WEAPON SYSTEMS HANDBOOK This biennial publication details the U.S. Army’s major weapon systems and equipment programs, as well as our Science and Technology initiatives. Sincethe U.S. Army Weapon Systems Handbook has served as a critical reference document that informs key stakeholders and audiences-primarily Congress—about high-priority Army acquisition.

Programs may change their weapon system product support strategy over their life-cycle as they transition from IOC to a fully fielded and mature system and ultimately to retirement. The development of, or revision to, a product support strategy adheres to a logical methodology captured in the step model depicted in Figure 6.

This biennial publication details the U.S. Army's major weapon systems and equipment programs, as well as our Science and Technology responsibility for several hundred programs. Through research, data analysis, and interviews with subject matter experts, the authors analyzed the problems limiting WSSP effectiveness.

The report offers an alternative method for targeting RDs for enhanced support and gives recommendations for improving the WSSP's ability to provide weapon system readiness support. Also ensure any manuals needed to use the weapon system (e.g., JMEM Weaponeering Data Manuals) will be available at the time the weapon system is fielded.

• Finalize OT&E support with AFOTEC. Intelligence support needs and validated requirements should figure prominently in the functional OT&E of the system.

Janes up to date equipment profiles, including imagery, specifications and analysis, enable you to identify and differentiate between weapons, systems and variants and conduct critical all-source. Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) is the selective application of scientific and engineering efforts undertaken during the acquisition process, as part of the system engineering and design process, to assist in complying with supportability and other integrated logistics support (ILS) objectives.

LSA is a. The Office of Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation (CAPE) was established in as part of the Weapon Systems Acquisition Reform Act (WSARA). The origins of the office date to with the establishment of the Office of Systems Analysis, which became the Office of Program Evaluation and Analysis in the mids.
