(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: The F/A-18 is capable of using external equipment to perform either fighter or attack missions. The capabilities of the F/A-18 weapon system can be upgraded to accommodate and incorporate new or enhanced weapons as well as advances in technology to respond effectively to emerging future threats. Continued development capability is required to successfully optimize new F/A-18 weapon system capabilities in the Fleet. Additionally, continued improvements in reliability and maintainability are necessary to ensure maximum benefit is achieved through reduced cost of ownership and to provide enhanced availability.

PROGRAM ELEMENT TITLE: F/A-18 SQUADRONS

(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION (Continued): The F/A-18 Naval Strike Fighter program transitioned from full-scale engineering development to operational systems development during FY 1983. As F/A-18 squadrons report discrepancies and new requirements, a continuing capability is needed to perform technical evaluations, investigative flight testing, software support, and incorporate Pre-Planned Product Improvements (P3I) (i.e., capability enhancements). The F/A-18 radar (APG-65) has been upgraded to the APG-73 to operate in the projected electronic warfare environment of the 1990's. The follow-on F/A-18 (E/F version) is an airframe upgrade incorporating increased capabilities, performance,and survivability necessary to satisfy the 41% percent increase in range over the C/D in the high-low-low-high attack/interdiction mission carrying three 480 gallon drop tanks, four 1000 pound bombs, and two AIM-9 air-to-air missiles. The E/F version will have increased internal fuel capacity, increased weapons carriage capability, increased carrier recovery payload, enhanced survivability/vulnerability, increased growth capacity, and increased engine thrust. It will retain all of the P3I enhancements developed for the earlier night attack C/D version of the aircraft.

(U) JUSTIFICATION FOR BUDGET ACTIVITY: This program is funded under OPERATIONAL SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT because it encompasses engineering and manufacturing development for upgrade of existing, operational systems.

(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: The F/A-18 is a multi-mission strike fighter aircraft that is used in fighter and attack roles through selected use of external equipment (such as external fuel tanks, targeting and navigation Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) pods). The capabilities of the F/A-18 weapon system are being upgraded to accommodate and incorporate new or enhanced weapons including the AMRAAM, Imaging Infrared (I2R) Maverick, Harpoon, and SLAM as well as other advances in technology such as night attack, reconnaissance, enhanced performance engine and radar upgrade to respond effectively to emerging future threats. Continued development capability in terms of software and hardware improvements is required to successfully optimize new F/A-18 weapons system capabilities in the fleet. Continued improvements in reliability and maintainability for the airframe, avionics, and engines are necessary to ensure maximum benefit is achieved through reduced cost of ownership and enhanced availability. As F/A-18 squadrons report system problems and requirements, a continuing capability is needed to perform technical evaluations, investigative flight testing, software support, and incorporate capability enhancements.

FY 1996 FY 1997 FY 1998 FY 1999
(U) FY 1997 President's Budget: 45,117 43,105 43,248 28,151
(U) Appropriated amount: 61,105
(U) Adjustments from President's Budget: -10,591 +15,571 +3,862 +42,037
(U) FY 1998/99 President's Budget Submit: 34,526 58,676 47,110 70,188

(U) CHANGE SUMMARY EXPLANATION:

B. Funding: The net decrease of -$10,591 thousand in FY 1996 reflects the BOL Chaff rescission and a reprioritization of requirements within the Department of Navy.

(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: The F/A-18 radar (AN/APG-65), requires an upgrade to improve Electronic Counter-Countermeasure (ECCM) performance against improved threat Electronic Countermeasures (ECM). This threat ECM improvement has partially resulted from compromises in the F/A-18 radar performance against various threat electronic warfare systems. The AN/APG-73 radar follows and capitalizes on AN/APG-70 and AN/APG-71 developmental and value engineer-ing programs to maximize Shop Replaceable Assembly (SRA) commonality. A Pre-planned Product Improvement (P3I) Phase II program will develop improved hardware and software for an all-weather Reconnaissance (RECCE) strip map and spotlight modes.

(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: The F/A-18 is a twin-engine, mid-wing, multi-mission, tactical aircraft employed in Navy and Marine Corps strike fighter squadrons. The F/A-18, through selected use of external equipment is designed for flexibility in fighter, attack, fleet air defense, and close air support roles. The F/A-18 E/F variant is an upgrade to the night attack "C" and "D" models. The F/A-18 E/F will be the second major upgrade since the program's inception. The F/A-18 E/F incorporates modifications to the air vehicle to increase mission radius, payload flexibility, improve survivability, increase carrier recovery payload and growth potential. This will allow the F/A-18 to continue to adapt its strike fighter role to evolving threats into the next century. The F/A-18 E/F E&MD program is under a Congressional mandated cost cap of $4.883B FY90 dollars. Pre-development effort of $36.6M in FY90 base year dollars, previously funded under the F/A-18 C/D program, is reflected in the RDT&E total, but is not included in the approved $4.883B development cap.

B. (U) PROGRAM CHANGE SUMMARY
FY 1996 FY 1997 FY 1998 FY 1999
(U) FY 1997 President's Budget: 820,411 360,462 157,042 123,153
(U) Appropriated amount: 358,262
(U) Adjustments from President's Budget: -17,286 -17,287 +110,494 +5,550
(U) FY 1998/99 President's Budget Submit: 803,125 343,175 267,536 128,703

(U) CHANGE SUMMARY EXPLANATION:

(U) Funding: The net reduction of -$17,286 thousand in FY 1996 reflects the Jordanian Rescission, SBIR assessment, and minor program adjustments. The net decrease of -$17,287 thousand in FY 1997 is comprised of Congressional general reductions, Navy Working Capital Fund (NWCF) and balancing adjustments. The net increase of +110,494 thousand in FY 1998 represents funding required to maintain the F/A-18 E/F Variant Engineering and Manufacturing Development Program schedule (+$111M), development of Test Program Sets (+$7M) and various other program adjustments (-$8M). The net increase of +$5,550 thousand in FY 1999 consists of NWCF and balancing adjustments

(-$1.450) along with funding to continue TPS development (+$7M).

(U) Schedule: Operational Assessment was completed in the third quarter of 1996. It was incorrectly identified in the 1997 President's Budget as being completed in the second quarter of 1996. Engine Full Power Qualification (FPQ) will be delayed by one quarter due to a high pressure turbine design modification required as a result of Low Power Qualification (LPQ) test information. Navy Program Reviews (NPRs) and LRIP Contract Awards were added to the budget exhibit. Test milestones DT-IIB, DT-IID, OT-IIA (TECHEVAL) and OT-IIC(OPEVAL) were added to the budget exhibit based on the Test and Evaluation Master Plan.

(U) Technical: Not Applicable.
