Report AB095 is a detailed procurement and research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) spending analysis. The report quantifies – from a budget perspective – the likely effects and program prioritizations brought about by the Air-Sea Battle Concept over time.  


G2 Solutions analyzed Navy and Air Force procurement and RDT&E budget documents through the Air-Sea Battle lens.  157 Programs and/or Program Elements were selected for inclusion based upon the increased importance their capabilities will bring to an aggregate Air-Sea Battle capability.


“We’ve often been asked what happens after 2015, after Iraq and Afghanistan wind down,” said G2 Solutions research director Ron Stearns.  “Concurrently the Pentagon created a dedicated Air-Sea Battle office, with Pentagon leadership indicating a strategic force rebalancing is beginning.”   The 161-page report provides market share for companies such as: Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC), The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) and others. It also includes PoR spending profiles and Program Element (PE) numbers at the procurement and RDT&E levels.  “We know the procurement sands are shifting, and this report provides actionable information on funded programs based upon capabilities and application domains,” Stearns said.  


The F-35 is the single-biggest included program, with $82 billion in identified funding through 2016.  In fact, of the five report segments: (Aircraft, Naval, Space, Munitions, Communications Collection and EW, and Propulsion and Directed Energy) aircraft account for 62 percent of the total spend.   According to the DoD: “Air-Sea Battle is a limited operational concept designed to address an adversary's Anti-Access, Area Denial (A2/AD) capabilities. It is not aimed at any particular potential adversary.” It is clear that this strategy is leveled squarely at freedom of operation across the distances of the Western Pacific.  Air-Sea Battle is evidence of a shift toward countering more conventionally-arrayed peer adversaries.
