KC-46 Tanker Aircraft: Acquisition Plans Have Good Features but Contain Schedule Risk
Michael Sullivan (au)
Aerial refueling is essential to global U.S. military operations. The backbone of the nationäó»s tanker forces -- the KC-135 Stratotanker -- is over 50 years old with age-related problems and increasing support costs that could ground the fleet. The USAF has initiated the $52 billion KC-46 program to start replacing the current fleet. Plans are to produce 18 tankers by 2017 and 179 aircraft through 2027. Other follow-on procurements are anticipated to replace all KC-135s. This report addresses: (1) the programäó»s acquisition strategy, incl. its contracting approach; (2) the major schedule and technical risks; and (3) the extent the programäó»s acquisition strategy and documentation comply with policy, legislation, and best practices. Charts and tables. A print on demand report.
