[Technical Report, Technical Report]
GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The Joint Strike Fighter JSF program--a multinational acquisition program for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and eight cooperative international partners--is the Department of Defenses DOD most expensive aircraft acquisition program. DOD currently estimates it will spend 623 billion to develop, procure, and operate and support the JSF fleet. The JSF aircraft, which includes a variant design for each of the services, represents 90 percent of the remaining planned investment for DODs major tactical aircraft programs. In fiscal year 2004, the JSF program was rebaselined to address technical challenges, cost increases, and schedule overruns. This report--the third mandated by Congress--describes the programs progress in meeting cost, schedule, and performance goals sincere baselining and identifies various challenges the program will likely face in meeting these goals in the future.
