Abstract : In 1984, the Army approved the concept of the Advanced Antitank Weapon System-Medium (AAWS-M), which would replace the Dragon Antitank Weapon System, and projected the initial operational capability for the mid-1990's. The AAWS-M was required to be a one-man-portable antiarmor weapon system. The AAWS-M is managed by the AAWS-M Project Office, under the Program Executive Officer for Fire Support. Total program cost was estimated at $4 billion for 58,000 missiles and 5,000 command launch units. Objectives. The audit's overall objective was to evaluate the acquisition management of the AAWS-M Program regarding program management elements critical to a system in the early full-scale development phase. The audit also included a review of the adequacy and sufficiency of internal controls related to the audit objective.
