: Hi again,

: "This defense project was terminated because
: of its swollen expenses and rolling deadlines."

: What are "Rolling Deadlines"?

: Thanks!

This is a guess, but I think this means that the deadlines for this project were constantly being changed. The project was probably behind schedule and original deadlines could not be met, so they were just moved further and further into the future. Apparently this happened to tbe point where the project was in such bad shape that it needed to be terminated altogether.
