Weapons Development Challenges in the Spiral Environment:  Weapons Development Challenges in the Spiral Environment Colonel Mike Leggett HQACC/A8Z Advanced Programs Division 1 Feb 06 Overview:  Overview Where We Are The Joint Fight and What Today’s Weapons Provide Where We Need to Go What Future Weapons bring to the Fight Points to Ponder Spiral Development? Testing? Budget? Where We Are… The World Environment:  Where We Are… The World Environment Where We Are… Joint/Combined Is A Must:  Where We Are… Joint/Combined Is A Must Joint/Combined force’s two main strengths: a diverse set of capabilities inherent in the various services and other organizations that comprise the force an exceptional ability to integrate those capabilities in pursuit of a common aim Joint/Combined Warfare support seen through our A8 mission: Acquire, Sustain and Modernize weapons that support Joint Warfare Attributes we will acquire/enhance to fight tomorrow’s fight: Knowledge Empowered, Networked, Interoperable Force Expeditionary, Adaptable/Tailorable, Enduring/Persistent Dominance Precise, Fast and Lethal Effects Resilient, Agile and Sustainable Forces The Ultimate in Joint Interoperability First USAF JSF Base, CVN-XX USS O’Club:  The Ultimate in Joint Interoperability First USAF JSF Base, CVN-XX USS O’Club Where We Are… ACC/A8 “Top 8” Weapons Enhancements:  Where We Are… ACC/A8 “Top 8” Weapons Enhancements Adverse weather capable Precise Increased carriage Extended range Kill mobile targets Increased flexibility Versatile warheads Data-linked Where We Need To Go… Future Weapons Capabilities:  Where We Need To Go… Future Weapons Capabilities Autonomous, Networked, Multi Role Standoff/Long range/Persistent Lethal / Non-Lethal (adjustable) Mobile Targets (land and sea) Minimize collateral damage Quickly Integrated, Common Interfaces, Multiple-Platform carriage and release Auto Target Recognition (ATR) Electro-magnetic Gun Tactical Multi-mission Laser Weapon Adv Warhead DRAAM DROLE Points to Ponder… Challenges Today:  Points to Ponder… Challenges Today Capabilities vision (JCIDS) still evolving throughout DoD Platform, weapons and mission area fluctuations cause frequent shifts in DoD capability to affect future fight BRAC / QDR impact baseline force structure we map against Many fingers in the “pie” keep us guessing As a result, the ability to plan and execute without adding excessive risk mitigation is very difficult in most development programs Adding huge cost and schedule to program…some valid, some not Spiraling Capability is probably the only executable way to get the long term solutions we need, but it has baggage Points to Ponder… Spiral Development:  Points to Ponder… Spiral Development Spiral Development is a great idea, but very challenging to execute efficiently over time We must “stiff-arm” urge to add capability to a defined increment before fielding “Requirements creep” disguised as “spiral development” Adding new requirements to initial capabilities before fielding is not spiral development. Weapons programs in the early throes of Spiraling JASSM – JASSM-ER, JASSM-WDL SDB – SDB II WCMD – WCMD-ER Programs That have Spiraled Well AMRAAM – AIM-120A thru AIM-120D AIM-9B thru AIM-9X Yes, It Can Be Done… AMRAAM Spirals:  Yes, It Can Be Done… AMRAAM Spirals Phase 1 LOT AWARD FY Lot 11 New Warhead, Improved Software (133 USAF, 100 USN) Phase 2 Lot 16-21 Major Guidance Section Upgrade, USA/USMC Beginning Lot 18 (Planned Buys 875 USAF, 219 USN, 96 USA, 237 USMC) Phase 3 Lot 1-6 New Active Radar Missile (3,316 USAF, 543 USN) Lot 6-8 EEPROM, Software, FMS Lot 7-14 (1,245 USAF, 224 USN) Lot 8-10 Minor Guidance Section Upgrade, Smaller Wings/Fins, Improved Software (1,682 USAF; 296 USN) Lot 12 Shortened Control Section, Longer Rocket Motor, FMS Beginning Lot 15 (173 USAF, 120 USN) Phase 2 Lot 13-15 New Target Detection Device, Improved Software (513 USAF, 254 USN) Phase 2 Phase 4 Lot 20-24 Enhanced Data Link, GPS/IMU, Improved Software LOT DELIVERY FY 91 93 95 96 97 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 90 89 88 87 94 92 09 10 93 95 97 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 92 91 90 89 96 94 11 12 AIM-120B Eight Distinct Spirals in Four Major Blocks in 20 years And … We’re Pretty Good At Making Things Work:  And … We’re Pretty Good At Making Things Work 2000lb Effects in a 1000lb Standoff, Survivable Weapon JASSM DT/OT Reliability JASSM DT/OT Accuracy But… It’s Not Getting Easier:  But… It’s Not Getting Easier Testing is becoming an extreme challenge Incredibly difficult to design test in a spiral development environment Even if a good test regime is designed, new capabilities are rapidly outpacing our range/infrastructure to test Spiral program Test Adequacy must be addressed No room for the “perfect” test There MUST be a unambiguous link between the operational requirement, the contract specification and the testing accomplished Funding atmosphere is “flat” at best No additional TOA available to make major changes in testing regime three or four years into development Near term developmental programs paying for test/training from production Slide13:  In Case You Wondered… A TOA Increase It Isn’t Looking Good Demand for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid will limit Defense outlays after 2010 Source: AF/XPX Debt Servicing Medicaid Medicare SS Summary:  Summary Joint Warfare is here to stay Systems we Acquire, Sustain and Modernize must fit into the Joint way of warfighting Joint Team Makeup Interoperable equipment, platforms and weapons are critical Service’s core competencies helps build an unbeatable Team We MUST set baseline expectations for spirals, build and test to it, then field if it works. We all MUST help others understand the need to “step” our way to the full solution as technology and funds allow Gratuitous Motivational Explosions:  Gratuitous Motivational Explosions
