  • WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE -- The looming threat of another round of budget sequester cuts could mean more civilian worker furloughs and a continued hiring freeze at Wright-Patterson, but layoffs in the next fiscal year aren't likely, a defense analyst said Thursday. Todd Harrison, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments in Washington, D.C., said military personnel are exempt from sequestration cuts under the federal budget, but the civilian workforce isn't.

  • Pentagon officials view the Army as the litmus test for fundamentally transforming the US military. The Army is the barometer for transformation because in the midst of all these fundamental changes, it also has embarked upon the most complex, technologically ambitious and expensive acquisition program in its history - Future Combat Systems. FCS is a family of 18 highly networked air- and ground-based systems that will include a lighter, though equally lethal and survivable, replacement for today's heavy tanks, plus an array of unmanned aerial vehicles, ground sensors, and artillery and missile launch systems that fire intelligent munitions. In its fiscal 2006 request, the Army asked for $3.4 billion in research and development funds for FCS. According to the Center for Strategic and Bu...

  • As the tempo of military operations accelerates in Iraq and Afghanistan, an overstressed Army has embarked on a multiyear program to increase its authorized active-duty end-strength from 512,000 in 2006 to 547,000. It will do so by adding 7,000 to 9,000 soldiers per year. This long-overdue expansion will be accomplished by increasing the number of first-time enlistments (the accession level) and by raising the number of current personnel who re-enlist (the retention level). This will not be an easy task. According to Steven Kosiak, a military-budget expert at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, "It may prove very difficult, or impossible, to achieve this end-strength increase without some at least modest and perhaps significant decline in troop quality." Moreover, if Con...

  • WASHINGTON (AP) - An independent study released Wednesday questions whether the Pentagon is buying too many bomb-resistant vehicles for troops in Iraq in its frantic rush to correct earlier shortfalls. The question, put forward by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments in Washington, is a provocative one. There is a long-held assertion in Congress and the military that the more armor given to troops, the better.

  • The Navy is on the cusp of a historic shift in the way it goes to war, but a new ship set to be the lynchpin of that change needs more extensive testing, according to a report by an influential defense research firm. The thinking behind the proposed "littoral combat ship," is sound, the study by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments concludes, but Navy planners have yet to answer critical questions about how it and the new "mission modules" it is to carry into battle would operate.
