Abstract : Our review of 24 selected systems identified 71 issues, falling into two broad areas and 15 rather specific categories, which either have a direct bearing on the weapon systems' effectiveness or management of the acquisition program. These issues are not intended to represent all of the problems or questions associated with the weapon programs reviewed. The issue categories should also not be considered independently because some of the categories are very closely related.
