1. Munitions and associated equipment. The 1966 program provides for a variety of military munitions to further increase the capability of the Air Force to meet air defense and tactical force requirements for both con

ventional and nuclear war. Procurements of the new series of conventional bombs, started in the 1961 program, continue in 1966, including the 250- and 500-lb. antipersonnel and materiel bomb and the 250- and 500-lb. lowdrag bomb for high-speed aircraft, both initiated in the 1965 program. In 1966 it also provides for introduction into Air Force inventories of the TV-guided bomb. Other items planned for continued procurement in 1966 include: air-to-air rocket motors, atomic ordnance components (except fissionable materials), 20-mm. cartridges, targets, chemical warfare items, and miscellaneous munitions components including supplies and materials. The increase in the 1966 program is directly attributable to increases in programs for the support of Air Force tactical forces in worldwide locations.

2. Vehicular equipment.-The 1966 program provides for (1) orderly replacements in the vehicle fleet, (2) continued procurements of special purpose vehicles at levels approximating those of 1965, (3) continued procurements of "M" series (Tactical-Type) vehicles for the support of the worldwide tactical forces, initiated in 1965, (4) continued procurements of the new P-2 fire truck initiated in 1963, (5) continued procurements of materials handling equipment for the rapid movement of cargo on landing strips and in warehouses, and (6) the continued procurements of supplies and materials and modifications of equipment in support of year-round operation of the vehicular fleet.

3. Electronics and telecommunications equipment. The 1966 program provides continued procurements of hardware and ancillary support items for: (1) the command and control systems, including a mobile Tactical Air Control System, (2) an improved semiautomated backup system for the Continental U.S. Aircraft Control and Warning System, (3) improved ballistic missile early warning capabilities, including an austere sea-launched ballistic missile detection system, and the first steps toward implementation of an over-the-horizon radar system, (4) the worldwide Defense Communications System, including communications satisfying strictly Air Force requirements, and (5) cryptographic equipment to extend the secure voice capability within the Air Force. The 1966 program also provides for continued support of other electronic systems, subsystems, and programs, including improvement of weather observation and forecasting capabilities, semiautomation of intelligence data handling, improvement of en route and terminal air traffic control and landing facilities, procurement and installation of communications for operational ballistic missile sites, procurement of equipment in support of the

Air Force intelligence mission, and modification of existing equipment necessary for correction of deficiencies revealed through test or usage. The declining trend in program requirements over the past 3 years reflects substantial completion of significant segments of various weapon support systems. Support of the newer and more sophisticated systems reflected in this estimate continues with a cautious approach until it is clearly demonstrated that the benefits are commensurate with the additional costs.

4. Other base maintenance and support equipment.-The 1966 program provides for procurement at minimum levels required to support the operational units and bases, worldwide. Items planned for continued procurement in 1966 include: (1) common test and calibration equipment, (2) specialized equipment in support of the Foreign Technology Division and the Air Force Technical Applications Center, (3) personal, safety, and rescue equipment, (4) photographic equipment, (5) maintenance and repair shop equipment, (6) aircraft arresting barriers, (7) auxiliary power units, (8) related supplies and materials and (9) equipment modifications.

equipment and techniques. In pursuit of this objective
a spectrum of investigative and engineering activities is
performed including scientific research, exploratory devel-
opment, design and fabrication of experimental weapons
and equipment, and testing of these items to determine
their military utility. This work is performed in Govern-
ment laboratories, in universities, by industrial contractors,
and by nonprofit organizations.

Appropriations in this title support the research,
development, test, and evaluation activities of Army,
Navy, Air Force, and Defense Agencies, such as Advanced
Research Projects Agency, Defense Atomic Support
Agency, and Defense Communications Agency. Re-
Communications Agency. Re-
search and development related to civil defense responsi-
bilities of the Department of Defense is carried in the
separate title, Civil Defense, in this chapter.

In recent years, a significant portion of Defense funding for research and development has been devoted to the simultaneous development of many large strategic weapons systems, such as Titan, Minuteman, and Polaris. By 1966, however, the development, test, and evaluation

1. Military sciences.-This activity includes basic research in the life, physical, mathematical, and social sciences to add to the store of fundamental scientific knowledge, and applied scientific research of importance for military purposes leading to the development of new materials, components, and techniques. Among the many and widely varied scientific fields to be investigated under this activity in 1966 are nuclear weapons effects, nuclear test detection techniques, physical properties of materials, performance of rocket fuels, thermoelectric materials, chemical and biological agents, meteorology, radio astronomy, oceanography, and advanced radar and sonar techniques.

The research and development programs of the Advanced Research Projects Agency and the other Defense Agencies, including the readiness program for nuclear weapons effects testing, are funded in this activity. The principal support for such organizations as the Naval Research Laboratory, the Rand Corporation, the Research Analysis Corporation, and the Institute for Defense Analyses is also provided here. In addition to the amounts directly provided for in this activity, basic and applied research is also performed by industrial contractors supported by certain allowable indirect costs which may be provided for under contracts funded by both the RDT&E and procurement appropriations.

2. Aircraft and related equipment. This activity funds research, development, test, and evaluation related to airframes, engines, and other installed equipment. The 1966 program continues development of the new F-111 high-performance multipurpose fighter aircraft and experimental vertical and short takeoff and landing aircraft,

[ocr errors]

phases of most of these programs either will be essentially completed or will be in the final and less expensive stages, permitting a decrease in funding for this category of effort. However, the amount requested for 1966 for all Defense research and development appropriations is slightly higher than the 1965 congressional appropriation level since decreases are more than offset by increased funding required for penetration aids and other improvement programs for the large strategic systems, and the development of such new systems as the cargo transport C-5A, and the continuing development of systems such as the F-111 tactical aircraft and the Nike-X antimissile system. Other programs contributing to a higher level in 1966 are the manned orbiting laboratory, the tactical and limited warfare weapons developments, and increases for basic research. Military space programs will be supported in 1966 at a level similar to that provided in 1965.

to meet the needs of all the military services. Navy will continue work on an improved light attack aircraft. In addition, the program includes work on other aircraft to improve the mobility and reconnaissance capabilities of the ground forces. Development testing will continue on the SR-71 strategic reconnaissance aircraft, the YF-12A long range interceptor, and the mach-3 XB-70 research aircraft. Development will be initiated on the advanced C-5A cargo transport and on advanced engines and avionics for a future strategic attack aircraft system. Research and test centers are funded under this activity and include, for example, the Air Force Aeronautical Systems Engineering Group at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

3. Missiles and related equipment.-This activity provides for research, development, test, and evaluation of missiles of all types. The development of the advanced design Nike-X system represents a major and high priority effort in the field of defense against ballistic missiles. In addition, an extensive research effort on other ballistic missile defense techniques continues to be funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency within the activity "Military sciences," above. In the strategic field, development will continue on improved versions of the operational Minuteman and Polaris ballistic missiles. Development efforts will be initiated on a new air-to-surface attack missile system. Other significant missile development projects include the continuation of a new Navy surface-to-air missile system, as well as further work on the Lance division support missile for land combat. In addition to funding participation by industry in the missile research and development program, this activity
