Summary
This report responds to your request that we review the Air Force's and the Navy's development of the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile and the recent extension of the program's development schedule. The missile is the successor of the Tri-Service Standoff Attack Missile, which was canceled because of its high projected unit cost-over $2 million each-and because development costs had grown to over $4 billion. Rather than modifying another weapon to meet their requirements, the Air Force and the Navy believed that they could rely on existing technologies and improved acquisition strategies to develop a lower-cost weapon more rapidly than previous missile acquisition programs
