Product Will Not Be Ready By Deadline

Your company has a contract with the USA military to deliver a prototype of an important product by a particular deadline. You are the manager of the project responsible for delivery and are responsible for all decisions. If the deadline is not met the government will renege on its contract, your company will go out of business and you will be out of a job. The product is not ready and the deadline is looming. There is no time to acquire additional personnel. What do you do?
