(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

NOTE: The FY96 and FY97 funds shown above are for PE 0604770F. For FY98 and subsequent years, the Joint STARS RDT&E funds were moved to

PE 0207581F, Joint STARS, and are reported under that PE.

This program is in Budget Activity 5 - Engineering and Manufacturing Development, Research Category 6.5. There is an Air Force and Army need to provide, from airborne platforms, near-real time surveillance and targeting information on moving and stationary ground targets (growth to maritime operations), slow moving rotary and fixed wing aircraft, and rotating antennas. This information would enable operational and tactical commanders to make and execute battle decisions. To meet these needs, the Air Force and Army initiated the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) program with the Air Force as lead service. Joint STARS will be capable of providing target information for pairing direct attack aircraft and standoff weapons against selected targets. The system will be capable of being cued by other reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition systems; able to respond rapidly to worldwide contingencies; and provide surveillance and attack information in all light and near-all-weather conditions. The operational utility of the system was effectively demonstrated by the outstanding performance of two developmental aircraft in support of combat operations during Desert Storm. In Dec 1995 two developmental aircraft (one E-8A and one E-8C) were deployed in support of Operation Joint Endeavor in Bosnia. At a Defense Acquisition Board (DAB) Milestone III Review on 17 Sep 96, Full Rate Production of 19 aircraft was approved. In Nov 1996 two E-8Cs were again deployed in support of Operation Joint Endeavor. This time the first production aircraft and the test aircraft were deployed.

*FY97 funds include $6.3M realigned to PE 1001018F, NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance Program. Congressional approval has been requested for $21.6M reprogrammed from Appropriation 3010 aircraft procurement funds.

Funding: The FY96 appropriation included a $20M increase for communications, a $12M reduction for tech order overrun, and a $4.5M increase for NATO for a net increase of $12.5M. Adjustments to the FY96 and FY97 funding are as stated above. The $21.6M adjustment to FY97 reflects a planned reprogramming (DD-1415) from Joint STARS Procurement for implementation of the Joint STARS Life Cycle (Skantze) Cost Reduction effort.

Schedule: The FY98 President's Budget contains funding for one E-8C in FY98 and two in FY99, a change from the March 96 report which showed procurement of two E-8Cs in FY98 and one in FY99.
