A great amount of emphasis is being placed upon increased interservice calibration support and consolidation of duplicative calibration facilities and capabilities. This thesis examines the concept of directly funding the Army, Navy, and Air Force Metrology and Calibration Programs, from a single line item in the DOD Budget, in order to enhance interservice support and consolidation in the area of Metrology. Information gathered which formed the basis for this thesis was obtained through personal and telephone interviews with key people located throughout the operational spectrum of the three Services Metrology and Calibration Programs. This thesis concludes that direct funding of these programs is not feasible without the establishment of a single DOD manager for Metrology and Calibration primarily because of the differences in the management structure of the three programs and the difficulty in allocating scarce resources between the Services.
