The original operational test orientation of this research is noted in the Background paragraph of Chapter 1. To accomplish the original objectives it was necessary to acquire considerable data on the cost, schedule and performance success of programs within the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of development. The current research used the original methodology and expands the results by including more recent programs and additional parameters. Hence this report contains program cost, schedule, and performance results by Service, and within three separate year groupings. It also contains a comparison between the Services’ Operational Test Activity (OTA) test report and the Director Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) independent evaluation of the Service test report.
