WASHINGTON — Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall will take over a US Defense Department initiative to streamline defense procurement initiatives with India.

Kendall takes over the role that was performed since June 2012 by former Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, who stepped down in December. Kendall had already been working on the project for Carter.

Ive actually been working on the trade initiative with India for well over a year now, Kendall said Friday during a briefing at the Pentagon. Ive made two trips to India for that purpose. Ill probably be going again later this summer.

The specifics of the trip are still being ironed out since a new government recently came into power in India.

Weve also had some good discussions about science and technology cooperation, Kendall said.

One project under consideration is co-production and co-development of the Javelin missile.■
