This is our final report on the audit of the Tacit Rainbow Anti-Radiation Missile System Tacit Rainbow for your information and use. We performed the audit from March through December 1990. The audit objective was to evaluate the acquisition management of the air-launched Tacit Rainbow system to determine if the system was being adequately readied for production and deployment. We found numerous management problems however, this report contains no recommendations because DoD took action to cancel the Tacit Rainbow system in FY 1992. We are bringing the issues identified during the audit to your attention as lessons learned in the event the program is reinstated. Also, the issues raised may be of interest to other program managers. The Air Force is the lead Military Department for this joint Navy and Air Force program. The Air Force Joint Tactical Autonomous Weapons System Program Office Program Office, Aeronautical Systems Division, manages the program. For FYs 1932 through 2000, the total estimated acquisition cost of the system was about 4 billion.
