Acquisition Management in the U.S. Air Force and its Predecessors
Lawrence R. Benson (au); Richard P. Hallion (fr)
In its first 50 years as an independent armed service, the U.S. Air Force (USAF) has fostered science & technology & -- in partnership with the private sector -- developed & produced the complex tools of aerospace power that helped the Free World prevail in the Cold War. The foundation for these extraordinary achievements was laid in the 40 years before the USAF separated from the U.S. Army in 1947. This document tells the story of how the air components of the Army & then the USAF organized & managed the activities required to get aircraft & other weapon systems from the drawing board to the flightline or the launch pad. This study is the first overall historical synopsis of the service’s acquisition structure. Illustrations.
