(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

Milstar is a joint service program to develop and acquire extremely high frequency (EHF) satellites; a satellite mission control segment; and new or modified Army, Navy, and Air Force communication terminals for survivable, jam-resistant, worldwide, secure communications for the strategic and tactical warfighter in all levels of conflict. Satellites 1 & 2 are Milstar I satellites with a low data rate (LDR) payload only that supports strategic and tactical forces with an emphasis on highly survivable, minimum essential communications. Satellites 3M-6 are Milstar II satellites with both a LDR and a medium data rate (MDR) payload with increased tactical capabilities, including higher data rates to mobile forces and "nulling" that will neutralize close-in enemy jammers. (Satellite 3M was originally a Milstar I satellite, but is being retrofitted with a MDR payload to function as a Milstar II satellite.) This document addresses the space and mission control segments of the Milstar program. This program is in Budget Activity 5, Engineering and Manufacturing Development, based on Defense Acquisition Board and Defense Planning Guidance direction to fabricate and launch Satellites 3M through 6.

(U) Change Summary Explanation:

Funding: FY96 appropriated value represents implementation of the special termination cost clause on the Milstar contract. FY 97-98 adjustments reflect restoral of the original Automated Communications Management System (ACMS) program schedule. FY 99 decrease reflects the reduction in contractor oversight and system engineering support.

Schedule: See ACMS funding explanation.

Technical: None.

Note: Due to the overrun on the Milstar I contract, an Over Target Baseline (OTB) was established in Jan 91 to provide a credible cost performance baseline for the remaining contractual effort. The EAC reflects the unclassified cost of remaining work scheduled after the Jan 91 rebaseline. The total program value includes all unclassified prior funding (approx $4B in FY82 - 92), all unclassified fees & incentives, and ECPs not yet definitized.
