Abstract:

Mr. Chainnan, you may have heard of the Departments studies of a Revolution in Military Affairs or RMA. The revolution derives not from a single innovation or idea but from a fundamental change in the way America fights. The revolution is driven by making full use of a wide range of new technology involving sensors, computers, low observables, precision guided munitions and telecommunications. Today, I describe a vision of a second but related revolution -- a Revolution in Military Acquisition Affairs or RMA2. This revolution will change the way America develops and fields weapon systems. Like the first revolution, this second revolution is driven by capturing the synergism derived from the integration of multiple thrusts. In particular, we are making progress on three fronts increasing our focus on life cycle cost reduction making better use of the national industrial base and implementing acquisition process improvements.
