The U.S. military's improvement of Unmanned Aerial autos (UAVs) has been hampered by way of expense overruns, time table slippage, and disappointing operation effects. The excessive Altitude patience UAV (HAE UAV) joint application, initiated less than the course of the protection complicated study enterprise (DARPA), accommodates a number of leading edge parts in its acquisition procedure that go away appreciably from conventional acquisition methods. The program's improvement part for the worldwide Hawk and DarkStar air vehiclesin analyzed during this examine.

During FY95, Tier II+ contractors involved in Phase I were interviewed, and additional information was collected from the Phase II contractor regarding transition to that phase. During FY97, we conducted interviews with the prime contractors for each of the three HAE UAV program components: Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical (Global Hawk) Lockheed Martin Skunk Works (DarkStar) Raytheon E-Systems (CGS). Several discussions with JPO personnel took place during FY97 and FY98 as well. Task 2: Comparisons with Other Programs.

The result was a tailored program structure with increased contractor design responsibility and management authority. Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD) used Integrated Product Teams (IPTs) to manage the program. Each IPT included contractor and government personnel who worked together to resolve issues. Cost was the single firm requirement. The HAE UAV program had only one requirement: a unit flyaway price (UFP) of $10 million for air vehicles 1120 (in FY94 dollars). All other performance characteristics were stated as goals and could be traded to achieve the UFP target.
