Systems engineering and program management (SE/PM) constitute a large portion of the acquisition cost of military aircraft and guided weapons systems. The goal of this study was the development of a set of cost-estimating relationships that can be used to estimate the SE/PM cost element for development and production of aircraft and weapons programs. The authors canvassed government and industry p......

There has been tremendous growth in demand for unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) by the United States military since 2001, and the Navy is making large investments in a number of programs, including acquisition of high-altitude maritime surveillance systems, demonstration programs for carrier-capable unmanned combat aircraft, and acquisition of rotary and small fixed-wing tactical UASs. In this boo......

In response to a congressional mandate that the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) institute a program management initiative for the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber Program, the OSD asked RAND to provide research and analytic support for a strategy to reduce B-2 procurement costs. This report, part of that effort, examines several past uses of multiyear procurement contracting by the Air Forc......

The ability of the United States Air Force (USAF) to keep its aircraft operating at an acceptable operational tempo, in wartime and in peacetime, has been important to the Air Force since its inception. This is a much larger issue for the Air Force today, having effectively been at war for 20 years, with its aircraft becoming increasingly more expensive to operate and maintain and with military bu......

The research presented in this dissertation began as a part of a study examining the costing of modifying Air Force weapon systems. Over the same time that the concept for the dissertation was evolving, the Air Force leadership was directing a significant amount of funding to research the past and present state of aircraft modifications with the goal of developing good modification policies for th......

An analysis, as a two-sided war game, of the problem of allocating two types of aircraft (bombers and fighters) among three different air tasks (counter-air, air defense, and support of ground operations) in a multistrike campaign. It is assumed that a bomber can be used in either the counter-air or ground-support operations, while a fighter can be used in either the air-defense or ground-support ......
