The Royal Navy's new-generation Type 45 destroyer acquisition options and implications by John Birkler( )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2001, RAND helped the United Kingdom_s Ministry of Defence (MOD) evaluate different acquisition strategies that it might use to acquire the new-generation Type 45 destroyer. RAND_s analyses helped in determining whether the MOD should have the Type 45 built by one company or two, whether it should compete the 12 ships in the class or directly allocate work to specific shipbuilders, and whether companies producing the Type 45 should construct the destroyer in its entirety in one shipyard or from blocks produced in several shipyards

The United Kingdom's naval shipbuilding industrial base : the next fifteen years ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The United Kingdom has many contracted and prospective shipbuilding programmes on the horizon over the next two decades. The UK Ministry of Defence wants to know whether the United Kingdom's existing industrial base will be able to meet the requirements of this shipbuilding plan. Using extensive surveys and a breadth of data, RAND researchers look at the capacity of the UK shipbuilding industrial base and how alternative acquisition requirements, programmes, and schedules might affect MOD plans
Options for reducing costs in the United Kingdom's future aircraft carrier (CVF) programme ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2012 and 2015, respectively, the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence (MOD) will replace its three Invincible-class aircraft carriers with two Future Aircraft Carriers (CVFs), the largest ships ever constructed for the Royal Navy. In preparation for this project, the MOD asked RAND to look at the economic implications, schedule impact, and technical risks of adopting new technologies and alternative manufacturing options. The research described in this report, based on the design and manning data available at the time, focuses on possible reductions in whole-life costs and manpower requirements of the carriers. Concerning reduced acquisition costs-based on figures from various cost analysis models-the researchers suggest options such as using construction practices from the commercial shipbuilding industry plus commercial systems and equipment in place of military standard equipment wherever there is no adverse impact on operations or safety. Regarding personnel cost savings and complement-reducing initiatives, the researchers look towards the practices of private-sector shipbuilding companies and of navies around the globe. Based on this analysis, they recommend, for example, promoting a cross-trained workforce with broad skills and using civilians to augment the ship's crew for nonwarfare responsibilities. Options for reducing the complement examine the trade-offs of increased up-front investments in technology with the corresponding manpower reductions. As the CVF Integrated Project Team continues to explore its many options, the researchers remain optimistic that, given several factors indicated, the CVF's targets can be reached

Sustaining key skills in the UK military aircraft industry ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In December 2005, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) published its first Defence Industrial Strategy, containing a specific reference to the military fixed wing aircraft sector and a requirement to retain domestic design and engineering capabilities, as well as other skills, to perform through-life activities. In 2009, the House of Commons Defence Committee urged the MOD to "set out what assessment it has made of the health of the UK defence industry and, in particular, those parts of the defence industry where the MOD wishes to retain industrial capability in the UK." The research reported in this monograph was commissioned by the MOD's Fixed Wing Sector Strategy Board to assist the MOD in its development of a strategy and sustainment plan for the military fixed wing sector. The RAND study was conducted between August and December 2009 and focused on the current health and future sustainment of key skills in the UK fixed wing military industrial base. This monograph describes the qualitative and quantitative methodologies that the RAND team followed and summarises its findings and recommendations
