LockMart Sort Of Threatens to Kill ULA Over RD-180 Imports

Lockheed says rocket launch venture hinges on U.S. law waiver
“Lockheed Martin Corp issued a warning on Sunday over the viability of its rocket launch joint venture with Boeing Co, saying the venture urgently needed the United States to waive a law banning the use of Russian engines to launch military and spy satellites. Rick Ambrose, who heads Lockheed’s space business, told Reuters in an interview that concerns about the United Launch Alliance (ULA) venture’s prospects had prompted the partners to approve funding for its new U.S.-powered Vulcan rocket only one quarter at time.”
