Abstract:

The requirements determination process for naval weapon systems should lead to the most cost effective solution to meet perceived defense mission deficiencies. The thesis analyzes current Navy requirements determination procedures and evaluates the effectiveness of recent modifications in correcting previously recognized shortcomings in this portion of the acquisition process. A current weakness identified in the navy procedural organization is the designation of platform-oriented DCNOs as Force and Mission Sponsors. Specific recommendations to correct this deficiency include the realignment of existing DCNO Warfare Areas and Logistics with DCNO Mission Areas which are coincident with the RDT and E Planning Categories of Strategic Deterrence, Sea Control, Projection of Power Ashore and Mission Support.
