(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

(U) National security requirements dictate a continuing, highly reliable means of placing critical DoD satellites into required orbits. The Titan IV program provides the capability to launch the largest of these satellites into near-earth or geosynchronous orbits from either the east or west coast launch facilities. Titan IV is used to launch Air Force, NRO, and NASA payloads. This program provides several different configurations for the Titan IV [No Upper Stage (NUS), Inertial Upper Stage (IUS), and Centaur]. In addition, the Titan IV program has developed a new vehicle configuration, the Titan IVB, with solid rocket motor upgrade (SRMU), new avionics and ground support equipment to meet reliability and increased performance requirements. This program provides continuing integration support to the payload community as well as continuing engineering support to maintain system characterization and reliability.

(U) Beginning in FY94, this program element also included funding for engineering costs, payload integration, and Government costs for the Titan II space launch vehicle. This program is included in Budget Activity 7, Operational Systems Development, since both Titan II and Titan IV are operational launch vehicles.

(U) Acquisition Strategy:

(U) The program has implemented a revised acquisition strategy for the entire 41-vehicle program. During FY1996, Titan IV has transitioned from the old 41-vehicle development/production and payload integration contracts to new contracts designed to improve cost accountability, correct contract discrepancies, and establish an overall programmatic view for the effort to complete the program. The new contracts combine Titan II and Titan IV production, storage, pad maintenance and deactivation, launch operations, anomaly resolution, development and hardware requalification, payload integration, and program studies to provide the greatest potential for cost savings by maximizing use of resources and eliminating duplicative processes.

(U) Change Summary Explanation:

Funding: FY96 Omnibus Reprogram includes additional funds for Solid Rocket Motor Upgrade requalification requirements, and deletes some funding to pay for higher Air Force priorities. Other FY96 reductions are due to higher Air Force priorities. FY98 reduction realigns SRMU requalification funds to missile procurement appropriation. FY99 increase is for deferred engineering design effort of Titan IVB vehicles.

Schedule: FY96 and FY97 reductions result from deletion of the CPF Acquisition Program Baseline (APB) Initial Operational Capability (IOC) milestone in June 97.

Technical: FY96 and FY97 reductions result from termination of the off-pad Centaur upper stage processing , cryogenic tanking, and storage capability.
