Defense and the economy annex C to Adjusting to the drawdown : report of the Defense Conversion Commission by David R Graham ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Institute for Defense Analyses prepared this paper for the Defense Conversion Commission to provide an assessment of the economic effects of the defense budget drawdown. Using economic simulation models, we estimate the potential long-run economic benefits, and the short-run transitional costs, of the planned budget cuts. We present several cases showing how the results depend on alternative policies for spending the peace dividend
Reconstitution and defense conversion supporting material for Adjusting to the drawdown : report of the Defense Conversion Commission ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Institute for Defense Analyses prepared this paper for the Defense Conversion Commission. It describes DoD's mission to preserve the nation's ability to reconstitute forces, and outlines a reconstitution strategy. The proposed strategy relies on DoD's in-place suppliers, who support ongoing modernization and support programs, augmented by commercial suppliers. The paper outlines the programs and policies needed to tap the commercial supplier base for reconstitution, and examines needed industrial base capabilities. The conclusion identifies the appropriate defense conversion policies to support reconstitution

Defense acquisition : observations two years after the Packard Commission by David R Graham ( Book )
3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 1986 Packard Commission report recommended changes in the defense acquisition process to reduce development times and costs and to produce weapons better suited to war fighters' needs. These recommendations included restructuring the acquisition organization, improving the work force, overhauling the acquisition decision-making process, and reforming regulations. The Office of the Under Secretary for Acquisition requested this study to help inform the next administration about the current status of acquisition reform: What has been tried, what is working and what isn't. It asked IDA to review developments within the Department in the last two years, and to solicit the views of officials responsible for making the acquisition process work. It directed IDA to provide a progress report on acquisition reform, to make observations on the current status of the acquisition process, and to recommend priorities for further actions. This report summarizes IDA's findings and recommendations. It describes Presidential Directives and legislation resulting from the Packard Commission, and subsequent activity within the department. IDA's findings are based in part on a review of recent legislation, directives and other documents. In addition, IDA conducted interviews with more than 100 individuals during the Summer and Fall of 1988. The interviewees include officials in the Under Secretary's organization and other OSD components of former DoD personnel, academic experts, and officials outside of DoD

Dossier : Russia's World Turned Upside Down. I ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
2 articles:ʹ- The Russian Federation's Fight for Survival - examines the country's huge problem i.e. whether its eighty-nine components - republics, oblasts and krais - will find enough common ground to remain one country, or will follow the Soviet Union's course and fracture into smaller countries.ʹ- Sovereignty and the "Near Abroad" - discusses the arguments that some sort of reintegration, especially in the economies of the new republics, is not only necessary but desirable.--SCAD summary

Assessment of DoD's Central Identification Lab and the Feasibility of Increasing Identification Rates ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study was commissioned by the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) to address public and Congressional concerns over the pace and scope of work by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) to identify remains, including those already recovered but not yet identified. DPMO requested an independent assessment of viable alternatives for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of JPAC's Central Identification Laboratory (CIL). Specifically, IDA was tasked to examine the actions needed to increase the number of identifications to 180 per year by 2014. This report (i) identifies possible improvements in efficiency and effectiveness within existing (or currently planned) resources; (ii) describes a pragmatic near-term initiative for expanding CIL identification activities by resolving a targeted set of pending cases already in the CIL accessions, and (iii) describes the relationship between the long-term priorities of the identification mission and the types and scale of capabilities that would be necessary to achieve an annual identification rate of 180 per year
History of the ARPA Synthetic Environments for Requirements and Concept Evaluation and Synthesis (SERCES) Program ( )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report documents the key activities and accomplishments of the ARPA Synthetic Environments for Requirements and Concept Evaluation and Synthesis (SERCES) program. The program objective was to demonstrate how distributed simulation could assist in the Defense acquisition process. SERCES sought to merge together several dispersed development simulation activities, to conduct a case study relating to a system within the acquisition process, and to offer tools which could aid other acquisition programs. DARPA, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Joint Program Office (UAV JPO), and the Naval Command, Control, and Ocean Surveillance Center's Navy Research, Development, Test and Evaluation Division (NRaD) agreed to conduct a set of exercises which would support the Maritime Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV). This report reviews the interconnections which were made between the UAV JPO's Joint Development Facility in McLean, Virginia, and the NRaD's Research, Evaluation and System Analysis (RESA) facility in San Diego, California. The results of the initial exercise and of simulations conducted in preparation to the second exercise are described. Also discussed is a process modeling tool that was developed and used for exercise preparation

Field Action Officer Roles in GCCS Development ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This document describes the purpose of the RID and the EPIP documents stemming from the acquisition approach taken to field the Global Command and Control System (GCCS). It briefly explains the evolutionary acquisition approach to GCCS, how GCCS requirements are determined, how each phase of development is planned via the EPIP, and how GCCS software is developed, tested, and fielded. The final section identifies responsibilities for the EPIP implementation

The Future of Military R&D: Towards a Flexible Acquisition Strategy ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The U.S. will have difficulty maintaining its technological superiority for future military systems, due to declining defense budgets, lower levels of production for weapon systems, and great uncertainty regarding future military requirements. What is needed is a military R&D system that generates technological options of sufficient quality and in sufficient numbers so that, in spite of the uncertainty they face, U.S. forces can be fully prepared to meet a wide range of contingencies. The paper explores the attributes of a flexible acquisition strategy, in which numerous options would be explored from basic research (budget category 6.1) through advanced development (6.3A). Programs would enter full development (6.4) less often and more selectively, and not every 6.4 development program would be expected to reach production. The paper recommends and discusses seven actions that are important elements of a flexible acquisition strategy for R&D. DoD should: (1) reaffirm that maintaining superior technological options remains a vital strategic objective, (2) increase funding for science and technology (S&T), (3) treat R&D as a product in its own right, (4) increase the use of prototyping, (5) improve the development of technological options for modifying existing systems, (6) increase the use of commercially available technology, and (7) consider the need for mobilization in weapon system designs
