wa s hi ng t o n rep ort DOD RELEASES FY2013 BUDGET REQUEST The Pentagon, having received White House guidance earlier this year on a national security policy shift that will focus heavily on the Asia-Pacific region, released its FY2013 budget request to Congress last month. The Department is asking for $5.3 billion for electronic warfare (EW) and signals intelligence (SIGINT) programs, with approximately $2.3 billion proposed for research and development and $3 billion requested for procurement. ARMY The Army wants to spend $301.5 million in FY2013 on research and development for EW and SIGINT. This includes $49.3 million for the Integrated EW System (IEWS) and $97.4 million on the Common IR Countermeasures (CIRCM) system. (The Navy is also requesting $4.4 million toward CIRCM development in FY2013.) Across the FY2013-2017 Future Years Defense Program (FYDP), the Army plans to spend $508.4 million on IEWS R&D, and the Army and Navy are estimating $508.4M in joint spending for CIRCM development. One minor new start in the Army R&D accounts is $4.7 million for “Next Generation Signals,” part of an upgrade for the Army’s Prophet SIGINT system. The Army is seeking $241.9 million for EW and SIGINT procurement. This includes $127.8 million for AAR-57 Common Missile Warning System Generation 3 Electronic Control Units; $48.7 million for 13 Prophet Ground SIGINT systems and $15.4 million for 112 Duke Technology Insertion (DTI) units. (The Army could buy as many as 27,500 DTI units over the next several years.) NAVY AND MARINE CORPS The Navy and Marine Corps are requesting a total of $3 billion for EW and SIGINT programs in FY2013. This includes $84.8 million for operations and maintenance, $942.3 million for R&D and $2 billion for procurement. Airborne Electronic Attack dominates the Navy’s budget request. The largest R&D item is $187 million for the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ). This represents a significant reduction ($150 million) for the program. (In last year’s budget, the Navy said it planned to spend $337.7 million on NGJ development in FY2013.) The Navy estimates the total NGJ development cost at $2 billion. The Navy is also requesting $1 billion for procurement of its final 12 EA-18Gs. The Navy is seeking $69.5 million for continued development of the Joint Allied Threat Awareness System (JATAS), which is slated to enter production in FY2014. (The Navy estimates JATAS production will total $1.2 billion.) It also plans to spend $114.7 million on procurement of airborne EW self-protection systems, such as DoN LAIRCM systems for Marine Corps CH-53 helicopters and ALQ214 jammers for F/A-18C/D Hornets. The Navy is requesting $151.4 million for surface ship EW R&D. The DOD’s new defense strategy has brought a particular focus to this area, as Chinese and Iranian anti-ship missiles represent significant threats. The Navy’s request includes money for various aspects of the Surface EW Improvement Program (SEWIP), as development of the Block 2 electronic support system winds down in preparation for full-rate production in FY2014, and development of the Block 3 electronic attack system ramps up. In the shipboard SIGINT area, the Navy plans to spend $23.3 million to continue upgrades to the Ship Signals Exploitation Equipment (SSEE), as it migrates from SSEE Increments E and F to Increment G. The Marines plan to spend $13 million developing upgrades and enhancements for ground-based SIGINT and electronic attack systems, including its Team Portable Collection System (TPCS) and the vehicle-mounted Communication Emitter Sensing and Attacking System (CESAS). The Navy will also spend $71.3 million on JCREW development for the Marines. JCREW executive agent responsibilities will be transferring to the Army in the future. AIR FORCE The Air Force is requesting $1.7 billion for EW and SIGINT programs related to airborne, space and cyber programs. This includes $974.8 million for R&D and $697.4 million for procurement. Major R&D programs in the FY2013 request include Long Range Strike, which has significant EW content, and $281 million for B-2 Defensive Management System Modernization (DMS-M), which represents a new start. The Air Force plans to spend a total of $1.2 billion on B-2 DMS-M development, which will focus on a new ESM system for the aircraft. Another new start is the F-15 Eagle Passive/Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), which will replace the F-15’s Tactical EW Suite (TEWS). The Air Force wants to upgrade 396 F-15s with the EPAWSS. In the Air Force’s EW procurement accounts, $169 million is requested for the LAIRCM system, as installations continue on C-17, C-5, C-130J and HC/MC-130J aircraft. The Air Force also wants $87.5 million for 220 Miniature Air Launched DecoyJammer (MALD-J) systems. The Air Force has cancelled the MALD-J Increment II program. – J.
