In May 2004, Lockheed Martin was picked over Raytheon and Boeing-Northrop Grumman teams to conduct JCM's four-year system development and demonstration (SDD) phase, which was to be worth as much as $1.6 billion. The long-term U.S. production estimate of 54,000 missiles would have brought the program to $5 billion, and the United Kingdom had expressed interest in the new weapon and participated in the development process. Canceling the Army-led JCM will save about $2.4 billion over the next six years.
