Abstract : Our team looked at the DOD Operational Energy Strategy evolution and how it applies to new and modified weapon systems, considering the three-legged table of the acquisition system: 1) acquisition, 2) requirements and 3) planning, programming, budgeting, and execution (PPBE). We looked at the evolution of the operational energy area initiatives (executive orders, Defense Science Board studies, strategy and policy documents) with a focus on practical ways to gain traction or improve promulgation of key guidance and documentation for new-starts and/or upgrades to weapon system acquisition programs. Additionally, we highlight a few of the in-service initiatives and process improvements underway to reduce fuel consumption.
