Meet Larry Dodgen: retired army lieutenant general and former commander of Army Strategic Command (ARSTRAT).
Larry's new employer is Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Mission Systems sector, where he will serve as vice president of strategy for the company's missile systems business.
This is the same business sector that is currently competing for a big contract called the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System.
The contract will be awarded by a unit of the Missile Defense Agency, but in operation will be used by Dodgen's former employees at ARSTRAT, who had a hand in shaping the requirements for the system.
No conflict of interest there.
