Defense Acquisitions: Future Aerostat and Airship Investment Decisions Drive Oversight and Coordination Needs
Cristina T. Chaplain (au)
Use of lighter-than-air platforms, such as aerostats, which are tethered to the ground, and airships, which are free-flying, could significantly improve U.S. persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and communications capabilities, and move cargo more cheaply over long distances and to austere locations. The Dept. of Defense (DOD) is spending about $1.3 billion in FY 2012 to develop and acquire numerous aerostats and airships. This report determined (1) what key systems governmentwide are being developed and acquired, including funding, purpose, and status; (2) any technical challenges these key efforts may be facing; and (3) how effectively these key efforts are being overseen to ensure coordination, and identify any potential for duplication. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
