Critical program information is
|“||[i]nformation concerning sensitive activities, whether classified or unclassified, that is vitally needed by adversaries or competitors for them to plan and act effectively.||”|
|“||[i]nformation about the program, technologies, and/or systems that, if compromised, would degrade combat effectiveness or shorten the expected combat-effective life of the system.||”|
"Access to this information could allow someone to kill, counter, or clone the acquisition system before or near scheduled deployment, or force a major design change to maintain the same level of effectiveness."
