Abstract:

The UTTASUtility Tactical Transport Aircraft System Concept Formulation efforts produced a decision to initiate development the first time it was considered at the OSDOffice of the Secretary of Defense level. The case study attempts to supplement the recorded history with the illumination of the many and varied aspects that impinged on and influenced the UTTAS program. With a potential for more than 2 billion worth of business for a depressed industry, the US aerospace industry, the interests in UTTAS were from a very broad base of industry and government. The multi-service utilization of this class of helicopter added the complexities of possible joint development. The Concept Formulation was done very openly with participation from OSD level to Combat Developments Agency. Although delays were experienced, actions were expedited at decision time.
