Defense Acquisitions: Assessments of Selected Weapon Programs
Paul L. Francis (au)
From 2001 to the present, the DoD has doubled its planned investment in new weapons systems from $750 billion to almost $1.5 trillion. Reviews of weapons acquisitions over 3 decades have found consistent cost increases, schedule delays, & performance shortfalls. Americaís growing long-range fiscal challenges may ultimately spur Congress to pressure DoD to cut spending on new weapons & to redirect funding to other priorities. In response, DoD might be compelled to deliver new weapon programs within estimated costs. This independent, knowledge-based assessment of selected defense programs identifies potential risks & needed actions when a programís projected attainment of knowledge diverges from the best practices.
