ABSTRACT

Army Needs to More Effectively Prepare for Production of the Common Infrared Countermeasure System   [open pdf - 3MB]

"We determined whether the Army is effectively preparing the Common Infrared Countermeasure (CIRCM) system for the production phase of the acquisition program. The Army is acquiring the CIRCM system to protect DoD rotary-wing, tilt-rotor, and small fixed-wing aircraft against infrared-guided surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles. […] The Army could more effectively prepare the CIRCM system for production. Specifically, Army management did not: adequately define firm system capability requirements (what the system must do to meet its mission) and test planning (Finding A), and report progress in meeting system reliability and maintainability requirements (Finding C). In addition, Defense Contract Management Agency management had not established surveillance of subcontractor efforts (determining contractor progress and identifying any factors that may delay performance) (Finding B)."
