Dual source procurement in the Tomahawk program by J. L Birkler ( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report, part of a broader study examining the economic implications of establishing a second production source for the Advanced Cruise Missile (ACM), draws on the experience in the Tomahawk cruise missile program to determine (1) whether savings were indeed realized by bringing a second producer into the Tomahawk program, and (2) what conditions are necessary to achieve savings. The authors provide background on the Tomahawk program and its competitive strategies; examine estimates made at different times by different organizations and actual experience to date; and discuss single-source experience, comparing Tomahawk with the air-launched cruise missile, Harpoon, and other missile systems. Bringing a second producer into a program implies incremental non-recurring costs for additional tooling and special test equipment, a technical data package, licensing arrangements, qualification of a second producer, etc. Also, because of the loss of learning-curve benefits, lower production rates for both companies, and smaller quantities over which to spread fixed and semifixed costs, recurring costs may increase when a small production quantity is divided between two companies. It is not self-evident, therefore, that second-sourcing will save money for the government in every major system procurement

The relationship between science and the military in the Soviet Union : a report prepared for Director of Defense Research and Engineering and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency by Simon Kassel ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report analyzes open Soviet basic and applied science research for its possible contribution to development of military technology. As the national planner and evaluator of research and manager of the science and technology information service, the State Committee for Science and Technology cannot be entirely divorced from the early stages of military RDT and E. The research projects of the Academy of Sciences, USSR, include many whose exact American equivalents are either performed or funded by DOD agencies. Ten specific examples are analyzed. There seems no need for such research to be duplicated in secret military facilities, as some believe. Censorship cannot be the only reason why basic research articles so far exceed engineering development reports in number and sophistication, since this is equally true of the technology of automobiles, TV, and cameras. The Soviets are frankly anxious to publish scientific research to maintain international prestige and give their major researchers entree into meetings and conferences where useful information can be gained
Analysis of Air Force aircraft multiyear procurements with implications for the B-2 by Susan J Bodilly ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In response to a congressional mandate that the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) institute a program management initiative for the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber Program, the OSD asked RAND to provide research and analytic support for a strategy to reduce B-2 procurement costs. This report, part of that effort, examines several past uses of multiyear procurement contracting by the Air Force to develop indicators of program stability useful in determining if a program is an appropriate candidate for multiyear procurement contracting. The report reviews the KC-10, F-16, and B-1B multiyear procurement programs regarding perceived risks, contractual arrangements to reduce or allocate those risks, and estimated cost reductions. The authors compare experiences on these procurements and then demonstrate the indicators on the B-2 program. They find that a multiyear procurement contract might allow for attractive cost reductions; however, program instability makes the B-2 an unlikely candidate for a multiyear approach
The structure of Soviet outlays on R & D in 1960 and 1968 : a report prepared for Director of Defense Research and Engineering by Nancy Nimitz ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whether the share of defense/space in total ruble outlays is taken to be three-quarters, as estimated elsewhere, or one-half, as this report estimates, does not alter R and D results but does change implied relative productivities in military and civilian R and D. Differences in sectoral productivity are explained largely by differences in the characteristics of the buyers of new civilian and military capital goods in the USSR. Unlike the civilian customer, the military customer has both market power and an evident preference for technical approaches that save time and restrain costs. The method of estimation links ruble outlays to R and D employment. Total employment and outlays are distributed among 28 branches of the economy (10 nonindustrial and 18 industrial); the contribution of each branch to defense/space is then estimated as a range (defined at the lower end by the percentage share of defense/space in R and D outlays in the analogous U.S. branch in the same year.)
